This is an experimental recipe to infuse bacon into a coating for pieces of fried chicken.
I Started witb 4 rashers of trimmed smoked back bacon - I put them in the food processor and chopped them until they had a fine texture similar to sausagemeat.
Next, I added an egg, 4 tablespoons of flour and about 6 tablespoons of milk and blended it again until fully mixed.
The result is a thickish, doughy paste. Not exactly beautiful in this state though.
I cut some chicken breasts into chunks and spooned over the bacon-batter mix, then stirred it together to coat the pieces.
I fried the pieces in vegetable oil for about 8 minutes on each side, until nicely browned
The bacon-battered chickent nuggets were delicious. The bacon adds just about the right level of seasoning to the chicken, so there is no need to add salt.
