Place the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese in a shallow bowl or on a plate and stir to combine.
With moistened hands, roll 1 tablespoon of chicken mixture between your palms and flatten it into a “nugget” shape.
Coat the nuggets in flour, then egg, and then the bread crumbs and place the nuggets back on the tray.
Deep fry in small batches until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
