Chicken nuggets are a beloved fast food staple that are loved by both children and adults alike. However, you don’t need to rely on the drive-thru to get your fix of crispy and delicious chicken nuggets. Making homemade chicken nuggets is easy and much healthier than store-bought versions. Here’s how to make this at home.


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt

  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees F.
  2. Cut the chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper.
  4. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk.
  5. In a third bowl, add the bread crumbs.
  6. Dip each chicken piece into the flour mixture, then into the egg mixture, and finally into the bread crumbs, making sure to coat each piece well.
  7. Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
  8. Once the oil is hot, add the chicken pieces to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy.
  9. Remove the chicken nuggets from the pan and place them on a paper towel to remove any excess oil.
  10. Transfer the chicken nuggets to a baking sheet and place them in the oven for 5-10 minutes, or until they are cooked through.
