A majority of the population has eaten a chicken nugget at least once in their lifetime. There is no denying their deliciousness whether they are home cooked or picked up from a fast-food chain. So, who do we thank for this scrumptious meat product? We thank the man who invented the chicken nugget – Robert C. Baker.
Robert C. Baker was a professor of food science at Cornell University. He traveled the globe in search of new and innovative ways to eat chicken. He invented over 40 other poultry related items but he is best known for his invention of the chicken nugget. His innovations are what allowed chicken nuggets to be molded into different shapes. Baker can also be credited with finding a revolutionary new way to attach breading to chicken. Additionally he helped to invent a machine that debones chickens. His contributions to the poultry science made him a member of the American Poultry Hall of Fame.
