Easy Gluten Free Baked Chicken Nuggets

250 Grams of Boneless Chicken Cubes marinated in 1/2 of a freshly squeezed lemon juice
3 Slices of Bread (I used gluten free bread-OPTIONAL)
1 Cold Egg
1/4 Cup of Corn Flour
1/4 Cup of Chickpea Flour

1/2 TSP of Oregano
1/2 TSP of Thyme
1 TSP of Paprika
1/4 TSP of Chilli Flakes
1/2 TSP of Cumin Powder
1/4 TSP of Garlic Powder
2 Bay Leaves
1 TSP of Ginger Paste
1 TSP of Sugar
1 TSP of Salt (Can be adjusted as per taste.)
1/4 TSP of Black Pepper Powder

Easy Gluten Free Baked Chicken Nuggets

Preheat the oven to 190-200 degree celcius/395 fahrenheit.
Flatten chicken breasts with a rolling pin or minced meat hammer. Cut the chicken into similar size for same cooking time. Marinate with ginger paste and lemon juice.


Blend bread slices with spices to achieve grainy crumb consistency. Toast the crumbs as this helps to evaporate the moisture and the final result turns out crisper.
Take three large bowls. Add flour in one, egg in second and spiced breadcrumbs and spices mixture in third.

Dip chicken in flour then egg and finally roll in spicy bread crumbs. Make sure to shake off the excess flour and egg coating.

Spread the chicken bites evenly on the baking sheet and cook for 15-20 minutes depending on the oven and heat. Rotate in between to let both the sides crisp up. Serve with sprinkling of smoked paprika and coriander leaves with the dip of your choice.

  1. I love trying recipes that are fool proof to deep fry recipes and these are one among the best and being as an Indian origin, I love samosas and I have tried their baked version and the taste that comes in bang on when it compared to fried ones

    1. I know!!! Deep fried food is ofcourse irresistible but once you try the much easier versions of the same dishes, the final outcome is lighter, fluffier and equally delicious. I still love fried chicken nuggets, but can’t eat as much because they feel heavy on the stomach and I feel full very quickly. Love..Shehnaz🤗💖💖

    1. Was that a compliment? Il take that as a tes..hahaha.. like how colours add vibrancy similarly spices add burst if tantalising flavours to a dish.. If you do try it out I hope it works with your palette as the quantity of spices is kept to medium.😃✨
