It’s all about the Chicken – Chicken Fingers and Chicken Nuggets

September 2, 2014 at 5:45 AM | Posted in It's All About the Chicken | Leave a comment

It’s two of the favorite ways to have Chicken; Chicken Fingers and Chicken Nuggets

 

 

Chicken fingers

Chicken fingers

Chicken Fingers

 
Chicken fingers, also known as chicken tenders, chicken goujons, chicken strips or chicken fillets, are chicken meat prepared from the pectoralis minor muscles of the animal. These strips of white meat are located on either side of the breastbone, under the breast meat (pectoralis major).

Chicken fingers are prepared by dipping chicken meat in a breading mixture and then deep-frying them, in a manner similar to the preparation of Schnitzel.

 

 

In the Northeastern United States, chicken fingers served in Chinese restaurants are often made with an egg batter and have a smooth texture. They are commonly served either as an appetizer or as a main dish.

In other recipes, the breading mixture for chicken fingers can lack eggs and the texture of the dish itself can often be rather coarse. This version is often served alongside various dipping sauces. The dipping sauces can include: ketchup, blue cheese dressing, ranch dressing, barbecue sauce, honey mustard, Buffalo wing sauce, butter and garlic, plum sauce, curry mayonnaise, or sweet and sour sauce. Chicken fingers of this kind are often served in a basket with French fries, served on a garden salad, or in a sandwich, such as a wrap or on a bun.

Chicken fingers are offered by various fast food chains such as Chick-fil-A, Zaxby’s, Raising Cane’s, Guthrie’s, Dairy Queen, KFC, Spatola Restaurant, McDonald’s “Chicken Select Strips” and Church’s Chicken “Tender Strips”. They are also a common offering on children’s menus in American restaurants.

Chicken Nuggets

 
A chicken nugget is a chicken product made from either meat slurry or chicken breasts cut to shape, breaded or battered, then deep-fried or baked. Fast food restaurants typically fry their nuggets in vegetable oil, such as coconut oil.

The chicken nugget was invented in the 1950s by Robert C. Baker, a food science professor at Cornell University, and published as unpatented academic work. Dr. Baker’s innovations made it possible to form chicken nuggets in any shape. McDonald’s recipe for Chicken McNuggets was created on commission from McDonald’s by Tyson Foods in 1979 and the product was sold beginning in 1980.

Some fast food restaurants have launched vegetarian alternatives. McDonald’s served Garden McNuggets made of beans, Irish fast food chain R. Haecker’s offers a veggie nugget meal made with beans and cabbage, and Swedish fast food restaurant Max Hamburgare offers a dish containing nuggets made of falafel.
The largest recorded chicken nugget weighed 51.1 pounds (23.2 kg) and was 3.25 feet (0.99 m) long and 2 feet (0.61 m) wide and was created by Empire Kosher. It was unveiled at Kosherfest in Secaucus, New Jersey on October 29, 2013.
