A British competitive eater broke a Guinness World Record after snarfing down 19 chicken nuggets in one minute.

Guinness World Records said Leah Shutkever from England's West Midlands broke the record while backstage at the Guinness World Records Italian show,  Lo Show Dei Record in Milan.

Shutkever was going for 20 nuggets in a minute but only was able to get 19 down in the allotted amount of time. Guinness said the weight of the nuggets totaled 12.42 ounces of chicken nuggets, so basically a little over 3/4lb of nuggs.

She stole the record from Nela Zisser, who downed 10.51 ounces of nuggets in 2020.

Shutkever holds other Guinness World Records, like:

  • Fastest Time To Eat Three Mince Pies
  • Fastest Time to Eat Three Pickled Eggs
  • Fastest Time to Eat A Muffin (No Hands)
  • Most Marshmallows Eaten in One Minute (No Hands)
  • Most Tomatoes Eaten in One Minute
  • Most Chicken Nuggets Eaten in Three Minutes
