How to Make:

  • First, make your batter. Whisk together the egg, water, flour, sesame seeds and water until smooth.
  • Dip each 1 inch piece of chicken breast into the batter. Be sure to coat it completely.
  • Cook each coated piece in preheated oil until they are no longer pink. This should take about 4-5 minutes.
  • Make the BBQ: Whisk together the sauce ingredients in a saucepan. Over medium heat, bring it all to a boil. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for 15 minutes.

Heating Your Oil:

  • Heat the cooking oil until 375 degrees. You can test it with a thermometer. If you don’t have a thermometer..stick the handle of a wooden spoon into the oil.  If it’s ready, the oil will bubble around the handle.

Storage: Store nuggets in a covered container in the refrigerator. You can also freeze them in a freezer safe, covered container/storage bag. They will be good for 3-4 months.

Keep leftover BBQ sauce in a covered jar/container in the refrigerator. Use it within a week.
