Chicky Nuggets

If asked what my favorite fast food place would be I would have to say.
I love their sweet nuggets and waffle fries.

You can only imagine when I came across this recipe for
Sweet Chicky Nuggets at
This recipe is amazing-
we did adapt it a little.

2 skinless boneless chicken breasts
1 cup milk
1 egg
1 1/4 cup flour
2 Tbs powdered sugar
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
peanut oil or canola oil

Look how cute my measuring spoons are.  I really like how they make me smile each time I drop a spoonful.

In a medium bowl whisk the egg and stir in milk.  Trim any fat away from chicken.  Cube chicken into bite size pieces (we like our pieces small).  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 medium bowl combine flour, sugar salt & pepper.  Place 2" of oil into deep fryer or pot.  Heat oil over medium high heat until 375 degrees.  If you don't have a thermometer do the drop test.  Drop a couple of drips of water into oil.  It should sizzle and not pop too much.  Adjust your heat if necessary.  Using a fork remove a few pieces of chicken from milk mixture and place in flour mix.  Make sure to fully coat chicken.  Place about 6-8 pieces into hot oil letting them cook until golden brown, turning once the edges are turning white.  About 1 minute on each side.  Double check to see if chicken is cooked through.  Cut a little slit to see if it's pink.  Remove and drain on paper towel.  Repeat until all nuggets are cooked.  Serve with your favorite sauce and enjoy!

We had a little of the flour mix left and thought about yummy
fish 'n chips, so why not chicken 'n chips.

We enjoyed our nuggets with
Mac 'n Cheese Balls (recipe will be out next week)

Don't ask- this is just something she says???


  1. Tried these tonight. Was a bit skeptical but hey, what not!! They don't taste exact - but didnt expect them to- but dang these come close! These are great and especially if you have kiddos that love nuggets- much healthier and cheaper than buying the frozen kind or at a fast food place. I do have one question- what do you do with the oil after you make fried stuff?

  2. Chick fl la recipes calls for pickle juice.
