Homemade Chik-Fil-A Nuggets Recipe

Ingredients:

1 lg egg
1 cup milk
1 lb. skinless and boneless chicken breasts
1-1/4 cup flour
2 Tbsp powdered sugar
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder
canola oil for frying

Preparation:

In a large bowl whisk milk and egg together

Place chicken on counter and cut into cubed bite size pieces; trim any fat that you may see
Put the chicken in the milk mixture and mix so that all is coated and place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes

In another large bowl combine the dry ingredients listed above and stir

In cast iron pot or sauce pan pour in oil so that its at least an inch deep on med/high heat

Remove the chicken from refrigerator and place about 8 pieces in milk mixture and then into the flour mixture

Make sure all the chicken is coated with the flour and then place into the hot oil

Cook each side for at least 2-3 minutes or until golden brown (You want to make sure that chicken is no longer pink so you can cut one piece to test it out)

Place the chicken on some paper towels to soak up any oil

Repeat the same steps with the rest of the chicken and serve

    Try adding some pickle juice to the milk. It’s CFA’s secret ingredient
