Just like Chick-Fil-A Nuggets

20 Dec

This recipe could save you a few trips to Chick-Fil-A.  Although they would be better with a side of waffle fries and lemonade.  Yesterday when making the Chicken Noodle Soup, we saved some of the boiled chicken.  My Mom wanted to make Pancake Chicken Nuggets to serve with the soup.  This is a recipe that my mom learned from her mother-in-law, my grandma or DoDo as we all call her.  This is a dish that mom remembers DoDo making and she loved it.  We decided that the chicken tastes like Chick-Fil-A nuggets.

Coat all of the chicken before you start frying.  Your fingers can get quite messy from the batter!

DoDo’s Pancake Chicken Nuggets

  • 4-5 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
  • 3 Cups Complete Pancake Mix (We used Hungry Jack Light & Fluffy)
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 Cups Milk
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Salt
  1. Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil.  Season the water with a little salt and pepper.  Add chicken and boil for 30 minutes or until cooked fully.
  2. Once cooked, remove the chicken and let cool.  Cut the chicken into small nugget size pieces.
  3. Beat 3 eggs with the milk in a bowl.
  4. Add your pancake mix in a separate bowl.
  5. Coat your chicken in the egg/milk mixture and then the pancake batter.  Coat all chicken pieces before frying.
  6. In a skillet, add 1 inch of oil and heat it.
  7. Once the oil is hot, slowly add the pieces of chicken in.  Be careful!
  8. After about 3 minutes, turn the chicken so that it can brown the other side.
  9. Remove the chicken once both sides are brown.  It doesn’t need much time in the oil because the chicken is already cooked.
  10. Cool the chicken on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb the excess oil.
  11. Sprinkle the chicken with salt while it is cooling.
  12. Store the chicken nuggets in a warm oven until serving.
  13. Enjoy!
