Fried chicken nuggets
Forget about any supermarket or fast-food chicken nuggets, these are much more wonderful! Crispy on the outside, succulent on the inside; this is a perfect dish to accompany pasta, potato or rice dishes with a salad on the side. Take 2 chicken breast fillets; 1 lemon; Panko (Japanese) bread crumbs, 1 egg yolk; salt, pepper, olive oil.
Cut the chicken breasts into chunks and marinate in a mixture of egg yolk, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, a bit of white wine or Noilly Prat, and pepper and salt. Leave for at least 15 minutes. Then coat the chicken pieces in Panko bread crumbs and put on a plate until ready for frying. Panko bread crumbs come in a large bag and are from Japan, they are very white, quite chunky and without any nasty flavors supermarket bread crumbs can have; they fry very well and produce an absolute great crust with the egg-yolk, better than other crumbs on the market. Try to hunt them down in the Chinese or Oriental store, you won’t regret it!
Fry in a mixture of oil and butter in a hot pan, and take out when crispy. This will take a couple of minutes, if you are not sure, take one out and cut it open to check for doneness. Serve with lemon wedges and sprinkle with parsley. But be quick if you are not eating them alone – they will be gone in no time!
