Update 1/19/2013: Finally got new pictures of this one too. This time I made it with chicken breasts that I sliced in half to "thin" and then trimmed down to a burger bun size. It's one of our family favorites and we eat it regularly. Of course, we always eat it with waffle fries!
If you love Chik-fil-A, you will now love me for sharing this awesome copycat recipe with you!
And a great big thanks to babygirl65 on Food.com for the recipe!
What you need:
- 3 cups oil
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup flour
- 2 1/2 tbsp. powdered sugar
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
- 1 tbsp. salt
- 2 boneless chicken breasts, halved (or tenderloins, if you don't need it exactly like Chik-fil-A)
|In a small bowl, combine flour, powdered sugar, pepper and salt.|
|In a separate bowl, beat egg and stir in milk (obviously not beaten here).|
|Dip each piece of chicken in milk mixture until moistened.|
|Roll chicken in flour mix until completely coated.|
|Fry in oil until chicken is golden brown.|
|Place on paper towel to drain.|
|Serve with grilled buttered buns and pickles.|
I made the chicken nugget form - just like Chik-fil-A nuggets. The kids loved them!!
And I actually got a good picture!
