Homemade chicken nuggets

I found this recipe from pinterest a couple of days ago and had pinned it to my pinterest board, waiting for the right moment to try it.

When the tesco delivery guy came today to deliver the groceries that I've earlier ordered online, and had substituted 1 kg+ of chicken fillets instead of the 3 chicken breasts that I've ordered, I knew that I had to try this recipe.

So, after putting aside some for making other dishes, i've cubed the extras to make chicken nuggets, recipe as follows:

Chicken fillets, cut into bite size
Salt and pepper to taste
1 egg and some milk, beaten
Breadcrumbs and 1/4 - 1/2 cube of chicken granules

Add salt and pepper to the chicken fillets and coat with the flour.

Pick up the flour coated chicken and dunk into the egg/milk mixture then straight into the breadcrumbs mixture.

Coat with the breadcrumbs and put into a cookie sheet, in a single layer.

Bake at 180 degree celcius for 8 minutes on 1 side, turn, and continue baking for another 7 minutes.

Recipe adapted from here, with changes here and there. Based from the blog entry for this recipe, you can also make extra to freeze, but I didn't get to try that this time around as my kids loved the nuggets so much and ate lots of it.

Egg pizza

I made pizzas for dinner a few months back and had an extra, so I flash freeze the pizza (unbaked) and then wrap it with plastic wrap and label.

For breakfast, I took the pizza out of the freezer and unwrapped the plastic wrap. 

I placed it in a preheated oven @ 200 degree Celsius for 10 minutes to bake.  I then took it out of the oven, cracked a few eggs on top, sprinkled some salt and pepper and drizzled some olive oil on the eggs.

I then continue baking it for another 10 minutes.

*note: For large pizza, you will need to par-bake the dough first for a few minutes before spreading the pizza sauce and topping. However, if you are making regular sized pizza (8 - 9 inches in diameter), it is not necessary to par-bake the dough.

Meet baby Iman

It's been a while since I last posted.

Alhamdulillah, kami telah dikurniakan seorang lagi cahaya mata. Iman is now 2 months old, can't believe how fast time flies.

The kids are all super excited, and so are we :)

Ya Allah, semoga semua anak-anak kami menjadi anak-anak yang soleh dan solehah, Amin.
