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.

What else are other moms making for Tasty Tuesday?

  1. Ooooh, I’ll have to check that out. Very cool! Love those simple ingredient lists. We so rarely fry things. I mean, like, it’s been years. The coconut oil is a good idea though, love that stuff. I think I’ll try these sometime soon.

  2. I wonder if these would freeze well. I like the idea of homemade convenience foods, and chicken nuggets would be well received by my kiddos.

    Also, how long does coconut oil keep for? I have a jar that I’ve had for a while and was wondering if I should be tossing it. I guess I’ll see what Google has to say about that…

    1. I wondered the same, about the freezing aspect but I haven’t tried it. I don’t see why it wouldn’t work though? If it is sealed properly. Coconot oil keeps well for a very long time and does not need refrigeration. It becomes liquid after about 76 degrees (F) and then solidifies any cooler than that. I’ve tried a few different brands and only like to use Dr. Lamar or Larimar something like that, Pure Coconut Oil. I’ve only seen it at the Whole Foods on w. 21st street. I use it A LOT!
