It was inspired by a recipe on buzzfeed.com
4-5 chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces or fingers, seasoned with salt & pepper
1 1/2 cups rice milk
1/2 cup dill pickle juice
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons powdered sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 cup canola or vegetable oil, divided
Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce
1 cup plain parve sour cream, like Tofutti brand
2 Tablespoons yellow mustard
2 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
4 Tablespoons honey
Whisk together egg, rice milk and pickle juice, and pour into a large bowl or zipper bag. Add chicken pieces and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours. Combine flour, sugar, salt and pepper in a large paper or zippered bag. Shake to combine. Remove chicken from the marinade, shake off a bit and add into the bag. Shake the bag to coat the chicken completely. Heat half of the oil to 350 degrees in a large skillet. Gently place chicken pieces into the oil with tongs. Do this in 2 batches, as you don’t want to overcrowd the pan. Cook the chicken for 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown on one side. Turn the chicken over and allow to cook for 3-4 more minutes. Remove to a paper-towel lined plate. Heat the remaining oil and continue with the other half of the chicken pieces.
Stir together the honey mustard dipping sauce ingredients, and serve with the hot chicken bites.
Delicious even at room temperature
