A TikTok is going viral for being the perfect McNuggets recipe!

The tutorial, titled The coveted McNuggets, it has surpassed 27 million views on TikTok with some even claiming they're better than the real thing.

Joshuah Nishi, 19, is only in his first year of college but his guided recipes on TikTok reveal a wealth of knowledge. He now has 1.6 million followers thanks to his home fast-food how-tos, but by far his McNugget recipe is his most popular to date.

The recipe is as simple as cutting chicken breast into cubes, blending and creating a "dry mix".

So how do we make them?

Joshuah starts with chicken breast and cuts it into small cubes. He then says to blend the chicken in batches.

"You can use a grinder if you have one, but I don't have one I'm guessing a lot of you don't have one," he says, adding the importance of using salt and pepper.

Then, it's time to shape your nuggets.

"The key to shaping your nuggets is to keep your hands wet so it doesn't stick to you."

He says to then throw the batch into the freezer for two hours, which is when it's time to move on to the dry and wet mix.

Dry mix ingredients



Onion powder

Garlic powder



Wet mix ingredients


1/2 cup water

1/4 cup cornstarch

Once the mixes are done it's time to fry the nuggets for "about two minutes each side".
