  2. In a heavy bottom pan, heat 2 inches of peanut oil over medium heat until a deep fry thermometer registers 325 degrees F, or until small drops of water sizzle and evaporate.

  3. While the oil is heating, whisk the egg, milk, pickle juice* (if using) and 2 tablespoons water in a baking dish. Then whisk both flours, the malted milk powder, confectioners sugar, baking soda, dry mustard, the remaining ½ tsp paprika, and 1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper in another dish.

  4. Dip the chicken first in the egg mixture.

  5. Then dredge in the flour mixture coating completely.

  6. Fry the chicken in the hot oil until brown for about 4 minutes, adjusting the heat if needed. Drain on paper towels.

  7. Serve on lightly toasted buns with desired toppings and CHICK FIL A SAUCE, pickles, lettuce, and even a slice of cheese!
