Steps To Make Burger King Chicken Nuggets

1. Shake It Until You Make It

Take a large resealable bag. Combine flour, granulated garlic, salt, and pepper in it. This will be the seasoning for your nuggets.

Now, add the chicken pieces to the bag, seal the bag, and shake it so that each piece gets adequately coated. While the pieces are in the bag, massage the seasoning over the pieces.

2. Crumbs For Coating

Then, take a rimmed plate and spread out breadcrumbs. Season it with salt and pepper and leave it undisturbed. Now, in a medium-sized bowl, mix an egg with a tablespoon of water. Take another medium-sized bowl and put the all-purpose flour into it. Also, heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Meanwhile, take the chicken out from the bags. Coat it with flour first, followed by the egg mixture, and finally with breadcrumbs. Use your tongs carefully to add the chicken into already hot oil and allow it to cook for about 4 minutes.

3. Golden Nuggets

When chicken turns golden brown and is cooked thoroughly, drain on some paper towels. Serve hot with your favorite dips and sauces.
