Chick Fil A Chicken Nuggets
Who here loves Chik-fil-A? My entire family is obsessed, and I’d be lying if I said we didn’t go at least a few times each month. 😉 The hubby and I love their customer service and feel like they are the best fast-food chain around. The employees are always so nice, and the kiddos love playing in their clean playground areas. But most importantly, their food is top notch!! My kids’ favorite menu item is their Chicken Nuggets, so when I saw a copycat recipe from My name is Snickerdoodle, I knew I had to give it a try.
I only made a few changes, but I agree that they taste just like those from the restaurant! They require just a handful of common ingredients that you most likely already have on hand, and they only take about 30 minutes from start to finish! That’s even less time than it would take to load up the family and drive to the nearest Chick-fil-A, so it’s definitely a win-win situation. Now, I just need to learn how to make their Chik-fil-A sauce because that stuff is so addicting. 😉
How to Make Copycat Chick Fil A Nuggets:
This recipe is simple and one the kids will love!! Don’t be surprised when you see there is powdered sugar in the batter because I feel like it’s the secret ingredient. Here is what you’ll need to do to make these delicious nuggets.
- Cut up chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces.
- Add milk and egg to a bowl and whisk together, then set aside.
