Nicole's StoryI have a backlog of recipes to be added to my cookbook, and this is one of them. But I remember it as being easy, delicious, and, how do you say? clean tasting? If you want to make your own chicken nuggets, instead of the over-processed ones you can buy, here's one choice!
Also, if it's cheaper to buy chicken strips, that's all the more easy for you.
chicken breasts, boneless and skinless (4 oz each)
oil for frying
1Mix honey and Dijon ahead of time. Making it a couple of days in advance will allow the flavors to mix and enhance.
2Cut chicken into 1/2" x 2" strips.
3Mix flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl. Dip chicken in milk. Roll in flour mixture to coat well. Place chicken on waxed paper.
4Pour 1/4" of oil into a large heavy skillet. Heat over medium-high heat to 350*F, or until a cube of white bread dropped in oil browns with 1 minute.
5Divide chicken into batches. Place chicken in an even layer in hot oil. Fry, turning once, for about 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown and crisp. Drain on paper towels. Serve with sauce.
