Is this the UK’s largest chicken nugget?
The almighty friend chicken monster weighs an incredible one-and-a-half kilograms – the equivalent of 85 standard chicken nuggets you can pick up in a Happy Meal.
Anyone who completes the ‘Nugzilla’ challenge will digest a huge 6,000 calories in one sitting – six times the recommended daily amount for an average adult.
It also comes with its own bottle of barbecue sauce to help wash it down.
The recipe sees more than three pounds of minced chicken shaped on a baking tray before being rolled in flour and spices.
The entire nugget is then squeezed into a deep fat fryer – it just about fits – and cooked until golden brown.
The chef plates up the dish with a large serving of fries and a little extra spice.
Lucas, founding director of Rub Smokehouse, said: “The Nugzilla is born of my love of chicken nuggets. I can never get enough.
“We were sat round one night and we though ‘let’s make the biggest chicken nugget we can possibly do’.
“In an average portion the fat content is about 330 grams and there are 4,500 calories. There’s also another 1,200 calories in the fries alone.
“We’ve had quite a good take up of it. About six people have managed to eat the entire thing.
“We do have a booking of 12 individuals coming in at the same time and they’re going to chop their way through it. Let’s see how it goes for them!
“It is a bit like marmite. You either love it or you hate it. But the response on social media has been out of this world.”
