    Step 1

    Prep 2 skinless chicken breast. Cut into small chunks. Use 3 tbsp of all purpose flour to glued the dough or you can use wheat germ. well the pic shows too much flour doesnt it :) sorry for that

    Grated 1 carrot, 1/2 cup of chunkie celery leaves (variations may vary), 1 garlic clove (grated), 1 egg, salt and pepper, garlic powder (to taste). You also may add some grated parmesan.

    Step 3

    Combine all of the ingredient in a prepared bowl. Taste test and divide the dough into 2, flattened and put it in a plastic wrap. I usually put them in a fridge for at least 30 mnts before steam them.

    Step 4

    Put the nugget dough in a steamer. Steam it for at least 30-40 mnts on medium. When it is done, you can put it in a freezer for future used. It can stand for 1 month in the freezer

    Cut the dough into pieces and coated with breadcrumbs. Cook in preheated pan and hot oil (deep fried is the best though) for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

    Serve while it is warm with your favourite dipping sauce :) enjoy!
