McDonald's Chicken McNuggets Recipe - How to Make McDonald's McNuggets at Home!!!

Recipe type: Chicken / Fast Foods

A couple of weeks ago one of our viewers requested that I decode the McDonalds Chicken McNuggets recipe. I took up the challenge, and here it is.
Ingredients
For the Coating Batter (enough for 8-12 chicken breasts)
  • 90g All purpose flour
  • 15ml Salt
  • 15ml Bicarbonate of soda
  • 125g Yellow maize meal
  • 90g Corn starch
  • 20ml White pepper
  • 10ml Onion powder
  • 5ml Garlic powder
  • 5ml Ground cumin
  • 5ml Ground coriander seed
  • 5ml Cayenne pepper
  • 2.5ml Dried oregano
  • 2.5ml Dried basil
  • 2.5ml Dried rosemary
  • 2.5ml Dried Thyme
  • 450ml Water
Instructions
  1. Unlike KFC, where the spicy flavor is cured into the chicken, with McNuggets, the flavor is all in the coating, so that's where we're starting.
  2. Measure out the yellow maize meal, the cornstarch and the all purpose flour.
  3. For the seasoning, combine the white pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, ground cumin, ground coriander seed, cayenne pepper, dried oregano, dried basil, dried rosemary and dried thyme. Grind these to powder in you spice grinder.
  4. Place all of the aforementioned into a large mixing bowl and mix briefly to combine.
  5. Pour in the water and whisk until smooth.
  6. Put this aside for 30 minutes to autolyse.
  7. After 30 minutes, even the smallest particles in the liquid will be saturated, and as a result the batter will have thickened considerably, and will coat the back of a spoon.
  8. The real McNuggets uses coarsely ground chicken reconstituted with the aid of emulsifiers and high pressure extruders. Since this does not affect the taste, we're not going to run out and buy bags of phosphates and fancy industrial extruders.
  9. Trim away the fillet from the chicken breasts.
  10. Square off the ends of the breasts and slice the remaining breasts into slices 5mm or a 5th of an inch thick.
  11. Place any trimmings in your refrigerator for other recipes.
  12. Half fill a wok or pan with oil and heat this to 170c or 340f.
  13. Once again, we don't have fancy conveyer belt coating machines, so to coat the chicken bits, pick a piece up with a skewer, dip it in the batter and drop it into the oil.
  14. The chicken cooks within 60 seconds, so you will only fry about 6 or 7 pieces at a time.
  15. Use a slotted spoon to remove them from the oil, and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  16. And there it is.... a mountain of McNuggets just waiting to be enjoyed.

These bacon, peppadew and feta kebabs are out of this world. Slightly sweet, slightly hot and tangy, these kebabs will have your guests lining up for more.
Ingredients
For 4 Kebabs
  • 8 Rashers streaky bacon
  • 16 Peppadews (pickled piquant peppers)
  • 50g Feta cheese

  3. Stuff a cube of feta into each peppadew until each one is filled to the brim.
  4. Place s strip of bacon across the opening of a peppadew and wrap it around the peppadew to enclose the feta cheese. Continue until all of the bundles are formed.
  5. To make up the kebabs, drill the skewers through the peppadew bundles using a twisting motion. If you try to push them through, you will end up squeezing the cheese out.
  6. Once you have four bundles on the skewer, straighten the bundles out to align the edges.
  7. Heat a large pan over medium high heat and add a tablespoon of butter.
  8. Add the kebabs to the pan with the bacon in contact with the pan.
  9. Fry this for 3 minutes, then turn the kebabs over to the other bacon side. Fry this for a further 3 minutes.
  10. Turn the kebabs onto one edge and fry this for 60 seconds.
  11. Turn them to the other edge and fry for another 60 seconds.
  12. Remove the kebabs from the oven and serve immediately with the accompaniments of your choice.
  13. These little gems can also be grilled quite successfully on your barbecue using a skillet or riffle pan.

