Pesach Chicken Nuggets

Pesach Chicken Nuggets

Serves 4-6

This recipe was taken from my devoted aunt Rochie who patiently stands in front of her stove makes these fresh- to- plate practically every holiday that she can.

Tip: I use this recipe all the time for almost anything that I want to batter and fry. If I don’t have potato starch I substitute flour and add a little water to loosen the batter as I need.

4 eggs

¾ cup Potato Starch

¼ tsp. salt

dash pepper

¼ tsp of basil or oregano

¼ cup vegetable oil

4-6 boneless chicken breasts cut into small nugget chunks

Vegetable oil for frying

Heat vegetable oil in large frying pan.

In a small bowl combine the first 6 ingredients well. Dip chicken pieces into batter and cover chicken well. Using a fork gently place chicken into hot oil and let fry on each side for about 3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove and drain on paper towel. Serve hot.

Bonus recipe – Spicy Corn Dogs.

4-5 hot dogs already boiled in water

Make this batter recipe and add, 1 tsp. curry, 1 tsp. cumin, ½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes. Dredge the cooked hot dogs first in flour and then the batter. Fry in hot oil until batter turns golden brown about 3 minutes. For fun stick a chopstick into center of hot dog and serve hot with favorite dipping sauce.
