Number of ingredients: 8
  • 4 medium boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 jar pickle juice
  • 1 ¾ cup milk, divided
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tbsp confectioners sugar
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • canola oil
How to cook:
  1. In a large bowl, combine pickle juice, cubed chicken, and ¾ c. milk. Marinate for 30-60 minutes.
  2. In a large dutch oven, begin by heating 2 inches of canola oil over med/med-high heat until it reaches 360 degrees. Allow the heat to come back up between batches of chicken.
  3. Cut the chicken breasts into 1.5 - 2 inch cubes, keeping them as evenly sized as possible, so they finish cooking at the same time.
  4. Combine remaining milk and egg in a bowl. Drain marinated chicken and place in this bowl.
  5. In a gallon-sized bag or another bowl, mix flour, confectioners sugar, and season with salt and pepper. Remove the chicken from the milk mixture, allow excess to drip off, and coat well with flour.
  6. Cook chicken in oil without overcrowding the pan for 5-6 minutes, until deeply golden brown. Allow to drain on a cooling rack or paper towel. You can keep them warm in a 200°F oven while you finish cooking the rest if you would like!

  • 1 quart peanut oil, (or canola oil)

How to cook:
  1. Cut the chicken breasts into bite-sized chunks. Warm the pickle juice in the microwave, in a microwave-safe bowl, until hot to the touch. Stir in the sugar until completely dissolved. Add the chicken chunks and allow them to soak for at least 30 minutes, or overnight. Place in the refrigerator while brining.
  2. For the Sauce: Mix all ingredients in a small bowl until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Once the chicken has brined in the pickle juice, mix the flour, salt, cornstarch, paprika, garlic powder, and black pepper in a medium bowl. Drain off the pickle juice. Set out a drying/cooling rack and dredge the chicken chunks in the flour. Shake off all excess flour so the coating is very thin. Lay the chicken on the rack. Coat all the chicken pieces before moving on.
  4. Next beat the milk and eggs in a separate bowl. Pour 2 tablespooons of eggwash in the remaining flour mix and work it into little pebbles with your fingers. Dunk the chicken chunks in the eggwash, then dip them back into the flour mixture. Shake off the excess flour and lay them back on the drying rack.
  5. Once all the chicken is double-dipped in the flour mixture, pour the oil in a large sauce pot. Turn the heat on medium to medium-high. Place a clip-on thermometer on the side of the pot and bring the temperature up to 350 degrees F.
  6. Once the oil is ready, gently place one-third of the chicken chunks to the hot oil. Stir once, and fry 3-4 minutes until golden brown. Use a spider skimmer to scoop the chicken pieces out of the oil. Place them on a paper towel lined plate. Cut one large piece open to make sure it's cooked through.
  7. Allow the temperature to rise back to 350 degrees. Repeat with the remaining chicken pieces two more times. You can keep the fried chicken pieces warm in a 200 degree F oven if you like. Once all the chicken is cooked, serve warm with Chick-fil-A Sauce.

Provided by: Rebecca Hubbell
Total time: 165 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes
Prep time: 15 minutes
Yields: 4 servings
Cuisine: American
Number of ingredients: 12
  • 2 chicken breasts (cut into bite size pieces)
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ½ cup pickle juice
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 3 cups peanut oil
How to cook:
  1. Mix the milk and pickle juice in a large ziplock bag. Whisk the egg slightly and add it to the marinade.
  2. Then add the bite-sized chicken pieces to the marinade. Set this in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  3. Whisk the dry ingredients together in a large bowl: flour, powdered sugar, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and cornstarch.
  4. Set a wire rack next to the bowl of dry ingredients. Prepare a plate next to the stove, lined with paper towels, to set the fried chicken on.
  5. When the chicken is done marinating, remove it from the marinade (I used tongs, or you could use a slotted spoon) and put it into the bowl with the flour mixture. Toss all of the chicken pieces well. When all of the pieces are coated, place the chicken pieces onto the wire rack and allow the chicken to rest while you make the sauce and heat the oil.
  6. Heat the oil to medium in a deep skillet or dutch oven.
  7. Fry about half of the chicken at a time, or even smaller batches, don’t crowd the chicken as you fry it. Fry the chicken nuggets until golden brown. (3-5 minutes until cooked through. I recommend testing a couple first)
  8. Place the fried chicken on a paper towel-lined plate. Then fry the rest of the chicken.
  9. Serve the chicken nuggets with the dipping sauce on the side.

Cuisine: American
Number of ingredients: 11
  • 1 ½ pounds (650g) boneless and skinless chicken breasts (about 3 large breasts)
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups (120g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • peanut oil (for frying, at least 1 inch)

How to cook:
  1. In a gallon sized Ziploc bag, add the chicken, buttermilk, egg, and salt. Seal the bag and give everything a good mix. Chill in the fridge for 20-30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, make the the dredging mixture. In a shallow bowl (I used my 9 inch pie dish), combine the flour with baking powder, powdered sugar, paprika, salt and pepper. Whisk everything to combine.
  3. Add at least 1 inch of peanut oil to a dutch oven and heat to 350°F/180°C.
  4. Remove the chicken pieces from the brine, and dredge in the flour mixture shaking off any excess flour. Do not leave any spots that are not covered with flour.
  5. Drop in hot oil (work in batches), and cook for around 4 minutes. Flip the chicken every 30 seconds as you fry, this will help with even cooking (unless you’re using a deep fryer).
  6. Drain cooked nuggets on a wire rack or paper towel lined dish as you fry the rest. Try to maintain the oil temperature as you fry (higher than 350 and the outside will be brown too quickly, and the chicken won’t cook on the inside, if the temp is lower then you risk the coating falling off and the chicken won’t brown very well and you might end up with overcooked chicken nuggets).
  7. Serve with chick-fil-a sauce and waffle fries.
