Ingredients

  • 1 lb chicken breast or cutlets, cut in tenders
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups superfine breadcrumbs
  • salt, pepper, paprika to taste for flour
  • Nashville Hot Oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1/2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 3 tablespoons cayenne
  • 1 cup of vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoon vinegar/Bubbie’s Pickle Juice
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • Salt to taste
  • Serve with Bubbie’s Bread & Butter pickles

Directions

To begin, cube your chicken and place in a container or bag with buttermilk and preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

In a deep dish/wide plate add your breadcrumbs, flour, salt, pepper, and paprika to set up your assembly. Next, remove your chicken pieces from the buttermilk and place in the breadcrumb
mixture one by one, coating entirely.

Place on a baking sheet with parchment, spread apart. drizzle on a little olive oil over the coating nuggets to get crispy in the oven. Place in oven for 20-35 minutes until cooked through and crispy.

In the meantime, make your oil by heating up oil on medium-high heat. In a separate bowl, mix all your dry ingredients. Once your oil is hot, remove from heat and add in your dry ingredients to the hot oil. Mix well and add your vinegar and hot sauce.

Once your chicken is ready and crisp, dunk your nuggets in the hot oil and cool on the baking sheet with paprika and salt to top. Serve with pickles!
