Super duper chicken nuggets

  • 250 to 500ml vegetable oil
  • 300g to 400g breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp white pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp thyme
  • 140g plain flour
  • 2 to 4 eggs, beaten
  • 4 to 6 boneless chicken breasts
1) Add the vegetable oil to a deep pan and preheat to 180C. Combine the breadcrumbs, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, white pepper, cayenne pepper and thyme in a large bowl. Place the flour and eggs into separate bowls. Set aside.

2) Slice the chicken into 1cm strips. Don't forget to remove the cartilage from the centre of the breast. Cover each strip evenly in flour, then submerge in the eggs, to coat well. Let excess egg drip off, and then coat with the breadcrumb mixture.

3) Fry the strips in hot oil until golden brown. Remove from the fryer, drain on kitchen paper and serve.
