Ingredients for Chicken Nuggets:

°1 1/2 pounds chicken breasts (3 large)

°2 large eggs

°1/3 cup mayonnaise

°1/3 cup all-purpose flour, cornstarch, or gluten-free potato starch

°4 ounces mozzarella (1 1/3 cups grated)

°1 1/2 tsp chopped fresh dill

°1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste

°1/8 teaspoon black pepper

°2 tablespoons very light olive oil, for frying (or any high-heat cooking oil)

*Ingredients for garlic aioli (optional)

°1/3 cup mayonnaise

°1 pressed garlic clove

°1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice

°1/4 teaspoon salt

°1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Step-by-step instructions:

  1. Utilizing a keen-edged knife, slice the chicken into 1/3-inch thick pieces and transfer them to a capacious mixing bowl. Tip: If the chicken breasts are slightly frozen, it will facilitate the chopping process.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the remaining batter ingredients: 2 eggs, 1/3 cup of mayonnaise, 1/3 cup of flour, 1 1/3 cups of shredded mozzarella, 1 1/2 tablespoons of dill, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 8 teaspoons of black pepper, or season to your preference. Stir the ingredients until they are thoroughly integrated, then cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the mixture for a minimum of 2 hours or, ideally, overnight.
  3. Heat a generous nonstick skillet over medium heat and add 2 tablespoons of oil. Once the oil is sufficiently heated, add the chicken mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time. Slightly flatten the top of each donut with the back of a spatula and fry them uncovered for 3-4 minutes on the first side. Then, gently flip them and continue frying for an additional 3 minutes on the second side, or until the exterior achieves a luscious golden brown hue, and the chicken is thoroughly cooked. Repeat this process with the remaining donuts, adding more oil as required.
  4. Optional Aioli: If desired, prepare a delightful aioli by combining all the aioli ingredients in a small bowl or measuring cup and blend until the mixture attains a velvety smooth texture.
  5. Serve and savor the delectable chicken donuts with or without the aioli accompaniment. Enjoy the delightful flavors and the culinary masterpiece you’ve created!
