3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
4 tsp cornstarch

oil(450˚ smoke point)

evenly thinned.

-Sprinkle with cornstarch and oil turn to mix chicken, place in glass
bowl (or ziplock bag*) and keep in fridge for 20 minutes to 24 hours.

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place 2 Tablespoons oil in pan and put
in oven to melt oil and preheat.
-Remove chicken from fridge and add in egg yolk mix.

Is there a way to adapt this so it's also egg-free? My son loved nuggets, but I'm not sure how to make my own without using eggs...
