Step 1

In a medium bowl whisk the egg and stir in the milk.
Trim any fat away from chicken and cut chicken into bite size pieces.
Place chicken in 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°. If you don't have a thermometer, test the 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 cut chicken from milk mixture and place in the flour mixture.
Seal and shake until nuggets are completely coated.
Place about a 6-8 nuggets into hot oil and let them cook until golden brown, turning half way 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. Just make a tiny cut to see if it's pink.
Remove and drain on a paper towel.
Repeat until all nuggets are cooked.

For the sauce, combine all ingredients; mix till smooth.
