Exceptional Chicken Nuggets

I had the privilege of hosting a baby shower for my best friend Megan this weekend! I am so happy that we finally have a home where we can have people over. This party was so fun!

 Meg and her hostesses!
 The lovely ladies!
So many good friends!
 I love my 3Bs!!

These Chicken nuggets are SOO good. They are a copycat recipe of Chick-fil-a nuggets. I don't think they taste like them, but when I asked my hubby he said they were better. The pickle juice is such a surprise ingredient, but it really is delicious! The original recipe I used came from one of my Mom's paleo recipes she found on Pinterest so if you would like that one click here

Exceptional Chicken Nuggets
4-6 chicken tenders
1/2 cup pickle juice
2 Tbsp heavy cream
1 egg
1 Tbsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 cup panko
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup coconut oil
Marinate chicken in pickle juice for at least 4 hours. You should cut the tenders into nuggets before adding the marinate, I didn't so I had to cut them later.
 Mix together seasonings
Mix seasonings into panko and flour.
 Whisk together cream and egg.
 Drain pickle juice from chicken tenders. (Leave a few of those pickles in there they will be yummy fried too!)
 Add cream and egg mixture to chicken tenders and allow them to sit for 5 minutes.
 Drain most of egg mixture off of the chicken and pour into the flour mixture. 
 Stir until the chicken is coated.
 Heat coconut oil and fry the chicken nuggets (and the few pickles) for 2 minutes on each side.

 Remove and drain on paper towels.
 Serve with ketchup or honey mustard. I made Srirancha ketchup!
