Ingredients

  • 2

    skinless and boneless chicken breasts

  • 1

    cup milk

  • 1

    egg

  • 1 1/4

    cups flour

  • 2

    Tbsp. powdered sugar

  • 2

    tsp salt

  • 1

    tsp pepper

  • peanut oil (is best) or canola oil

  • Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

  • Source

  • 1/2

    cup mayonnaise

  • 2

    Tablespoons yellow mustard

  • 1

    Tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 3

    Tablespoons Honey

  • 1/2

    Tablespoon lemon juice

Directions

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.
