Chicken nuggets with a coating of potato crisps

Are you stumped as to what to prepare for dinner tonight, maybe because you have a number of children to feed after an enjoyable day playing outside with their friends? Well, let us suggest something special, a perfect recipe for chicken ‘nuggets’. Don’t worry, it will not be the usual TV dinner with thighs or wings that, in the end, bores us even at the very sight of it. No, our chicken nuggets are made with a special ‘breading’ made with potato crisps, crunchy and irresistible. Make plenty of them, because they will be irresistibly tempting to a table full of young diners: as soon as the first few bites have been taken, the kids will inevitably demand more, and still more, licking their plates clean. The only drawback of this recipe is that after making it once, your children will not give you any peace until you make it again.

Cut the chicken breast into chunks 4cm long, 2cm wide and 2cm thick. Salt them lightly. Whisk the eggs in a bowl and lightly salt them. Crumble the crisps and transfer to a separate bowl. Dip the pieces of chicken in flour, then in the beaten egg and finally in the crumbled crisps. Make a sauce by mixing the chopped the parsley, crushed garlic and mayonnaise with a dash of lemon juice. Heat some oil in a frying pan and fry the coated chicken pieces. Serve piping hot with the sauce.

You should open a lovely bottle of wine to go with this special dish of chicken nuggets with a crispy coating: the ideal is a medium-bodied red.
In the United States, and more specifically in the city of Buffalo, there is an annual competition to see who can eat the most chicken wings.
