  1. Cut the chicken into nugget sized peices
  2. Cover the chicken in the buttermilk with the Tabasco sauce overnight.
  3. Fill the pan with the oil and over medium high heat. The Oil should not be more than half was up the sides of the pan. Remember that oil expands when heated. You want the oil to heat to 350 degrees.
  4. Fill a plastic bag with 1/2 cup Flour,1/2 cup of Corn Starch,1 tbs Paprika,1 tbs Garlic Powder, 1 tbs Onion Powder,1/2 tbs dried Tarragon, 1/2 tbs dried Thyme, 1/2 tbs ground mustard, 1/4 tbs dried Sage.
  5. shake the bag pretty well to mix the ingredients.
  6. Put 4-5 nuggets in the bag and shake to coat the chicken.
  7. Take the nuggets out of the bag one at a time and and tap the extra flour off before placing in the pan.
  8. Fry the chicken until for about 6-7 minutes.
  9. Scoop the chicken out with a slotted spoon and drain them on paper towel. Salt as soon as you get them out.

      I have my own version of chicken nuggets which my kid loves. This would give me an alternative way of making then. Variety is needed for kids as we all know! :)
