Homemade Buttermilk Chicken Nuggets

I've been wanting to make chicken nuggets at home for forever. I kept thinking they would be more complicated or time consuming than they actually were. We loved these chicken nuggets and thought they cooked beautifully. This recipe is adapted from The Comfort of Cooking.

1 cup buttermilk
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
4 cups canola oil
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp paprika

Cut the chicken into 1 inch pieces. Place the chicken into a ziplock bag and add the buttermilk, salt and pepper. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 day.  Pour oil into a large pot and heat over medium high heat. In a shallow pan mix together the flour, garlic powder and paprika.  Take a few pieces of chicken and toss it in the flour mixture, then dip back in the buttermilk then again the flour then place in the oil.  Let cook for 4-5 minutes or until the nuggets are cooked through and brown. Continue to fry the nuggets, 7-8 pieces at a time, then remove and let drain on a paper towel covered plate. Serve warm.
