How To Make Crunchy Chicken Nuggets?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I am trying to do low carb AND gluten-free at the same time. Over on the low carb forums they tell me "use grated parmesan cheese as your breading." The problem with this is that there is no crunch like there is when you use white flour as the breading.

I want to achieve that CRUNCH when you bite into that delicious chicken nugget. Currently I am using half parm cheese and half white flour in my chicken nuggets recipe but I want to free myself of the gluten.

 

What can I use instead of the white flour as my breading that will have that nice CRUNCH when fried? Will rice flour work? I'm going to be using parm cheese too in order to lower carb count.

 

Thanks guys!

I think people use rice flour for frying. Maybe go to the main forum page and use the google function in the top right corner. Try " fried chicken" and " onion rings". If you use the " advanced search" you can choose to see the actual posts, I think that's easier. I know this has been talked about a lot. I try not to fry things so I don't remember.

I don't do much coating for meats, but I like to coat fresh caught sunfish, crappie, & walleye.  I use the gluten free all purpose baking mixes.  I think they work great.  Should work for any meat as well. I have used it to make salisbury steak & meatballs.  I like Arrowhead Mills brand.

Crushed up potato chips make a great coating for oven "fried" items.  Probably not so much when actually fried, though.  But I make oven "fried" baked breaded meats frequently, usually the breading I will use half parmesean and half breading (crushed up cereal,corn meal,rice flour,crushed chips) and I just brush the meat with egg to make it stick.  You could also probably get away with half parmesean, 1/4 almonds, and a flour and pulse it in the food processor until it is a good texture and bread it with that.  

 

I made gluten-free fried chicken fingers that were buttermilk marinated, dredged in seasoned gluten-free bisquick, and then dipped in buttermilk and double dredged.  It had an abundance of tasty crunchy breading, for me it was too much though.  And of course, not low carb, hehe.

 

If you are still eating gluten, panko is the bomb!  They make gluten-free versions but I just cannot pay that price >.>
