Keep the chicken away from any residues of fat and reduce into chunks. Make them as small as possible to get a well-ground mixture.
Add the chicken inside a mixer and chop.
Add also 1 egg, Parmesan, previously boiled spinach, salt and breadcrumbs as required. Mix all for about a minute to obtain a perfectly fine mixture.
Take a handful of dough and make a ball. Flat it lightly and pass first in the flour, then in the egg beaten with a pinch of salt and finally in breadcrumbs.
Place them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and sprinkle with extra virgin olive oil.
Bake in a preheated oven at 356°F for about 20 minutes. Turn your spinach nuggets halfway through cooking to allow a homogeneous and above all golden cooking on both sides.
