Pinspiration in the Kitchen- Sweet Chicky Nuggets

In light of some recent drama with a certain fast food chain, I thought it would be appropriate to finally try out a copycat recipe of theirs that I have had pinned for a while now.  This one has just been hanging out on my Restaurant Knock Off Recipes to Try board for maybe a year or so, waiting for me to dust if off.  (I have known for a while where I do not want my money going to however indirectly that may be.  Don't be fooled, folks. This has nothing to do with freedom of speech rights.)  

Anyways... back to the copycat recipe. ;) 
I found this recipe on the My Name is Snickerdoodle blog.  Click here for the recipe.
Please note, you need to marinate the chicken chunks in an egg/milk mixture for 2-4 hours so plan accordingly for that.  ;)  I may not have, and we may have had a very late dinner this evening because of that...

I did not notice a huge difference between my homemade sweet chicky nuggets and the ones that people claim they can't live without from that chain that will remain unnamed. (Psssstttt... I think it may just a little dramatic to say you can't live without a certain fast food.  In fact, you may shorten your lifespan by eating too much of it.  ;) )
My husband loved them.  He actually stated that they tasted just like them, but more like actual chicken??  Yes, real food you all.  Not fast food.

Oh, and my homemade sweet tea is the bomb.  Just saying.
