My kids love chicken nuggets and I like to make them from scratch. That way, I know what's in them.

Cut chicken breast in about 2cm thick strips and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Place flour on a plate, eggs on a second and breadcrumbs on a third plate.
Heat enough butter and oil to generously cover the bottom of a large frying pan and bring to a medium heat. Dredge chicken strips in flour, shake off excess, dip into the egg and coat with breadcrumbs. Fry in batches for about 5 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper to soak up any excess oil. Serve hot.
