Knock Off Chicken Minis

I made these rolls to go with our beef stew dinner.
There were tons leftover which inspired lunch the next day.  If you don't already know that I am obsessed with Chick-fil-A, you will now. *smile*  Megan loves their chicken minis so I set out to recreate them.  

The first thing I did was make up a batch of honey butter.  

1/2 cup soft butter
1/8 cup honey
Mix together.  

Meanwhile cut your rolls almost completely in half.  Place into a baking dish and coat the top with the honey butter. I had a ton leftover that will be used on our cornbread when we have chili later in the week.  Anyway, place the rolls into a low heat oven.  I believe I had it set at about 225*. 

I cut up one chicken breast that I coated with salt and pepper.  Next I set up my breading station.  
Dip the chicken into milk wash.

1 egg
1 cup milk
Beat together.  

Dip your chicken into the milk wash. You'll want to let the excess milk wash drip off some.  (I use to work at Chick-fil-A and once they dip the chicken into the milk wash they let it sit on a wire rack for a moment to let the excess drip off.) 

Next you coat your chicken in the season coating.

1 1/4 cup flour
2 Tbs powdered sugar
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp paprika

Shake off excess coating and add to hot oil that is heated to 350*.  Cook the chicken until you reach your desired brown color.  Approximately 3-4 minutes.
Slide a nugget into your hot roll and enjoy!
I also made hand-cut waffle fries and of course I had serve it with sweet tea!  Healthy... no. Yummy... yes! We prefer the real deal, but as a substitute this is a keeper. 

May your day be filled with joy in the journey!
