Take a kilo of chicken fillet. You can and other meat, but this will be easier. Yes, and in McDonald's the most popular dish from chicken - just nagetsy. Recipes with photos will help you reproduce the same taste at home using a frying pan and oven. In addition to meat, spices will be needed - half a teaspoon of ground nutmeg, several black peppercorns, large sea salt, six tablespoons of cornstarch and three eggs.And also breading (crackers) and oil for frying. First cut the fillet portionwise - in size they should be the same. Spices and salt grind in a coffee grinder in powder and add to the starch. Eggs beat up and pour into the mixture three tablespoons of water. Pour the lezon into a large plate. Nuggets (the recipe assumes that you can take different types of breading, even crushed almonds) into the egg mixture, then let it drain and lower it into biscuits. Prepare the deep-fryer, warming it to the desired temperature (about one hundred and seventy or one hundred and eighty degrees) and lay there the breaded chicken pieces. They reach a golden color in about four to six minutes.Keep chicken nuggets longer (recipes with photossometimes they depict excessively roasted meat, but it is not so tasty in overdried form) does not make sense. Due to the breading in the starch, a crusty crust is provided. A short cooking time allows the meat to remain juicy. Ready nagetsy put on napkins or paper towels, so that excess fat absorbed into the paper. Although, in principle, it will not be too much. It is good to serve ketchup or a special garlic sauce for such meat. To prepare the latter you need to bake garlic with thyme and olive oil, grind into a slurry and mix with natural yoghurt.

First, marinate the fillet in natural yogurt (unsweetened!) With salt and black pepper. You can keep the meat in this marinade from one hour to a whole night. Breaded bread is prepared from salted crackers, crushed into a crumb with a rolling pin, with the addition of a hundred grams of grated cheese. Crumble the chicken in breading, lay it on parchment and bake for twenty minutes.
