Upgrade your regular chicken nuggets with a tasty airy batter. Paired with an easy anchovy mayo, Battered Chicken Nuggets are elevated to the next level.

For the chicken nuggets:
 1 ½ cups semolina flour (Additional ~1/3 cup semolina flour needed for dredging)
 ¾ cup tapioca flour
 1 tsp baking soda
 1 ⅓ cups sparkling water
 4 chicken breasts, cut into nugget-sized pieces
 vegetable oil
For the mayo:
 1 cup mayonnaise
 1 tbsp smoked paprika
 4 anchovy fillets

In a large bowl, combine 3/4 cup semolina flour, tapioca flour, baking soda. Whisk until combined.


Whisk in the sparkling water until a loose batter forms.


Heat a pan of oil until the oil reaches 350°F.


Add 1/4 cup of the semolina flour in a small bowl. Dip each chicken nugget in the flour and then dip them into the batter.


Working in batches, fry the nuggets for 3-4 minutes until golden brown. They will float when they are ready.


Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.


For the mayo, blend together the mayonnaise, anchovy fillets, and smoked paprika into a smooth paste in a food processor.


Serve hot and with the anchovy mayo or any other favorite dip.
