Copycat Chik-Fil-A Chicken Nuggets

Note:   We love Chik-Fil-A!      We could eat there at least once a week.   Whether hot or cold it is oh so delicious.   It is "my pleasure" to make these for my boys.

Copycat Chik-Fil-A Chicken Nuggets

2 skinless and boneless chicken breasts
1 cup milk
1 egg
1 1/4 cups flour
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
oil for frying

In a medium bowl whisk together egg and milk. Trim fat from chicken and dice into large cubes. Place chicken in egg mixture, cover and allow to marinate in the fridge 2-4 hours.

In a large bowl combine flour, powdered sugar, salt and pepper. Dredge chicken until thoroughly coated. Meanwhile, over medium high heat, heat oil in a large, high sided skillet until hot or 375°. There should be 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch or so in the pan. Drop 10-12 nuggets into the oil and fry until golden brown and the chicken is completely cooked through, turning several times. Repeat until all the chicken is cooked. Drain on a paper towel. Serve warm.
