Our Answer

All of the chicken in McDonald's Chicken McNuggets is "actual chicken". They are made from chicken breast and a few seasonings, along with a natural proportion of chicken skin, used for both flavour and as a binder. The breast meat is removed from the bird and then mixed with seasoning prior to shaping the Chicken McNuggets. The nuggets are then coated with a tempura-style batter.
