So i was in front of the TV and watching Masterchef Canada the other night and see how they were making scotch egg for their pressure night episode, so i thought, okay i got chicken (not beef as how it supposed to be but well okayy) and eggs – let’s make it tomorrow, and voila. A homemade chicken scotch egg.
Chicken. It’s more common to use beef for scotch egg but chicken will do fine too. I use minced chicken.
Flour. I use gluten free flour with quick cook oatmeal.
Seasoning and Herbs. Add some green onion and salt and pepper to the chicken stuff.
Eggs. We want a hard boiled eggs. Boil the eggs for 12-14 minutes, and put them into the ice water to stop the cooking process. Peel them once it’s cooled off. You’ll have a clean hard boiled eggs without the green thing on the yolk
Bread flakes. For the crispy layer.
Oils. I use a little but sesame oil for the chicken stuff and coconut oil for frying
For the chicken stuff, stir together the chicken, flour, green onion, seasoning and herbs.
After peeling the egg, mold them with the chicken stuff, it’s like making a pao. Then put them in a bowl of egg for the glue to the bread flakes.
After surround the egg with chicken stuff and marinate them in a bowl of egg, “marinate” them in the bread flakes so everything covered in bread flakes.
Fry with coconut oil until it’s brown and cooked.
Chicken stuff :
- For a 500 gr chicken : ( because i am making it for meatballs also – ao 500 gr chicken will be a lot of chicken stuff)

The rest ingredients :
