Ingredients for 24 Buffalo Chicken Nuggets:
1 1/2 pound chicken thigh
2 tablespoons fine dry breadcrumbs
1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning (here is a link to a copy cat recipe)
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1 tablespoon Franks hot sauce
1 tablespoon melted butter
For the starch coating:
1/2 cup corn starch
1/3 cup self-rising flour (or mix 1/3 cup all-purpose flour with 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/8 tsp salt)
1/4 teaspoon salt
– After coating, let sit in fridge until starch on surface is absorbed. For best results, flip over once while in fridge.
– Fry for 1 minute at 300 F., then chill, and finish when ready to serve by frying for 2 minutes at 375 F., or until cooked through. Exact time depends on size and shape of your nugget.
