Expert Tips

Always place the chicken nuggets in small batches. If you overlap them, air will not pass through the nuggets. So, you will get steamed rather than crispy nuggets.

Dos and Don'ts:

  1. To get the crunchy flavor, spread some cooking oil on the chicken nuggets. You may also add pepper for an extra spicy flavor.
  2. The selection of pan plays a vital role in crispy, yummy nuggets. The aluminum pan provides the best golden brown texture. It is easy to clean also.
