I LOVE Chick-Fil-A chicken nuggets! I don’t know why, but they just make me happy! They taste great and are probably just a smidge healthier than a Big Mac. 🙂 Wednesday night I was out of dinner ideas when a friend on Facebook posted about Chick-Fil-A. Instant craving. Then I remembered that I had pinned a copy cat Chick-Fil-A chicken nugget recipe! AND…I just so happened to have everything I needed to make them! I switched just a couple of things up to accommodate our tastes and what we had on hand. So here you go!
In a bowl beat one egg with one cup of milk,
Next trim the fat off of two boneless, skinless chicken breasts and cut them into bite size chunks.
Put the chunks in the egg/milk mixture, cover and marinade for 2-4 hours. I could not believe how tender and moist this made the chicken! It was awesome!
In a ziplock bag mix 1 1/4 cups flour, 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar, 2 teaspoons of salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper. I also added about a teaspoon of my favorite season salt. 🙂
Use a fork or slotted spoon to put the marinaded chicken into the flour mixture. Make sure the ziplock bag is well zipped and shake away! You want to make sure that all the chunks are covered well in the flour mixture.
Heat about 1.5-2 inches of oil (we just used vegetable oil) to about 375°F. This is about a medium-medium high heat. Cook on each side for about 1-1.5 minutes. You don’t want your oil too hot or your nuggets will burn before they are completely cooked. Too cool and your nuggets will be soggy. Drain on a paper towel.
Serve with your favorite sauce (mine is honey mustard) and side and enjoy!
This recipe got RAVE reviews from my family. My niece told me they were “DE-LISH-OUS!” and my nephew told me I was “a great cook”. My boys gobbled them up and I couldn’t stop snacking on them while I was cooking!
I will hold the same stance as the original recipe poster…I’m not claiming this will taste EXACTLY like Chick-Fil-A, but they are really good and will definitely cure a craving! For sure a Pinterest PASS!
