To a medium size bowl, add the chicken. Add the salt and pepper and mix together until the chicken is coated.
To the bowl, add flour and mix together until the pieces of chicken are completely coated with the flour. Set aside for just a moment.
Place a cooling rack on top of a large plate
(this is where the nuggets will be placed after removing them from the skillet)
In a large skillet, add canola oil (depending on the size of your skillet you may need to add more oil so that it's about 1/2 inch deep in the pan).
Heat the skillet on medium heat.
Sprinkle a small bit of flour in the oil, and when it starts to sizzle add the pieces of flour coated chicken to the skillet.
Watch the chicken closely and turn each piece over as the sides start to turn a golden color.
When all sides of the nuggets turn a golden color and the chicken is thoroughly cooked, transfer the chicken on to the cooling rack.
Transfer the chicken from the skillet on to a cooling rack and salt to taste.
Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce or gravy.
