  1. Pound chicken breasts till they are thin enough for your taste. (I find a lot of breasts are really too thick for a sandwich so I pound out the thick part a little) Cut into chunks if you want nuggets.
  2. Place chicken in plastic bag with pickle juice and marinate for an hour (preferably overnight).
  3. Mix up eggs in seperate bowl for the egg wash.
  4. Mix flour and remaining spices in another shallow bowl.
  5. Remove chicken from the pickle juice maranade and drain well. Dip into the egg wash and then into the flour mixture.
  6. Fry the chicken however you prefer here. I pan fried mine in a few tablespoons of oil and it turned out fine. Chick-Fil-A deep fries theirs in a pressure cooker, so you can try that if you are feeling adventurous.
