Homemade Chicken Nuggets

My kids love when we get to have these for dinner.  They will eat restaraunt nuggets, but these ... these they eat a ton of. Plus with these, you can add whatever seasonings you want to them.  Make them your own!

Homemade Chicken Nuggets
4 skinless bonelss chicken breats ~ cut into chunks or strips 
1 - 1 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon italian seasoning
1 tablespoon oregano 
1 teaspoon season salt {or us 1/2 teaspoon creole seasoning}
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 vegetable oil ~ more if needed

Dip options:
Honey Mustard
Fry sauce

Mix flour and all seasonings together.  Cut thawed chicken breats into chunks or strips, which ever you desire.  Add chicken to flour mixutre and mix till chicken is well coated with flour. Once oil is well heated, add chicken pieces.{check readiness of oil by getting fingertips a little wet, and sprinkle over oil.  If oil starts to pop, it is ready to fry!}  Fry chicken for about 2-3 minutes and rotate till chicken is cooked through. If over cooked, batter will be a deep golden color and chicken will be really dry. Remove chicken from oil and place on a plate lined with paper towels or napkins {this way it soaks up any "extra" oil from chicken}
