Chick-Fil-A chicken nugget recipe

05 January 2013

My parents decided to gift (doom) us with a Fry Daddy for Christmas! Today we tried it out and made homemade french fries and Chick-Fil-A chicken nuggets. They were absolutely delicious!!
 I may or may not have eaten 15 chicken nuggets by myself (count if you want or just trust me if you are lazy) but I didn't feel so bad because they are homemade and that makes them healthy. Pretend with me okay? Anyway, here are the glorious recipes we used:
Home Made Chick-Fil-A Chicken Nuggets
    (original recipe from zesty bites but we tweaked it a little)
1 lg egg
1 cup milk
1 lb. skinless and boneless chicken breasts (we used 8 Tyson skinless/boneless chicken breast tenders)
1-1/4 cup flour
2 Tbsp powdered sugar
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp paprika
canola oil for frying
In a large bowl whisk milk and egg together
Place chicken on counter and cut into cubed bite size pieces; trim any fat that you may see
Put the chicken in the milk mixture and mix so that all is coated and place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes (we soaked them for 3 hours)
In another large bowl combine the dry ingredients listed above and stir
In cast iron pot or sauce pan pour in oil so that its at least an inch deep on med/high heat
Remove the chicken from refrigerator and place about 8 pieces in milk mixture and then into the flour mixture
Make sure all the chicken is coated with the flour and then place into the hot oil
Cook each side for at least 2-3 minutes or until golden brown (You want to make sure that chicken is no longer pink so you can cut one piece to test it out)
Place the chicken on some paper towels to soak up any oil
Repeat the same steps with the rest of the chicken and serve

French Fries Recipe
(we made this up, they taste like Wendy's fries to me [only better of course])

2 lbs potatoes
canola oil for frying
season salt

Cut the potatoes into strips.
Soak the strips in a large bowl of water for at least an hour or so (we soaked them for 3 hrs) This is an important step to get rid of of the starch before frying.
Set them in the Fry Daddy until they are golden brown
Sprinkle with season salt and serve

.....and you can't have Chick-Fil-A nuggets, without Chick-Fil-A sauce! I'm still working on a Chick-Fil-A sauce recipe, so pick up a few extra packets next time you go! I'm addicted to that stuff! Read about it here.
