  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup dill pickle juice
  • 1 whole large egg
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

  1. Trim and cut the chicken into bit sized pieces.  Whisk egg, pickle juice, and milk together. Place chicken in milk mixture, and cover. Let stand for 1-2 hours in the fridge.
  2. Place 2 inches of oil into a deep pan.  Heat over medium high heat until the oil is hot (375 degrees).  
  3. In a zip-lock bag mix together flour, powdered sugar, salt, pepper and paprika. Remove chicken from milk mixture, and place in the flour mixture.  Shake to coat.  
  4. Put about 8 nuggets into the pan, be careful not to overcrowd.  Cook for about 2-3 minute on each side, or until golden brown.  
  5. Remove chicken and drain on a paper towel.  You could place on a rack in a hot oven to keep them warm if you are making a lot of them. 
  6. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
