I’m a big fan of copycat recipes – after all, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.” Chick-Fil-A nuggets are super popular, but sadly they contain MSG, white flour and some ingredients I can’t really pronounce. After hearing so many friends rave about them, my kids and I decided to come up with a copycat version we can eat!
The chicken is marinated in pickle juice and buttermilk, providing a tangy flavor and making the meat exceptionally juicy. The nuggets are then coated with a grain-free flour mixture featuring lots of spices. I chose tallow or lard (from good sources) as the frying fat because they withstand high heats without oxidizing.
I hope you enjoy them!
