I have a confession to make.

I used to loooooooooooooooooove Chick-Fil-A® chicken nuggets. I would eat there every chance I got.

Then, I went gluten-free in 2012 and never ate there again. I would eat there even in my real food days on occasion. Nothing crazy, but a little “treat” every once in a while. Of any fast food, it was my favorite (along with Chipotle).

Over time, I discovered just how bad processed and refined foods made me feel and I never went back to my favorite fast food restaurants (except Chipotle. It still works for my body). But that doesn’t stop the occasional hankering for previous comfort foods, now does it. And on a side note, can someone please explain to me how, after almost a decade of eating at Taco Bell, I still have a random craving for a nacho supreme every now and then?!

So, you can imagine how super stoked I was when my friend came up with this amazing Copycat Chick-Fil-A® Chicken Nuggets recipe and then allowed me to share it here.

It. Is. Amazing.

Bring the fast food home to your kitchen with this copycat recipe. I can guarantee your family is going to LOVE it! It will probably become a regularly requested meal for your weekly meal plan.

Want More Fast and Easy Recipes?

One of my primary goals on this site is to make recipes that are easy for the average person to make and fast (or at least moderately fast). Our schedules have become so busy and food often takes a back burner. It’s no wonder so many of us do resort to quick foods — it’s just easier.

But, it’s not always better for our bodies. While I don’t completely shun fast food or processed foods, I do know that consuming them regularly is not going to lend itself to creating long-term health. That’s why I do my best to plan ahead and create recipes that are easy and simple. 

For lots of recipe ideas (everything from pantry staples to main dishes, to desserts), make sure you check out my recipe archive. We have over 500 recipes, all kitchen-tested and picky-eater approved. Visit the recipe library here.
