This is an all time favorite recipe in our house. If you are a fan of Chick-Fil-A chicken nuggets, this is the same recipe they use in their restaurants. It's the best breading recipe I've ever used & we make it all the time. For our family of 8 we double this recipe. . .
1.5 pounds chicken cut into nuggets or strips
1 cup flour
2.5 Tablespoons powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 Tablespoon salt
oil for frying
Cut your chicken into nuggets or strips (if you want monster claw looking chicken). Mix egg & milk in a bowl. Put chicken slices in milk mixture & let sit for at least 5 minutes. Mix flour, sugar, pepper, & salt in another bowl. Heat oil. Dip wet chicken into dry ingredients & coat. Dip back into the milk/egg mixture & then back again into the dry ingredients (double coated). Fry until brown & cooked through.
Like I said before, these are AMAZING. They are delicious! Your family will love them.
Spider Web Dipping Sauce:
ketchup & mustard
Fill a small bowl with ketchup. Squeeze mustard into 3 circles around the ketchup. Using a toothpick, pull the mustard from the center circle all the way out to the edge & through the other two circles. Do this 5 or 6 times until you get a spider web effect.
string cheese & a Sharpie
For these, just draw a ghost face on your string cheese. Easy peasy.
