- Heat oil in a heavy-duty skillet (like a cast iron skillet) on medium-high heat while preparing the chicken nuggets – it should be ready to work with once half of your nuggets are ready to go in.
- Cube chicken and place in a food processor. Blend chicken until it has all been taken apart and is a fine paste. Remove to a bowl and add salt and garlic & herb seasoning, and combine well.
- Pour out flour on a plate and mix in paprika. Have your beaten eggs in a small bowl ready to work with.
- Roll the chicken paste mixture into 34 ping-pong ball-sized balls (smaller than a golf ball).
- Roll ball a “chicken ball” in flour mixture, then in egg, and then in flour mixture again. Then, press the ball down to make a nugget. Set nuggets aside.
- Once oil has reached 350°F it is ready for deep frying. Place as many nuggets as possible in the oil – nuggets should not be touching eachother, and fry until the bottoms are golden, turn and fry until the other side is golden. Will take about 4-5 minutes per side. Remove to a towel-lined plate (to catch any excess oil).
