Robert C. Baker, the inventor of the “chicken nugget,” originally made their iconic shape by slicing the breast into pieces that could be fried without the breading falling off. According to historians, the idea to call them nuggets comes from the term miners used for gold found in riverbeds. As the story goes, Baker saw the golden-brown color the chicken chunks had when placed in the fryer, and dubbed them “nuggets of deliciousness”!
While there’s no frying involved in this recipe, these flour-free chicken nuggets have the same crunch and flavor with a healthy twist!
