Sweet Turkey Nuggets Recipe


2 skinless and boneless turkey breasts

1 cup of milk

1 egg

1 1/4 cups of flour

2 TBSP powdered sugar

2 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

Peanut or canola oil


In a medium bowl whisk the egg and stir in milk. Trim away any fat from turkey. Cube turkey into bite size pieces. Place turkey in milk mixture and cover. Let the turkey marinated for 2-4 hours in refrigerator. This will make the turkey tender. In a gallon size resealable bag combine flour, powdered sugar, salt and pepper. Seal and shake.

Place about two inches of oil in a medium deep pot. Over medium high heat, heat oil until hot. Test oil by dropping a few drops of water into it. You want it to sizzle not pop. Adjust heat if necessary. Using tongs remove cut turkey from milk mixture and place in flour mixture. Seal and shake until nuggets are completely coated. Place 6-8 nuggets into hot oil and cook until golden brown, turning halfway through once edge of turkey begins to turn white. About 1 minute for each side. Remove and drain on paper towel. Repeat until all nuggets are cooked through. Serve with your favorite sauce.
