I found a recipe for Batter Fried Chicken Nuggets over at the GFCF Recipes Yahoo site at Recipe Circus. (So, no credit to me for the recipe) At first glance, I didn't think it could possibly work. Well, it does. There's no author listed. And, I -- of course -- played with the recipe a little bit. The best part of this recipe is that you can use any flour you like and it turns out pretty much like the nuggets you buy at McDonalds. So, if that's what you're looking for, this is the recipe.
- chicken: I cut up about 3 breasts.
- 1/3 cup gf flour (I used about 80 percent brown rice flour and 20 percent tapioca)
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1 1/2 tsp Heinz vinegar (or other gf brand)
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/3 cup water
So, you mix the flour and salt in a bowl. Then, combine the vinegar and soda in another small bowl, quickly dumping it in the flour as it reacts. Then, quickly add the water. Whisk well. Let this sit for about 5 minutes. It thickens. Meanwhile, heat some oil in a frying pan. Mix your chicken pieces in the batter and let them sit in there while the oil heats. When hot, fry until golden brown and cooked through.
Trust me, this works. And it's quick. And it's very simple.
