Turkey thighs lend themselves to an array of dishes, and they are one of my favourite cuts of the bird to use in my everyday cooking. Everyone loves fried chicken, so I decided to make this delicious variation using turkey instead.
I added a unique Indian twist by spicing up and frying my nuggets using rice and cornflour instead of regular breading. If you skip the plain flour in the recipe, it works well as a gluten free recipe too. This recipe worked so well, that even my notoriously finicky foodie friend Addie loved them. He was surprised at how moist the turkey nuggets were, especially as I hadn't brined them at all. The spiciness of the marinade can be adjusted to your preference, especially if you are making these for kids. You can also subsititute sliced turkey breasts, if you don't want to bone out thighs (though thighs do have better flavour and stay moister)
I serve these nuggets simply with lime wedges to squeeze over, but you can also make a yogurt dip, with plain yogurt seasoned with a little salt, cumin and garlic. This is a perfect dish to take on picnics and as a appetizer with drinks too.
