Kids – See if you have what it takes to become a Junior Chef!

Supervision Required.

Utensils Needed:

2 large bowls

Measuring cups

Large skillet

Baking sheet

Parchment paper

Oven mitts

Slotted spoon or tongs

Paper towel sheets


1 egg

¼ cup duck sauce

¼ cup flour

3 to 4 chicken breasts, cubed

1 cup bread crumbs

Vegetable oil, for frying

Ketchup and/or duck sauce for dipping (optional)

Let’s Get Started!

  1. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine egg, duck sauce, and flour. Place bread crumbs into a second bowl.
  3. Dip chicken cubes into egg mixture until well coated. Then roll dip in the bread crumbs. Place on baking sheet.
  4. Prepare to fry the nuggets. Place the skillet on the stove. Add a layer of oil.
  5. Ask an adult to heat the oil until it sizzles when the chicken is added.
  6. Ask an adult to use the slotted spoon or the tongs to add a few coated chicken nuggets to the hot oil. Cook the chicken nuggets for about 3 minutes or until the bottom of the nuggets have turned golden brown. Then ask the adult to carefully turn the nuggets over and let them brown on the other side for about 3 minutes.
  7. Ask the adult to use the slotted spoon or tongs remove the chicken nuggets from the skillet. Place them onto paper towels to drain off the excess oil. Ask the adult to continue to fry the nuggets in small batches until all the chicken nuggets have been fried.
  8. Serve with ketchup or duck sauce – because dipping is FUN! (optional)

 Serves 4!  

Record Breaker!   

Empire Kosher Poultry set the world record in 2013 for making and cooking the largest chicken nugget, which was 3.3 feet long and weighed 51.1 pounds!

Before the invention of erasers, writers used bread crumbs to erase mistakes on their papers!

Prayer Pointers From

Buzz the Brachos Bee

One shouldn’t say, “I don’t want to eat meat and milk together.” Instead, one should say, “I want to, but Hashem does not allow it, and I want to do the mitzvot of Hashem.” (Torat Kohanim, Parashat Kedoshim)
