Baked Turkey Nuggets

Hoje para Jantar

These turkey nuggets are healthier than any store-bought version or what you will find at a fast food restaurant. The turkey is coated in crushed crackers, which gives them a nice crispness. A little bit of dried garlic adds a ton of flavor to the dish. These make a great meal for the little ones, though you'll be hard pressed not to enjoy them yourself as well. They are delicious dipped in ketchup, barbecue sauce, or some honey mustard.


  • 2 turkey steaks
  • milk
  • 1/2 lemon juice
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 50 grams water (and salt)


  1. Begin by cutting the steaks into smaller pieces, about 2 fingers wide. Put them in a bowl and cover them with milk. Season with pepper, crushed garlic and salt (little salt because the crackers are already salted). Mix well and let marinate.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200ºC.
  3. Crush the crackers in the food processor until they are crumbs.
  4. Remove the turkey pieces from the marinade and roll them in the grated crackers. Put them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes, until the nuggets are cooked and the crust is golden.
  6. Serve with salad, rice or stewed beans.
