I have made chicken nuggets  -  I think a Donna Hay recipe. From memory, roll in egg white, then in grated parmesan and grill. They were yummy and GF. Next time I will use the buttermilk as well.
Thanks Hally

Ever since seeing these on Nigella's show , I have been making these with gluten free crackers, but prior to my TM I used to crush the crackers in a plastic bag with a rolling pin. Now I do them in the TM and the whole process is much easier. The buttermilk is crucial to the entire recipe, it seems to elevate the taste of the chicken to another level entirely. Great recipe! My kids always request it- they could eat  it 7 days a week if I let them!!

Merlin, I agrre its the buttermilk that makes the chicken so delicious in your mouth.

We love them too, sometimes serve  them with lime aoili, yum :P

I think anyone at any age would enjoy them.

Is the buttermilk the bought variety or can you use buttermilk leftover from buttermaking Hally?  The bought variety is so much thicker but I have plenty of home made buttermilk and would like to use it if possible.

You could also use crushed cornflakes.  I remember seeing a recipe years ago from those four ingredient books that used chicken breast, mayo, crushed cornflakes and melted  butter (cooked in the oven).  I might try them with buttermilk and crushed cornflake crumbs.

We had these for a light tea tonight and as home made buttermilk is so runny, I added a few tablespoons of leftover mashed potato to thicken it so that it would cling to the chicken pieces better.  (got the idea from Uni for thickening dips ;))
It worked and these were delicious.  I got 24 pieces from one very large chicken breast so there is enough leftover for tomorrow's lunch.  Thanks Hally, this is a nice one to keep in mind for the grand-kids.

Glad you liked them, I made them into goujons today.

Good thinking with the mash. Yes all kids love these & they are healthy.
