According to the video, the process starts with whole chicken being split into various cuts, including breast meat. The meat is then ground and seasoned. That ground meat is then stamped into the 4 nugget shapes: a ball, bell, boot and bow tie. Did you even know they came in specific shapes?

The nuggets are then covered twice in a batter, flash-fried, frozen, packaged and shipped out to the restaurants where the nuggets will be fully cooked.
