Homemade Chicken Nuggets with Cheese. Step by step recipe
- Let's start processing the fillet. To do this, you can use a food processor with a small nozzle or carefully cut with a knife. It is very important not to turn the meat into minced meat. Remember: it must be chopped, so it should not be chopped in the combine for long: approximately 15 seconds.
- We spread the chopped fillet in a working bowl and drive a couple of eggs into the mass.
- After that, salt and pepper to your taste.
- Now thoroughly mix all the ingredients to get a homogeneous consistency. To do this, it is better to use a wooden spatula, but you can also use a spoon.
- After this, it is recommended to mix the mass with your hands so that all the ingredients are evenly distributed between the meat.
- We take hard cheese and rub it through a coarse grater. Then we send it to the chopped fillet and stir until a consistency is obtained. The mass should become elastic: that is, not contain excess fluid and not be too thick.
- Take another deep container. Break a couple of eggs into it, slightly add salt. After that, beat them with a fork so that the mass becomes a uniform color.
- We take a tablespoon, slightly moisten it with water so that the stuffing does not stick. We do the same with hands.
- We gather a little mincemeat and twist the small meatballs: we form chicken nuggets from it.
- After balls roll in flour, shake off excess. After dipping in the egg mass and bread in breadcrumbs.
- We put a frying pan with high sides on medium heat. Pour a large amount of oil to create a deep fat effect.
- We wait until the oil is heated. At this time, we carefully insert the toothpicks on top of the ball.
- You can check the oil temperature with a clove of garlic: if bubbles appear, then you can start to fry chicken nuggets with cheese filling. Please note: it is very important that the oil does not boil.
- Throw the chicken nuggets with cheese into butter and fry until a uniform golden color. Then we get them on a waffle or paper towel so that the excess oil is glass.
