Chicken Nugget Ingredients
- 4 chicken boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into bite-size pieces
- 1 ½ cups milk
- ½ cup dill pickle juice
- 1 sleeve Ritz crackers townhouse
- 1 ½ cups breadcrumbs
- ½ cup flour
- 1 ½ teaspoon paprika
- 1 ½ teaspoon pepper
- 2 teaspoons salt
- ½ cup powdered sugar
- Peanut oil for frying
Chick Fil A Sauce Ingredients
- ½ cup mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
- 2 tablespoon barbecue sauce
- 2 tablespoon honey
In a large bowl combine the milk and pickle juice. Add the chicken pieces and make sure they are covered. Move the bowl to the fridge to marinate from 1-3 hours.
To make the breading for the chicken nuggets use a food processor to finely crush the crackers, breadcrumbs, flour, paprika, pepper, salt and powdered sugar.
When you are ready to fry add peanut oil to a deep frying pan, dutch oven or a deep fryer. You want enough oil to cover the nuggets. Heat the oil to 350-360.
You can dredge your nuggets in the breading mixture one by one. I prefer to place the breading mixture in a ziploc bag, add the nuggets and shake them up until coated.
When the oil is hot enough, drop in the nuggets and let them fry 2-3 minutes, until golden brown, turning them over for even cooking. Do this in batches and do not overcrowd the pan.
Drain the nuggets of paper towels and repeat with other batches until they are all cooked. Serve with Chick Fil A Sauce and enjoy!
