McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets (cdkitchen)

vegetable oil, for frying
1 egg
1 c water
1 c flour
2 t salt
1 t onion powder
1/2 t MSG (Accent)
1/4 t black pepper
1/8 t garlic powder
4 chicken breast fillets

Beat egg and then combine with water in a small, shallow bowl. Stir. Combine flour, salt, MSG, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder in a one gallon size zip lock bag. Pound each of the breast fillets with a mallet until about 1/4″ thick. Trim each breast fillet into bite sized pieces. Coat each piece with the flour mix by shaking in the zip lock bag. Remove and dredge each nugget in the egg mix, coating well.Return each nugget to the flour/seasoning mix. Shake to coat. Put nuggets, bag and all, in the freezer for at least an hour. Cover and refrigerate remaining egg mix. After freezing, repeat the above coating process. Deep fry the McNuggets at 375 F for 10 – 12 min or until browned and crispy (cook only about 9 at a time.) Drain on brown paper bags (NEVER drain fried foods on paper towels unless you want them to be soft and soggy!).
