Copycat Chickfila Nuggets

I found this recipe on Pinterest, and I can honestly say that I believe that these nuggets are BETTER than Chickfila nuggets

1 package of chicken breasts (~1.25 lbs) cut into bite size pieces
3/4C milk
1/4C pickle juice (I just used what was in my Claussen jar)
1 egg
1.25C flour
2 tbs powdered sugar
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1C peanut oil

  1. Whisk together milk, pickle juice, egg and put into a gallon sized Ziploc bag.
  2. Add chicken pieces to Ziploc bag and marinate in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Combine flour, powdered sugar, salt, and pepper in a gallon sized Ziploc bag. Shake to combine.
  4. Remove chicken from marinade bag and add to flour bag.
  5. Seal and shake flour bag until all pieces are coated.
  6. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat.
  7. Gently place chicken in skillet with tongs (to not splash yourself with oil), in multiple batches as to not overcrowd the pan.
  8. Cook chicken ~3-4 minutes on each side.
  9. Remove chicken from skillet and place on paper towel lined plate to absorb excess oil.
  10. Enjoy!
