Chik-Fil-A Nuggets

So, we are in the process of moving. My husband is already in the city we are moving to. With him not here I find myself trying many new recipe's. So, here is my newest one ( that was good anyways). Having kids we all know they love chicken nuggets and living where there is no Chik-Fil-A I saw this recipe and had to try it!! Now I don't go to Chik-Fil-A but, once or twice a year so, I can't say this was exact. My kids loved them and I thought they were pretty good too!!

Homemade Chik-fil-A Nuggets
(Recipe from A Zesty Bite)
1 lg egg
1 cup milk
1/4 cup Pickle Juice (I used dill)------- I know sounds weird but you couldn't even taste it!!!
1 lb. skinless and boneless chicken breasts
1-1/4 cup flour
2 Tbsp powdered sugar
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder
canola oil for frying
In a large bowl whisk milk and egg, pickle Juice 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
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
