Brooklyn Artisanal Small-Batch Chicken Nuggets

Now that Blue Ribbon's awesome fried chicken is available in Brooklyn, is has been deemed an acceptable substitute for the bane of gourmand parents the borough over: the chicken nugget.

Probably because it doesn't involve brining.

Meanwhile, back in Manhattan, the contest between David Chang's Noodle Bar fried chicken and Thomas Keller's ad hoc buttermilk fried chicken for toddler hearts and palates has resulted in the sharpest uptown/downtown rift since the opening of the Blue School.

And while the battle rages, Chick-Fil-A bides its time from the ID-required comfort of NYU's food court.

"Artisanal" and "nugget" used in the same sentence? Really?

Naked Nuggets, made by Bruce & Eric Bromberg of Blue Ribbon Restaurants, are all-natural grilled chicken nuggets! They're breading-free, gluten-free, and allergen-free. They seem to be your answer! : )


I highly recommend the recipe from the folks at the now defunct Cookie magazine. It's called Time for Dinner: Strategies, Inspiration, and Recipes for Family Meals Every Night of the Week by Pilar Guzmán, Jenny Rosenstrach, and Alanna Stang. The recipe is for chicken "nuggets" using the technique of flattening a chicken breast, cutting into "shapes" and coating it in flour, egg and crushed cornflakes. Then fry in olive oil. They come out amazing.

I just try to remember that chicken nuggets are food, not poison. They're not the most nutritious food out there, but they won't actually kill you.

Chik-Fil-A nuggets are the best, though. And their waffle fries dipped in mayo are also awesome.

Naked Chicken Nuggets? Wow, just eat some grilled chicken.
