Cheese stuffed chicken nuggets

This one tops the list of my most favorite winter snacks. Just dip in mayo and bite into a piece of succulent juicy chicken breast and the melted cheese simply oozes into your mouth. This recipe was inspired from ‘Tasty’ and improvised to suit my taste. B612_20180121_070311.jpg

Ingredients:

  • Chicken breasts
  • Cheese slice of your choice
  • salt and pepper
  • soy sauce (optional)
  • Bread crumbs/ crushed cheese balls
  • Egg
  • Flour
  • Oil to deep fry.

Method:

  1. Marinate the chicken pieces with salt and pepper and few drops of soy sauce if you like the flavor.
  2. Make a small slit on the middle of each piece and stuff in a small piece of cheese.
  3. Coat the pieces in flour, dip in beaten egg and coat again with either bread crumbs or crushed cheese balls.
  4. Deep fry in hot oil until the cheese melts and the chicken turns golden brown and well cooked.
  5. Serve with mayo or tomato ketchup.

Notes:

  • You can use any cheese of your choice. A burger cheddar cheese slice was what I liked best and the color of the oozing cheese was also very appetizing!
  • Make sure to not make the chicken pieces too thick or it might not get properly cooked on the inside. 
  • Stuff in enough amounts of cheese obviously 😉
  • Always maintain a medium high heat and do not overheat the oil as this would cause the chicken pieces to burn on the outside and not get properly cooked on the inside. 
  • Even though bread crumbs is easier job, this tastes much better with cheese balls. So if you happen to have a packet lying there, use it.
