Copycat Chik-Fil-A Chicken Nuggets

I don't eat at Chik-Fil-A very often, BUT when I do...I always go for the chicken nuggets. When I found a recipe for them, I knew they were a "HAVE TO TRY". I found the recipe HERE and they totally and completely tasted just like the real thing...THEY are amazing!!! Now I have no reason to ever go to Chik-Fil-A for chicken nuggets again.

Copycat Chik-Fil-A Chicken Nuggets

3 eggs
1 c. milk
1 c. buttermilk
8 boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces
1 1/4 c. flour
2-3 T powdered sugar
2 t. salt
1 t. pepper
1/2 t. chili powder
1 t. garlic powder
oil for frying

In a large bowl, whisk milks and eggs together. Put the milk mixture and the chicken in a ziplock bag and soak in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Make sure all the chicken is covered. In another bowl combine the dry ingredient and whisk together. In a heavy pan, heat oil. Remove chicken from fridge and place about 8 -10 pieces in flour mixture. Coat completely then place into the hot oil. Cook each side for 3 minutes or until golden brown. Place chicken on a paper towel to soak up any oil. Repeat until all chicken is cooked. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.



  1. I can't wait to try these, I love a good clone recipe.

  2. I love how these look. I'm sure they will taste great also. Thanks.

  3. I will give a try at your chicken nuggets recipe thanks for sharing ! :)

  4. I made these tonight. They were excellent! My only issue was I bought the 8 chicken breasts, but I had to make the flour mixture two more times. Otherwise it was very good and would make it again.
