Happy meals at home just got easier with this quick and easy recipe for homemade crispy chicken nuggets. 




  • Place chicken in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper, add yogurt, and toss until coated. Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes (or refrigerate, covered, up to 2 hours).

  • Place panko in a shallow bowl. Using a fork, toss a few chicken pieces at a time in panko to coat; pat to adhere.

  • Pour enough oil in a large straight-sided skillet to reach 1/2 inch up the sides. Heat over medium-high; oil will be ready when a panko crumb sizzles when tossed in. Working in batches, cook chicken, turning halfway through with tongs, until golden brown and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per batch.

  • Transfer to a wire-rack-lined baking sheet; season with salt. (Remove and discard any bits of coating in cooking oil with a slotted spoon before cooking remaining batches.)
