Chic Fil-A Chicken Nuggets

These. Are. Amazing! They come out SO tender and tasty. Crispy and just slightly sweet. I think it's needless to say, but the kids loved them. And Dad loved them. Even Mom loved them. I guess that means we all loved them. And when you make them, you will love them, too!

2 skinless and boneless chicken breasts
1 cup milk
1 egg
1 1/4 cups flour
2 TBSP powdered sugar
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
peanut oil (is best) or canola oil

In a medium bowl whisk the egg and stir in the milk. Trim any fat away from chicken. Cube chicken into bite size pieces. Place chicken in milk mixture,and cover. Let it stand for 2-4 hours in the fridge. This makes the chicken very nice and tender. In a large resealable baggie combine flour, powdered sugar, salt and pepper. Seal and shake to combine. Place about 2 inches of oil in a medium deep pot. Over medium high heat heat oil until hot. If using a thermometer let the temperature reach 375°. Remove cut chicken from milk mixture and place in the flour mixture. Seal and shake until nuggets are completely coated. Place nuggets in batches (so they can be in a single layer and you still have room to flip them) into hot oil and let them cook until golden brown, turning half way through once the edge of your chicken starts to turn white. About 1 minute each side or until cooked through. Remove and drain on a paper towel. Repeat until all nuggets are cooked.
