Homemade Chicken nuggets! Egg, dairy, Gluten free

Homemade chicken nuggets ! These are quicker to make than you would think! And a healthier option than lots of frozen nuggets.


  • 1 Chicken breast (or even sandwich chicken if you are wanting a super speedy meal)
  • Corn flour 
  • Water 
  • 3-4 slices BFree (Gluten free bread)
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder 
  • Pinch of Salt 
  • Pinch of Pepper 


  1. Cut chicken into flat chunks (to replicate nuggets)
  2. Mix breadcrumbs in a blender
  3. Make up the corn flour mixture by mixing corn flour and water (this replicates the egg binding the breadcrumbs)
  4. Put breadcrumbs, garlic, salt and pepper into a large bowl or sandwich bag
  5. Dip the chicken into the cornflour, then breadcrumbs. Repeat if necessary. 
  6. Fry with oil on medium to high for around  8-10 minutes (remembering to flip them when crispy)
  7. You Can also finish them off in the oven if you prefer
  8. Let them rest on kitchen roll to drain the excess grease 
  9. Enjoy!

  • For a spicier version, add chilli pepper!
  • For a healthier version, oven instead of fry!
  • For a veggie / vegan version use a meat substitute!
