Drain chicken pieces and set aside.
In a large skillet heat oil over medium high heat. (watch that the oil doesn't get too hot! Do NOT walk away from oil!!)After about 3 minutes, oil should be hot enough. Note: Check oil by dusting in a few droplets of flour into skillet. If flour sizzles, oil is ready! Working in batches, cook your nuggets until golden brown on one side.Flip over and cook until golden brown. Drain nuggets on paper towels. Repeat until all nuggets are cooked and fried.Serve immediately with sauces.