How to Make Sherry Pearls - Simple Molecular Gastronomy - Sherry Caviar
Author: 
Recipe type: Modernist Cuisine - Molecular Gastronomy
 
Just a few episodes back we used agar agar to make a wonderful garnish of cilantro spaghetti. Today we're going to use sherry and agar agar to make sherry pearls, or sherry caviar. Before we start, you will need a large syringe, and you will also need to place about 500ml of cooking oil in your freezer for 30 minutes to get well chilled. This technique also falls into the category of molecular gastronomy, and is the simplest form of spherification.
Ingredients
  • 200ml Sherry
  • 2.5ml Agar Agar
  • 500ml Very cold oil for setting
Instructions
  1. Pour 200ml of your favorite sherry into a small saucepan.
  2. Add 2.5ml of agar agar to the sherry.
  3. Place the pan over medium heat and bring this to boil, stirring frequently.
  4. Lower the heat and simmer the mixture for 60 seconds.
  5. Remove the pot from the heat, and remove the chilled oil from the freezer.
  6. Use your syringe to suck up a load of the sherry mixture.
  7. Drizzle droplets of the sherry over the surface of the oil. You will see them set into tiny spheres almost immediately.
  8. Place a filter over a jug and pour the oil and sherry pearls into the filter.
  9. The oil will pass through leaving the pearls in the filter and you're done.
  10. (You can rinse the pearls briefly using cold water, but I have never found this necessary)

  2. You will need large brown mushrooms, or porcini mushrooms as the have a well defined, robust flavor.
  3. Cut the mushrooms into slices 12mm or a half inch thick.
  4. Place the mushroom slices in a large non-reactive pan and pour the marinade mixture over the mushrooms.
  5. Use a basting brush to pick up marinade from the pan and brush this over any spots you may have missed.
  6. Cover the pan with cling-wrap and place this in your refrigerator overnight.
  7. The following day, transfer the mushroom slices to a rack in another pan.

In the previous episode we made panko crumbs. Now we're going to use these to make amazingly crispy deep-fried chicken wings.
Ingredients
  • 6 Whole chicken wings
  • 125ml All-purpose flour
  • 15ml Salt
  • 15ml Cayenne pepper
  • 1 Batch Panko crumbs
Instructions
  1. To start, combine the all-purpose flour, salt and cayenne pepper. Place this in a container with a lid.
  2. Trim away the wing tips from the chicken wings and slice through the center joint of each wing, giving you a dozen winglets.
  3. Drop the winglets into the flour, put the lid on and shake them around to coat. Allow the winglets to stand in the flour for 10 minutes.
  4. For the panko coating, place the panko crumbs in a bowl, and whisk 2 eggs in another bowl.
  5. Before starting, spread a layer of panko crumbs over a large platter. This is where the coated wings will set and the layer of crumbs prevents the coating from sticking to the platter and getting damaged.
  6. Dip the winglets in the egg to wet all of the flour coating.
  7. Transfer the winglet to the panko crumbs to get a good solid coating all over.
  8. Transfer the winglet to the platter to set. Continue with the remaining winglets.
  9. Allow the panko coating to set for 10 minutes.
  10. Half fill a large pan with oil and heat this to 180c or 350f. Carefully drop the wings into the oil and fry them for 5 to 6 minutes, turning halfway through.
  11. Remove the wings from the oil using a slotted spoon and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  12. And there we have it, a batch of amazingly crisp panko chicken wings.

Total time: 
Serves: 4
 
One of my favorite ingredients are snails, however every restaurant seems to the same boring renditions over and over. This recipe gives a new flavor, texture and presentation to what has become an otherwise boring and mundane dish.
Ingredients
  • 24 Escargot
  • 30g Butter
  • 5ml Granulated garlic
  • 2.5ml Chilli flakes
  • 60ml Sour cream
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 4 Slices square loaf white bread
Instructions
  1. To start, we need to make the curly melba triangles. For this you need regular square loaf white bread.
  2. Working with 2 slices at a time, toast the slices in your toaster until they are well browned, then slice of the edges. Keep the edges on one side.
  3. Use your bread knife to cut the 2 crispy sides apart. The center is very soft and the knife will literally slide through.
  4. Turn each piece over and rub the inside surface on the work surface. The moisture in the untoasted side will cause the excess bread to ball up and rub away onto the counter, leaving you with a beautifully thin wafer of toast.
  5. Cut the wafers from corner to corner to make the triangles.
  6. Repeat this until all of the slices are processed.
  7. Place the melba triangles with the untoasted side facing upward onto a large baking sheet.
  8. Toast the melba in a preheated oven at 200c or 400f for about 90 seconds until the triangles have browned slightly and curled up.
  9. Clear the baking sheet and place any remaining triangles on the sheet along with the toast edges.
  10. Pop the sheet back in the oven for 90 seconds.
  11. Remove this from the oven and put the melba and bread batons aside.
  12. Now onto the snails.... remove the snails from the can and drain them in colander. Rinse the snails thoroughly under running water for 5 full minutes. This removes the terrible rancid brine from the snails.
  13. Measure out the dried chilli flakes, garlic granules, cultured sour cream and butter.
  14. Heat a pan over medium heat and add the butter.
  15. Once the butter is bubbling pour in the snails. Fry the snails gently for 2 minutes.
  16. Add the garlic granules and chilli flakes and continue to fry for a further 60 seconds.
  17. Turn off the gas or remove the pan from the heat and stir in the sour cream.
  18. To serve the escargot, place 3 triangles of melba on each serving plate.
  19. Top each of these with 2 snails.
  20. Dress each triangle with 2 toast batons and serve immediately.

