Homemade Triple Crunch Chicken Nuggets

Homemade Triple Crunch Chicken Nuggets

(Serves 4 or more)

My homemade chicken nuggets are super crunchy and delicious.  Baked or fried you can gladly say bye bye to fast food or frozen nuggets. Introduce to your family to the new nuggets on the block. 

Mixing bowls 
Cutting board
Aluminum foil
Skillet and vegetable oil for frying
Baking sheet and olive oil for baking
Clean sandwich or plastic bag
2 Pre-seasoned or marinated chicken breasts
Whole wheat crackers
Plain Panko Bread Crumbs
Kraft Grafted Parmesean Cheese 
(The one in the green bottle used most often for pizza or spaghetti)
2-4 Large Brown Eggs

1.Prepare the weapons!
(Set up your dredging station, put foil on baking sheet or add oil to skillet)
2. Steam it up, little darling (Bob Marley)
(Preheat oven for baking or warm oil for frying)
3. Slice and Dice
(Cut chicken breasts into cubes - sizes will not alarmed)
4. If you're using pre-seasoned or marinated meats - go you
If not, sprinkle sprinkle on your favorite blend of seasonings
5. Get crackin
(Crack and whisk all eggs)
6. Just beat it (Lil M.J)
(Place whole wheat crackers in a plastic bag and beat them to crumbs)
7. Roll up those sleeves, it's dredge time
In one bowl, put your flour. In the bowl "next to it" (Lupe Fiasco), add Panko bread crumbs, whole wheat cracker crumbs and the grated Parmesean. Use your hands to blend. Fun right!
9. Now, let's get messy 
Take a few pieces of chicken and coat in the flour, then the egg wash, then the bread crumb-cracker-panko mixture
10. Run dat back
11. Now real gentle and easy like Sunday morning, lay them down
(Place evenly over baking sheet, leaving enough room to avoid overcrowding.)
11. Drop it low girl, drop it, drop it low (Ester Dean)
(Drop in oil to fry.  Small batches, to avoid overcrowding)
12.  Pancake 
(No not pancakes for real, just flip the chicken halfway through cooking. Like you would a pancake, get it? No!...dats cool. I'll be corny all by myself)
 13. Bakers, after about 30-35 minutes remove nuggets & sprinkle with Parmesan cheese 
(DO NOT question the cheese, please!)
14.  Just keep frying, just keep frying (Finding Nemo)
(If you're frying your nuggets, fry them in batches. Just a few of them, at a time)
15. As you collect them from "the FIYAAAA" (Chaka Khan)
(remove nuggets from oil and drain on paper towels)
16. Let it snowwww, let it snowwwwwww (This goes without saying!)
Sprinkle with Parmesean cheese, immediately
17. Bon Apetit
