Surprise your kids, or satisfy your inner child, with this fun, healthy recipe for Chicken Nuggets with Homemade Ketchup. These are not your greasy questionably sourced fast food joint chicken nuggets. Made with sliced chicken breast, these chicken nuggets are coated in a crushed cornflake breading and then fried until in olive oil in a skillet. The homemade ketchup is naturally sweetened with pear and orange juice. If you prepare the ketchup ahead of time, this is a fun and fast meal that the whole family will love.

Ingredients

  • 1 kilogram tomatoes (finely chopped)
  • ground ginger
  • 1 garlic clove (finely chopped)
  • 50 milliliters pear juice

We enjoyed everything about this recipe! I had never made my own catsup. I was glad to see it used fruit juices and they worked well with the other ingredients. The breading on the chicken had the perfect crunch and the meat was tender and juicy. This is an excellent recipe and I’ll make batches of this ketchup for other uses.
