Chicken Nuggets--some say like Chick Fila!
1-2 lbs. chicken breast, cut into nugget-sized pieces
1 cup milk
canola or peanut oil
1 1/4 cup flour
3 Tbs powdered sugar
salt and pepper
Mixed the egg and milk. Add chicken pieces. Cover the dish and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
Mix the dry ingredients in a gallon-size ziploc bag. Put in chicken pieces, 5-10 at a time, shake until well coated. Heat oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Carefully add chicken. Cook on each side until brown. Drain cooked chicken on paper towels.
My own tip: To lessen calories and add a boost of nutrition, I used Egg Beaters and skim milk plus whole wheat flour.
Granted these will not be exactly like Chick Fila, but they're great if you don't have one in your city or if you're craving Chick Fila on a Sunday. ;)
