I briefly worked at a CFA during college. It was the only time I had heard of the place and once I moved, I haven't had the opportunity to eat at one again. Let me tell you it was the best 3 months of my life. I got to eat fried chicken, all day every day. As much fried chicken as I wanted and, sadly, was about 50 pounds skinner. I loved every single nugget I put in my mouth.
That's what she said.
But now I must live too North for their southern, bible-thumping, anti-gay chicken, since we have none up here. Which is fine by me b/c now I can make my own.

This is the best homemade version of the real thing. Served with honey mustard sauce and biscuits I could almost believe I was in college again, glow-in-black-light pink hair, tongue ring, beer bong and all.
2 skinless and boneless chicken breasts
1 cup milk
1 1/4 cups flour
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
oil for frying
~In a medium bowl whisk together egg and milk. Trim fat from chicken and dice into large cubes. Place chicken in egg mixture, cover and allow to marinate in the fridge 2-4 hours.
~In a large bowl combine flour, powdered sugar, salt and pepper. Dredge chicken until thoroughly coated. Meanwhile, over medium high heat, heat oil in a large, high sided skillet until hot or 375°. There should be 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch or so in the pan. Drop 10-12 nuggets into the oil and fry until golden brown and the chicken is completely cooked through, turning several times. Repeat until all the chicken is cooked. Drain on a paper towel. Serve warm. For that real CFA touch, make sure you say "God bless you" as you plate the nuggets for your family.
