How to Make Buttermilk Chicken Nugget's - Dee Dee's


  • 1Wash chicken nuggets and remove visible fat. Place chicken in salted water and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
  • 2Pat dry with paper towel. Pour buttermilk in shallow bowl.
  • 3Put skillet on medium high heat; add canola oil about 1 inch deep.
  • 4Dip each nugget in the buttermilk, making sure it is completely coated.
  • 5In a large ziploc bag, mix flour, salt, pepper and seasoning salt.
  • 6Place several nuggets in the bag of flour, shake to thoroughly coat all sides.
  • 7Shake each piece to remove loose flour.
  • 8Place chicken in the hot oil; being careful not to over crowd the pan.
  • 9Let chicken fry until just golden brown and crispy, then turn and let second side get golden brown, being careful when turning not to break the buttermilk crust.
  • 10Check to make sure heat is not too high and chicken does not brown to fast.
  • 11Turn pieces over once more and cook a few minutes longer until crust is crisped.
  • 12If crust on the sides of the breast is still soft and mushy, turn those pieces on their side in the oil for a minute or two so they can fry up crisp.
  • 13Place the nuggets on paper-towel lined plate to drain excess oil.
