A quenelle is simply an oval shaped meat patty made of minced meat, bread crumbs, and milk. Yep- it’s basically a chicken nugget! Quenelle is so much more elegant, isn’t it?
Use two soup spoons and keep your hands mess free. The shape is kid friendly and cooks up quickly, and the texture is closer to a fast food style chicken nugget than the traditional DIY nuggets (breaded chicken chunks.)
