Foodie Friday

Welcome To Foodie Friday!
Home Maid Simple has teamed up with Diane at Simple Living to bring you a new weekly blog hop.
Each week we will be posting a recipe.  We'd love to have you all join us by linking up your recipes below.  

I love food. I've mentioned it before, but I have a hard time making the same recipe twice, even if it was amazing, because I always want to try something new. Pinterest hasn't helped with this food love either.
In fact, my first recipe for you comes from pinterest

I bring to you this week
Chick-Fil-a nuggets 
(original recipe found here)
My recipe has been altered for a dairy and nut allergy!

3 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
6 eggs
4 cups flour
6 TBS powdered sugar
6 tsp salt
3 tsp pepper
canola or vegetable oil

Cut chicken into bite size pieces. Whisk eggs in large bowl. Add the chicken to the eggs, and let marinate in the fridge for about 2 hours.
Mix flour, sugar, salt and pepper in another large bowl.  Heat about 2-3 inches of oil in a pan over medium heat until when you sprinkle water on it, it sizzles. Once the oil is ready, remove the chicken from the egg mixture and coat in dry mixture. Do about 10 pieces at a time, depending on size of your pan.  Add coated chicken to oil, and cook until golden brown. We checked the largest piece of chicken in each batch by cutting it in half  to make sure it had cooked all the way through.  Serve with your choice of sauce. I personally prefer some BBQ, but the kids like Ketchup and Ranch.


We'd love to see what what's cooking up in your kitchen. Link up a recipe below!

  3. They look like a much healthier version of chicken nuggets. I have a child with a peanut allergy so I appreciate the alternative recipe.

  4. Yum!Sounds awesome! BTW: Bisquik has a recipe for baked chicken nuggets. it would be interesting to try with this recipe...not that I'm the healthiest chef/eater, it just means you can cook them all at once. ;o)

    Here is the link for the cooking instructions:

    They have you drizzle nuggets w/melted 40% vegetable oil spread, but I know I have just spritzed them w/non-stick cooking spray (read Pam). We cook them on the Pampered Chef large rectangle stone. Just sayin'.
