Ingredients

  • 500 g Chicken Cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 150 g Plain Flour
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Oregano Dried
  • 1/4 tsp Thyme Dried
  • 1 Egg
  • 200 ml Water
  • Oil For frying

Instructions

  • Whisk together flour, salt, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, and dried thyme in a mixing bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, beat an egg and blend in cold sparkling water. Gradually combine the wet mixture with the dry ingredients, stirring until a smooth batter forms. Allow the batter to rest for 5 minutes.
  • Optionally, marinate the chicken pieces in your preferred seasoning for added flavour. Otherwise, proceed to the next step.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a deep pan or pot over medium heat, aiming for an oil temperature of approximately 170°C (340°F).
  • Coat each chicken piece in the batter, ensuring full coverage, and gently place it into the hot oil. Fry the nuggets in batches to prevent overcrowding. Fry for roughly 4-5 minutes until the nuggets turn a golden brown and attain a crispy texture.
  • Utilize a slotted spoon to lift the chicken nuggets from the oil and transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels, helping to absorb any excess oil.
  • Optionally, you can allow the chicken nuggets to rest for 30 minutes before frying. This step can enhance the coating’s lightness and crispiness.
  • Present the battered chicken nuggets while still hot, accompanied by your favoured dipping sauces.
