Chick-Fil-A Nuggets (copycat)

Found a couple recipes online and mixed them together.  They are awesome!  I'm sure you could use a 1/2 breast pounded thin to make the sandwich, too, but the nuggets are easier and super yummy.

2 chicken breasts
1 c dill pickle juice
1/4 c milk

1/2 c milk
1 egg

1 c flour
1 1/2 t pepper
3 T powdered sugar
1/2 t paprika
2 t salt

oil for deep fryer

Dice chicken breasts into about 1 inch cubes.  In a ziploc bag, mix pickle juice, 1/4 c milk, and chicken.  Throw in the fridge for about 2 hours to brine, turning over once or twice if you can.

In a bowl, mix egg and remaining milk well.  Drain liquid from chicken.  Replace with egg mixture.

In another ziploc bag, mix all dry ingredients.  Add a handful of chicken pieces at a time into the dry ingredient bag.  Shake like shake-n-bake.  Heat oil to about 350/365.  Deep fry in small batches for about 2-4 mintues, until golden brown and the chicken is cooked through.

Enjoy with whatever you can come up with for chick-fil-a sauce, or ketchup, etc.
