Food Videos

I found a few sites for food videos. I like to watch these as recipes are being prepared in case there are some extra thoughts the chef wants to add that are not in the recipe. You do get the recipe along with the video so you don't have to write real fast to keep up with the chef. Plan to spend some time if you go to these sites as they are fun and food interesting. Here are the 2 places I enjoyed. My favorite chef--Chef John --puts some of his videos at The other site is Check them out and have fun.
Have you ever wondered how to make Chicken Nuggets? Well I have a recipe for you from FORFOOD by myamii. You may want to cut the recipe in half as it makes alot of nuggets.
Ingredients:2 boneless skinless Chicken Breasts (that’s 4 breast fillets)
1 teaspoon of Salt
1/2 teaspoon of Parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon of Oregano
1/4 teaspoon of Onion powder
1/4 teaspoon of Pepper
2 Eggs, beaten
1 Cup of Flour
about 1.5 Cups of Oil for frying (I used Sunflower seed oil)
1.Heat oil in a heavy-duty skillet (like a cast iron skillet) on medium-high heat while preparing the chicken nuggets
2.Cube chicken and place in a food processor. Blend chicken until it has all been taken apart and is a fine paste.
3.Remove to a bowl and add salt, parsley, oregano, onion powder, and pepper, and combine well.
4.Pour out flour on a plate and have your beaten eggs in a small bowl ready to work with.
5.Roll the chicken paste mixture into 34 ping-pong ball-sized balls (smaller than a golf ball). Then roll a “chicken ball” in flour, then in egg, and then in flour again.
6.Then, press the ball down to make a nugget. Set nuggets aside.
7.Sprinkle the hot oil with some flour and if it bubbles really quickly right away, your oil is ready for frying. Place as many nuggets as possible in the oil, and fry until the bottoms are golden, turn and fry until the other side is golden. Will take about 4-5 minutes per side. Remove to a towel-lined plate (to catch any excess oil).
Note: Taste after making one batch and make changes if needed.
Enjoy with dipping sauce or bbq sauce and fries.
I am in the process of gathering Christmas magazines for new recipes this year for different cookies. If you have a recipe to pass on, just send it on in comments.
