Our favorite fast food establishments have made staying at home a little more enjoyable, more bearable by offering frozen ready-to-cook packs of our favorite comfort food. Just in case you missed the big news, McDonald's is the latest establishment that now offers cook-it-yourself packs of their famous chicken and chicken nuggets.
How to cook cook-it-yourself Chicken McDo:
McDonald's Chicken Cuts (P219/a pack of 10 pieces) and Spicy Marinated Chicken Cuts (P219/a pack of 10 pieces) are brined which makes the meat extra juicy, but these packs of cook-it-yourself chicken does not come with the breading. The breading is a crucial step to achieve a crunchy chicken skin and an easy way you can do it is by dipping the chicken in an egg wash and coating it in seasoned flour (flour, salt, and pepper) before frying until golden brown.
How to cook cook-it-yourself McNuggets:
McDonald's move of offering frozen Chicken Nuggets (P454/a pack of 50 pieces) is definitely a big deal, especially for those whose go-to McDonald's order is a box of these boneless chicken pops with a side of rice or fries. You can fry the chicken nuggets as is until it gets a darker golden brown color. It's just as good as the one you can order!
Barbecue sauce hack:
Unfortunately, the barbecue sauce is not included in the pack. But you don't need to worry since there is an easy way you can make your own barbecue sauce using ingredients that are likely to be in your kitchen. All you'll need is to heat a 4:1 ratio of ketchup or tomato sauce, and brown sugar in a pan. Let it cool and serve with the chicken nuggets.
If you have the extra budget, you can make our all-around barbecue sauce recipe, too!
