Almost Chic-fil-a nuggets
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 3 lbs skinless boneless chicken breasts (about 6 breasts), cut into bite-sized pieces
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 4 teaspoons salt
- 3 teaspoons black pepper
- canola oil, for frying
Combine the eggs and milk in a medium-sized bowl. Add the chicken bites and stir briefly to coat in the milk mixture. Cover and allow to marinate in the fridge for 2 to 4 hours, or up to overnight.
Using a gallon size Ziplock bag, combine the flour, powdered sugar, salt and pepper. Seal and shake to mix it all up. Heat the oil in a deep fryer or dutch oven, or anything deep, over medium high heat until the temperature reaches 375F.
Using tongs, or spoon, or hand, or what you want to use to transfer half of the marinated chicken from the milk mixture into the storage bag with the flour. Seal and shake to coat the chicken pieces. Fry 6 to 8 nuggets at a time until cooked through and golden brown, turning once halfway. The timing will depend on the size of your nuggets, but I found that I needed to fry each batch a total of 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a plate or whatever you want to use, lined with paper towels.
