I made these last night and they were a hit! My little boy loved them and we thought they were reminiscent of Chick-Fil-A, which doesn't exist here in Oz so were were excited for that.
Ingredients 1 wholeLarge Egg 1 cupMilk 2 wholeSkinless And Boneless Chicken Breasts 1-1/4 cupFlour 1-1/2 TablespoonPowdered Sugar or Icing Sugar (that is what they call it in Oz) 2 teaspoonsSalt 1 teaspoonPepper 4 cupsPeanut Oil Or Canola Oil, For Frying (I don't think I used quite this much)
In a medium bowl, whisk the egg and stir in the milk. Trim any fat away from the chicken. Cube chicken into bite size pieces. Place chicken in the milk mixture and cover. Let it marinate for 2–4 hours in the fridge. This will make the chicken very nice and tender.
In a gallon size resealable baggie, combine flour, powdered sugar, salt and pepper. Seal and shake to combine.
Place about 2 inches of oil in a medium deep pot. Over medium high heat (more towards the high side) heat oil until hot. If using a thermometer let the temperature reach 375°F. If you don’t have a fancy gadget like most people, I always test my oil by dropping a few drops of water into it. You want it to sizzle and not pop too much. Adjust your heat if necessary.
Using a fork or tongs, remove the cut chicken from the milk mixture and place into the flour mixture. Seal and shake until nuggets are completely coated. Place about 6 to 8 nuggets into the hot oil and let them cook until golden brown, turning halfway through once the edge of your chicken starts to turn white, about 1 minute each side. Always double check to see if any chicken you make is cooked through. I always just make a tiny cut to see if it’s pink. Remove and drain on a paper towel. Repeat until all nuggets are cooked.
