Chicken Nuggets

Chicken nuggets are one of the most successful poultry products introduced in the 1980s in North America. Originally, the product was prepared from a single piece of slightly marinated breast meat that was battered and breaded. Later, nuggets made from trimmings, dark meat, skin, mechanically deboned meat, and their combinations started to appear on the market. To prepare the products the meat pieces are marinated and mixed with a brine solution (containing salt and flavorings) until all the solution is absorbed by the meat. The meat is then put through a forming machine that creates the desired product shape, followed by battering and breading and deep fat frying. Frying is done after forming the product to preserve the product shape and to provide the typical crispy texture of the breading.
