What's for Dinner? Chicken Nuggets

My 5-year old loves chicken nuggets.  Pennies on a Platter posted a recipe for chicken nuggets a few days ago that contained powdered sugar.  I had to try it.  Here is the recipe:

Chicken Nuggets (from Pennies on a Platter)

1 1/2 cups milk
2 eggs
3 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces (I used approx 16 chicken tenders and cut them into thirds)
2 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup powdered sugar
4 tsp salt
3 tsp black pepper

Combined milk and eggs in a large bowl and place chicken in mixture to coat. (The original recipe called for allowing this to marinate for 2 to 4 hours, but I didn't leave it in there that long.)  Mix remaining ingredients in a gallon sized Ziploc bag and toss chicken to coat it.  Zip bag and toss until chicken is well coated.  Fry in oil until done.  Once they were done, I placed them on a paper towel to remove the oil and then put them into a 150 degree oven to keep them warm until time to serve.  The remainder can be frozen and then warmed in an oven.
