  • 1 whole chicken breast cut into 1 ½ inch pieces

  • Place all purpose flour and salt in a large ziploc bag, set aside.
  • Place breadcrumbs in another large ziploc bag and set aside.
  • Mix chicken pieces with cajun seasoning, transfer them into the all purpose flour bag, close the bag and shake well so they are coated.
  • Transfer the chicken pieces to the bowl with eggs and using a fork, turn the around so they are coated with eggs.
  • Transfer the chicken nuggets to the breadcrumbs bag, close the bag and shake very well until they are completely coated with breadcrumbs.