Recipe type: Potatoes / Fast Food
Cuisine: American

Ingredients
  • 4 Medium potatoes
  • 60ml White vinegar
  • 60ml Corn starch
  • 60ml Rice flour
  • 5ml Ground white pepper

  2. Place the grated potato in a mixing bowl and add the vinegar. Mix this in briefly and allow the potato to stand for a couple of minutes.

  4. Drain the shredded potato and rinse it thoroughly under cold running water. Squeeze most of the excess water from the potato and return it to the mixing bowl.
  5. Pour in the cornstarch and rice flour a little at a time, mixing it in thoroughly after each addition.
  6. Pour in the ground white pepper, garlic flakes and salt and mix these in thoroughly.
  7. Pour the potato out into an 8 inch or 20cm square baking tin.
  8. Spread the mixture out evenly compressing it and flattening it as you go.
  9. Use the back of a spoon to smooth out the surface.
  10. Transfer the pan to your refrigerator for 60 minutes. This chills the mixture while the flour autolyses.
  11. After 60 minutes transfer the pan to your freezer for 30 minutes.
  12. Remove the pan from the freezer and turn the potato out onto a chopping board.
  13. Use a sharp knife to cut the potato into 9 equal squares. You can leave them as squares, or cut each one in half diagonally to make triangles.
  14. Fill a large pan with oil to a depth of a half inch and heat this to 180c or 350f.
  15. Carefully drop the hash browns into oil and fry them for 15 to 20 minutes turning every few minutes to ensure even coloring.
  16. Remove the hash browns from the oil using a slotted spoon and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.

Super-Crispy Deep-Fried Onion Rings. How to Make Perfect Fried Onion Rings!!!
Author: 
Recipe type: Vegetables / Deep-fried
 
Onion rings can be the best or worst accompaniment for burgers or grills. Unfortunately more often than not battered onion rings turn out as oil soaked UFO's that repeat on you for days afterwards. This recipe gives the foolproof solution, and the perfectly crispy, tasty and aromatic onion rings ever.... with much less oil residue.
Ingredients
  • 1 Large onion
  • 250ml Full-cream milk
  • 45ml Cornflour
  • Oil for frying
For the Coating
  • 250ml All purpose flour
  • 10ml Garlic powder
  • 5ml Hot smoked paprika
  • 5ml Salt
  • 2.5ml Hot English Mustard powder
  • 2.5ml Ground white pepper
Instructions
  1. Top and tail and peel the onions and slice them into half inch thick rings. Carefully remove the first three rings from each round. You can use the inner rings for salads or soups.
  2. For the coating, combine the all purpose flour, garlic powder, hot smoked paprika, salt, hot English mustard powder and ground white pepper.
  3. In a jug, whisk together the cornflour and milk and pour this into a dish.
  4. Dip each onion ring into the milk solution then dredge it in the flour mixture. Transfer the rings to a platter.
  5. Once the first coating is complete, sprinkle some of the flour mixture over a large platter. This is where the coated onions will set, and the layer of flour prevents the coating from sticking to the platter and getting damaged.
  6. Dip each ring in the milk solution again, then into the flour to get a good solid coating. Transfer the coated rings to the platter. Allow the coated onions to set for 20 minutes.
  7. Fill a large pan with oil to a depth of 1 inch and heat this to 180c or 350f.
  8. Carefully drop the rings into the oil and fry them for 5 to 6 minutes turning halfway through.
  9. Remove the rings from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  10. Serve the onion rings immediately, or keep them warm in your oven at 70c or 158f until required.

