Chicken Foot Ball Nuggets



About: A Software Engineer. I love learning new things. Hooked up with Instructables. It is the biggest find I ever made. :D Cooking and Crochet are my passion. I love to learn different techniques and cuisines.

I was just wondering what I shall make for Tailgate Contest.

Just for fun I thought of a rugby concept. I wanted a savory dish and that is how I ended up making the chicken nuggets seasoned with oregano. As a dip I have made a Garlic based white sauce.

I am sure this would be a great recipe for a Tail Gate party. It is quite simple to make and easy to serve.

Hope you like it.

Step 2: Shredded Chicken

Here I am making minced chicken from the scratch. If you are using store bought ones kindly ignore this step.

Pressure cook the chicken for one whistle. Shred the chicken.

Step 3: Grind

In a mixer/Food processor, add the shredded chicken, garlic, salt, pepper and ginger. Add chicken stock. Grind them together.

Step 4: Potatoes

Transfer it to a bowl and add in the mashed potatoes. Add dried Oregano for seasoning and lime juice.

The mix should be of the consistency that you press it together, it should hold shape. Shape them to a foot ball shape with your fingers.

Step 5: Powder Oats

Take some oats and powder it to a coarse texture. It shouldn't be too fine like Oats flour.

Step 6: Ready to Fry!

Beat an egg. Add pepper and salt to it.

Dip the nuggets in egg and let the excess egg flow off down. Coat it with oats. Keep it ready for frying.

Step 7: Fry

Heat the oil. When the Oil is hot add in the nuggets for deep frying. When one side has turned golden brown, turn over and fry the other side.

Step 8: Garlic Dip

Melt Butter and saute Garlic in it. Add the milk, Chicken stock and corn flour.

Add pepper and salt. Seep stirring at low heat till it forms a sauce texture.

You can even use Garlic based Mayonnaise dip.

Step 9: Lines

With the help of the back of the spoon line the sauce over the nuggets as you find on a football.
