Matzo Meal Chicken Nuggets with Honey Mustard
I was wandering through the international section of my local grocery store the other day when I happened upon this Matzo meal stuff. The picture of the breaded chicken caught my attention and a quick check for the ingredients on the back sold me when I saw there were only two : Wheat Flour and Water (both of which I could actually pronounce)
They have a Lemon Baked Chicken recipe on the back I used to do my nuggets. I think I used 2 chicken breasts (pounded at the butchers) and cut them into small pieces. Then I dipped them into some egg and then into the breading mixture:
3/4 cup Matzo Meal
1 1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp lemon zest (you could also squeeze lemon juice over the chicken)
Then I fried this in coconut oil in the skillet and it was delicious! I served it with some yummy honey mustard (found in the condiments aisle) and it was a success!
I’ve tried making breaded chicken many times and this was probably the best it’s ever come out. The breading actually stuck nicely to the chicken but it didn’t seem too thick, it was just right. Matzo meal is my new friend when it comes to breaded chicken.
