Battling rumors that their McNuggets contain the notorious pink slime, McDonald’s Canada released a video tour of one of their factories in London Canada.
The process begins at their de-boning department, where whole chickens are sliced up and the chicken breast is set aside in a separate bin. The breast meat is then ushered into the “blending room” where it’s ground up and blended with seasoning and chicken skin.
Next, the lovely mash of beige is formed into the four official chicken nugget shapes and covered with a light batter, followed by a thicker, tempura batter. From there, the lil’ nuggets are par-fried, frozen and packaged for shipping. You can peek the full walk-through below. We can’t guarantee it’ll make you crave a happy meal but hey, at least it’s “bona fide” chicken.
