  • 1 kg of boneless, free-range chicken (cut into nuggets)
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 cup of olive oil
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 2 cups of breadcrumbs (store-bought)
  • Salt and pepper


  • Step 1: Grab a large bowl and place 2 cups of cold water with 1 tablespoon of salt and Worcestershire sauce. Stir to dissolve. Add your chicken to the brine, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Step 2: Remove the chicken from the brine and pat dry using a paper towel.
  • Step 3: Next, combine your onion flour, granulated garlic, salt and pepper into a shallow dish.
  • Step 4: In another shallow dish, beat the egg.
  • Step 5: Step 5: Add the bread crumbs to another shallow dish.
  • Step 6: With each piece, toss it into the flour, dip it into the egg and then coat it with the breadcrumbs. Transfer across onto a larger plate.
  • Step 7: Into a skillet, heat 1/4 cup of oil over medium-high heat. Cook about a third of your chicken in the skillet until it's golden brown on each side or until the chicken, is cooked through.
  • Step 8: Remove the chicken pieces and place them on a wire rack sitting inside a baking sheet to cool. Wipe the pan and repair the process again until you've cooked all your batches.
  • Step 9: Serve these straight away with some hot chips.
