3 boneless chicken breasts
1 cup dill pickle juice
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk

1 cup all purpose flour
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt (can use powder)
1/2 teaspoon onion powder (can use salt)
1/2 teaspoon celery salt (can use powder)

Oil for frying (I used vegetable)

Prepare chicken at least 4 hours before cooking. Wash and filet breasts, then pound with a neat hammer to about 1/2 inch thickness. Place in a ziploc bag with pickle juice and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

Place oil in a heavy frying pan about 1/4 inch deep. heat over medium heat.

Whisk together eggs and milk in a medium bowl. The combine dry ingredients in A large plastic bag. If making nuggets, slice breasts into about 2 inch pieces. Place chicken a few pieces at a time into egg wash, then place into flour mixture and shake to coat. When oil is hot, place chicken in pan and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side, just till the perfect golden brown. Remove from oil to drain on paper towels before serving. Repeat with remaining chicken.

**Note on spices-if you are trying to cut back on salt, you can use all powders for the onion, garlic and celery, I used what I had in the cabinet and found the ratio of 2 salts and one powder worked well.
