How to deep fry the Maggi
chicken-noodle nuggets.

A word of caution:

If the oil is too heated, the nuggets will turn brown sooner, but the inside will be moist and uncooked. So, please do exercise the above method when frying. I would advise you to deep fry a single nugget to learn how long and at what temperature the frying nuggets will take.

Heat a frying pan and pour in the oil.

Maintain a steady temperature and avoid overheating.

Once heated, gently drop a few nuggets at a time. Fry over medium heat until the nuggets are cooked through and the crumb turns golden brown. (Approximately 4-5 minutes)

Avoid using too many nuggets at a time while frying as it will tend to stick together.

If you use too little oil the nuggets will tend to break apart.

Place them over a kitchen towel to drain any excess oil.

And…finally, your crispy succulent golden brown chicken nugget is ready to be tasted!
