Touchdown Chicken

Friday, September 11, 2009

Are you ready for some football?  My whole family is happy that football season is here. It's a tradition to serve finger food while we watch our games on Sunday. Touchdown Chicken is a great little treat because it's quick to make and very satisfying.

Touchdown Chicken

2 lbs. chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces
2/3 c. flour
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. poultry seasoning
2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 c. milk
oil for frying

Trim fat from chicken and cut into bite size pieces.

In medium bowl, mix flour, paprika, poultry seasoning, salt, garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper.  Dip chicken nuggets in flour mixture and set on wire rack for about 5 minutes.

Heat oil in frying pan over medium heat.  In small bowl, pour milk into bowl.  Dip nuggets in milk and then in flour mixture. Make sure nuggets are coated completely.

Fry chicken nuggets in oil over medium heat until all sides are golden brown.  Serve with Simple Garlic Dip.

Lovely. When i make my nuggets or breaded chicken bits, I soak the chicken in buttermilk...and then do the conveyor belt thing of flour, eggs and breadcrumbs. This looks lovely too.
