BBQ Chicken Nuggets

BBQ Chicken Nuggets/ Wings

Have a craving for BBQ wings but don't want to spend $30 or more by going out to eat? Then I have a solution for you! 

With the craving for BBQ wings and ranch sauce, but without spending a fortune at AppleBee's or Buffalo Wild Wings, I decided to try it my own way. These were a huge hit with my family, kids, and tasted better than going out to a restaurant for wings. 

Boneless Chicken Thighs or Wings
BBQ Sauce of your choice
Shore Lunch Original Recipe Batter (that is originally made to use with fish)
Ranch (If you like your BBQ Chicken with a ranch sauce)
Celery (Optional)

1. Heat up the oil in either a deep fryer or a stove top fryer
2. (If you are using chicken thighs) Cut up the chicken thighs into 1 inch wide pieces
3. Pour the box of Shore Lunch into either a bowl that has a cover or a one gallon bag. Toss the chicken in with the Shore Lunch until fully coated. 
4. Drop the chicken slowly into the fryer and keep an eye on them until they are brown and crispy. Remember that if you cook them too long that they will because dry. 
5. Once fully cooked, place on a paper towel to let the excess oil to drip off. 
6. In a bowl, toss the strips with BBQ sauce and serve alone, with a ranch or blue cheese sauce.
