Chicken Nuggets

Skinless, boneless chicken breasts for the win.  I’m not thrilled with the batter.  It was OK but I wanted it to be better.  It’s flour and cornstarch with an egg and some water plus seasonings.  The dip wasn’t any better.  I tossed it together from mayo, mustard, a squirt of lemon juice, and honey.  Needs more research.

That said, there were no leftovers.

Fried Mushrooms

dsc_2221-1600x1200I had a few button mushrooms to use up and we haven’t had any of these for a long time.  They are batter dipped and then dredged in panko.  The batter is flour and water with a beaten egg and a teaspoon of baking powder, seasoned with ground red pepper and salt.

The dip is mostly ketchup with a squirt of bbq sauce and a tablespoon or so of sweet soy sauce.  An option would be to add a dollop of chili garlic paste.
