  • 1 1/2 lbs. boneless chicken breast sliced into strips
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups bread crumbs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups cooking oil


  • Rub salt all over the chicken.
  • Arrange the chicken in resealable bags. Vacuum seal using the water displacement method. (check this post to see how)
  • Sous Vide cook for 1 1/2 hours at 140F.
  • Slice the cooked chicken breasts into squares.
  • Place the each piece in a small oval cookie cutter and mold by pressing it using your thumb.
  • Heat oil in a pot.
  • Dredge each chicken nugget in flour then dip in beaten egg. Roll over breadcrumbs until coated.
  • Heat oil in a cooking pot.
  • Once the oil gets hot, quickly deep fry the nuggets in medium heat until the color turns golden brown. This will take around 2 minutes. Note: No need to fry the chicken longer as the inside is already pre-cooked.
  • Arrange the tender juicy chicken nuggets in a plate lined with paper towel.
  • Serve with your favorite dip. Share and enjoy!
