Preparation

Chicken Nuggets

  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. In a food processor, coarsely chop the chicken with the green onion. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Using a 1-tablespoon (15 ml) ice cream scoop, form the mixture into balls. With lightly oiled hands, finish shaping them into nuggets.
  4. In a shallow bowl, mix the flour with turmeric and paprika. In a second shallow bowl, lightly beat the eggs. In a third shallow bowl, place the breadcrumbs. Add the oil and mix well.
  5. Dredge the nuggets in the flour, shaking off any excess. Next, dip the nuggets in the beaten egg, letting any excess drip off. Coat them nuggets with the breadcrumbs. Place on a nonstick baking sheet or one covered in parchment paper.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes, turning them over halfway through. Serve with the accompanying sauces.
