Description

An updated version of an early American recipe that has been in my family since the 1800's. The original version of this dish is mentioned on at least one episode of 'Little House on the Prairie.'

Ingredients
  • 4 cups oil for frying
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ⅔ cup white sugar
  • ⅓ cup ground cinnamon
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into bite-size pieces
Directions
  1. 1. Heat oil in skillet or fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Arrange paper towels on a baking sheet.
  2. 2. In a medium bowl, beat together eggs, milk , and honey; set aside. Combine flour, sugar, and cinnamon in a large resealable plastic bag; shake until blended. Dip chicken in egg mixture, and then add to flour mixture. Seal the bag, and shake to coat chicken with flour mixture.
  3. 3. Place 10 to 12 coated chicken nuggets into hot oil. Cook till done, about 7 to 10 minutes (nuggets will be a dark bronze color). Remove nuggets from oil, and drain well on paper towels. Repeat till all nuggets are cooked.