How to Make Authentic Falafel - Crispy Fried Garbanzo Bean/Chickpea Fritter Recipe!!!
Author: 
Recipe type: Vegan / Vegetarian
Cuisine: Middle Eastern / Mediterranean
 
In our previous 2 episodes we covered tahini paste and hummus. Today we're making falafel with tahini sauce and hummus.
Ingredients
  • 450g Dry chickpeas / garbanzo beans
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 60ml Parsley
  • 5 Cloves garlic, chopped
  • 25ml All-purpose flour
  • 7.5ml Salt
  • 10ml Ground cumin
  • 5ml Ground coriander
  • 2.5ml Fine black pepper
  • 2.5ml Cayenne pepper
  • 1.25ml Ground cardamom
  • Oil for frying
  • Tahini paste and olive oil to thin
  • Hummus
Instructions
  1. Place the chickpeas in a large bowl and cover with twice the depth of water. You cannot use canned chickpeas, the recipe will fail. This recipe can be challenging and as a result, I have included a troubleshooting addendum below. Be sure to read this before starting.
  2. Cover the bowl with cling-wrap and allow this to stand overnight.
  3. The following day, drain the chickpeas and rinse them thoroughly.
  4. Transfer the chickpeas to your food processor along with the chopped onion, parsley, garlic, flour, salt, ground cumin, ground coriander, pepper, cayenne and cardamom.
  5. Process the mixture until it resembles couscous. Place it in a bowl, cover with cling-wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  6. To form the falafel, use a 30ml measuring scoop. Compress the mixture into the scoop and shake the molded shape out into your hand. Gently shape it into a ball and transfer this to a platter.
  7. To make sesame coated falafel, roll the formed ball in sesame seeds scattered across a platter.
  8. Continue until all of the balls are formed.
  9. Half fill a large pan with oil and heat this over medium heat to 160c or 320f.
  10. Carefully drop the falafel into the oil and fry for 2 to 3 minutes per side until crispy and golden.
  11. Remove the falafel from the oil and drain and drain on kitchen paper.
  12. Serve the falafel on a bed of hummus. Thin the sesame paste with extra olive oil and pour this over the falafel. Garnish the plate with fresh coriander and serve immediately.
Troubleshooting
  1. If the balls will not hold together:
  2. ) Your chickpeas are too old
  3. ) The mixture has not been processed fine enough
To fix this
  1. ) Return the mixture to your processor and process until it resemble couscous
  2. ) If it still does not hold together, add 2-3 tablespoons of flour and 1-2 eggs and mix this into the mixture thoroughly

  1. Finely chop the red pepper and garlic chives. Grate the rind of one lemon and measure out the mayonnaise. Cut 18 to 20 x 5cm or 2 inch lengths of cucumber and use a apple corer to remove the centers from these.
  2. Place the tuna in a jug and add the lemon zest, peppers, chives and mayonnaise.
  3. To mix the gelatin, pour 225ml of hot water into a small jug and add the powdered gelatin. Stir this for a minute or 2 until it is totally dissolved. Pour this into a larger jug and top it up with cold water to a total of 500ml.
  4. Stir to combine, then pour this into the jug containing the main ingredients. Stir this until everything is combined and the mayonnaise has totally dissolved then put this aside.
  5. Use the back of a spoon to put a coating of butter onto a baking sheet or pan. Press the cucumbers into the butter.
  6. Place the baking sheet or pan on top of an ice block or over another large pan filled with ice. This sets the butter hard and totally seals the bases of the cucumbers. Allow this to set for 5 minutes.
  7. Fill the cucumbers with the terrine mixture. Don't be too concerned with spillage as this will simply wipe away once the gelatin has set. Place these in your refrigerator.
  8. Any leftover filling can be molded in ramekins.
  9. After an hour or so the terrine will have set. This timing depends largely on the temperature of your refrigerator. Remove them from the fridge and pull the cucumbers free from the butter. Wipe off any spillage from the edges.
  10. Use a razor sharp knife to slice wafer thin slices from each end of the cucumber pieces to neaten up the ends. Slice the cucumber pieces at an angle and you're done.
  11. To unmold the ramekins simply run a thin blade round the edge of the ramekins and pop them out onto the plate.
