  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup dill pickle juice
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp celery salt
  • Vegetable oil, for frying


  1. Cut the chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces and place them in a large resealable plastic bag. Pour in the pickle juice and seal the bag. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the milk and egg.
  3. In another bowl, mix together the flour, powdered sugar, paprika, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and celery salt.
  4. Drain the pickle juice from the chicken and discard. Add the chicken to the bowl with the milk mixture and toss to coat.
  5. Remove the chicken from the milk mixture and dredge in the flour mixture, pressing the flour onto the chicken to coat well.
  6. Heat about 1 inch of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the chicken to the pan in batches, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Fry for 2-3 minutes per side or until golden brown and cooked through.
  7. Remove the chicken from the pan with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
  8. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce and enjoy!

Recipes Tips

If you want your nuggets to be extra crispy, you can double coat them in the flour mixture by dredging them in the milk mixture and flour mixture twice.

Make sure the oil is hot before adding the chicken to the pan to ensure they cook evenly and don't get soggy.

If you don't have a large skillet, you can use a deep fryer instead.
