Chick-Fil-A Chicken Nuggets

Dip in Chick-Fil-A Sauce and enjoy!

If you are familiar with Chick-Fil-A then you know how amazing their chicken nuggets are!  I found this copy cat recipe on Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts and I just had to try it out.  Pete loved them and now he wants me to make them all the time.  These are a must try! Serve with waffle fries to make your Chick-Fil-A meal complete.


Chick-Fil-A Chicken Nuggets

Adapted from Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts


2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup milk
1 egg
1 1/4 cups flour
2 Tbls powdered sugar
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
Kelapo coconut oil for frying


Trim and cut the chicken into bit sized pieces.  Whisk egg and milk together. Place chicken in milk mixture, and cover. Let stand for 2-4 hours in the fridge.
Place 2 inches of coconut oil into a deep pan or use a deep fryer.  Heat over medium high heat until the oil is hot (375 degrees).  If you don’t have a thermometer you can see the oil is hot enough by placing the handle of a wooden spoon straight up and down in the center of the pot.  If bubbles start to form around the spoon, your oil is hot and you are ready.
In a zip-lock bag mix together flour, powdered sugar, salt and pepper. Remove chicken from mix, and place in the flour mixture.  Shake to coat.  Put about 8 nuggets into the pan.  It depends on how big your pan is for how many you can fit in.  Just be careful not to overcrowd.  Cook for about 1 minute on each side, or until golden brown.  Remove chicken and drain on a paper towel.  You could place on a rack in a hot oven to keep them warm if you are making a lot of them.
Serve with your favorite Chick-Fil-A inspired dipping sauce.  I love using Chick-Fil-A Sauce! It’s my favorite and we had some left over so we used that for our sauce and the meal was amazing!
