This recipe is from Nigella Lawson's Feast and is wickedly delicious.
Please take my word for it and marinade in the buttermilk for 2 full days then pan fry them. They are so much better this way rather than baking in the oven.
Ritzy Chicken Nuggets by Nigella
2 -3chicken breasts
275mls/1/2 pint buttermilk
2-3 Tablespoons oil (if you are frying the nuggets)
150gms/5 oz Ritz cracker crumbs or any salted cheesy snack biscuits or crackers will do
Place the one of the chicken breasts into a freezer bag and bash with a rolling pin until the chicken is quite thin.
Take it out and slice into about 6 to 8 slices.
Repeat with the other chicken breast. This is easiest done with scissors.
Put the slices into a freezer bag with the buttermilk and leave in the refrigerator to marinade for up to 2 days.
When you are ready to cook them, heat the oil in a large frying pan.
Tip the cracker crumbs into a wide shallow bowl, and then shake off the excess buttermilk from the nuggets and dip them in the crumbs. Coat them well before lying gently in the hot oil, and cooking for about 2 minutes or so a side until they are golden brown. Transfer to a kitchen towel on a plate to blot the excess oil.
They can be frozen once marinated and crumbed.
Allow a little more time if cooking from frozen.
The buttermilk really seems to make a difference. These are truly delicious
The chilli sauce? I hear you ask. Oh that's easy. I got it in a bottle ......well it was a junkie sort of meal.
