When I heard about a fast-food restaurant’s hot & spicy chicken nuggets, I first made these Spicy Chicken & Tofu Nuggets. I simply added spices to the Chicken & Tofu Nuggets to make them hot and spicy. I used Cayenne Pepper, but naturally you can use chilli of your choice.
About 20 nuggets
Chicken Mince 500g
Firm Tofu 400 to 500g
Garlic 1 clove *grated, 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder is OK
Salt 1 teaspoon
White Pepper 1/2 teaspoon
Cayenne Pepper 1/3 to 1/2 teaspoon *1/2 teaspoon is pretty HOT!
Oil to shallow fry *1cm deep would be enough
- Break down and mash Tofu, add other ingredients and make it into paste texture.
*Note: If you use ‘Momen’ Tofu or soft type Tofu, you must press-drain them very well to remove water as much as possible.
- Divide the mixture and make flat nuggets. Put some oil on your hands to work as the mixture is very sticky.
- Heat Oil to around 180C and fry the nuggets for 5 minutes or until nicely browned. Drain oil well on paper towel.
