Every week, we suggest a fascinating, unique and delicious dish that is easy to reheat at your office lunchroom. This week’s #BYOL recipe: Sweet “Chick-fil-A-Style” Nuggets.
There’s no interesting backstory to this recipe. Apparently, Amy at My Name is Snicker Doodle has a deep love for nuggets that come from a certain fast food chain that does not sell cow meat, and she also loves to reverse engineer recipes for fun. Now, let’s get started on this week’s #BYOL recipe.
Step 0 - Gather Your Ingredients
+ Skinless and boneless chicken breasts
+ 1 cup milk
+ 1 egg
+ 1 1/4 cups of flour
+ 2 tbsp powdered sugar
+ 2 tsp salt
+ 1 tsp pepper
+ Peanut oil
Step 1 - Cut & Marinate those Nuggets
+ Whisk the egg and milk in a bowl.
+ Slice the chicken into bit-size cubes.
+ Place chicken in milk mixture. Let the chicken marinate for 2-4 hours inside your refrigerator.
Step 2 - Flavor Infuse those Nuggets
+ Mix the flour, powdered sugar, pepper and salt in a large (gallon-size) zip-lock bag. Throw the chicken into the bag, and shake it up.
Step 3 - Fry those Nuggets
+ Heat up two inches of oil in a medium pot over a medium-high flame. The oil will be ready at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
+ Cook up to eight nuggets (or whatever fits comfortably) at a time. Turn them when they’re half done. You’ll know when they’re half done when the edge of the chicken whitens. You only need about a minute for each side, but double check each batch by cutting a nugget to find any pink (under-cooked) meat.
Step 4 - Eat & Enjoy
