Chick-fil-A Nuggets with Sauce

Chick-fil-A Nuggets are a sore subject in our house because we are evenly divided between these nuggets and KFC popcorn chicken. As a mom, when we’re out and about to stop in a fast food option I tend to go with Chick-fil-A or In-n-Out just for small wins that make me feel like at least they seem freshest.

Chick-fil-A has become our non-burger favorite spot. It also helps that they make the best lemonade of all time (recipe coming soon). One of my only frustrations with them is the lines and the cost. Anytime we go there is a giant line in the drive-thru and with little kids in the car my patience is usually shorter than the wait.

We LOVE these Chick-fil-A nuggets and they're so easy to make!So when we buy these chicken nuggets I also drive through to get popcorn chicken to avoid hearing about the “I don’t like sweet nuggets” from the peanut gallery. Yes, Chick-fil-A nuggets have a hint of sweetness in them (recreated here with powdered sugar), I personally like them but given my options I would probably choose a less sweetened version of chicken nuggets.

The best and easiest copycat for Chick-fil-A Nuggets.

Tools Used in the making of these Chick-fil-A Nuggets:
Lodge Cast Dutch Oven: – I use this dutch oven for a lot of frying and braising.
Pig Tail Flipper: – I use this *almost* more than I use tongs in the kitchen. Flipping is so quick and doesn’t smash foods.
Spider Strainer: Love these strainers for quickly draining oil away and scooping out fried food.
Breadcrumbs: Great plain breadcrumbs, I normally use panko, but for this recipe I recommend these.
Breading Station: I use this because the pans are wide with a flat bottom. If you have small rectangular plates use those, I wouldn’t use curved bowls for breading stations as it could knock some breading off.

Author Sabrina Snyder


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 pound chicken breasts cut into 1" chunks
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3 inches of peanut oil


  1. In a food processor, add the breadcrumbs and process until very fine.
  2. In a large ziplock bag or a bowl add the chicken pieces, the milk and the eggs and combine. (I usually just close the bag and squish it together)
  3. Put the chicken in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.

  4. In a large dutch oven fill it 3 inches deep with peanut oil and heat to 365-375 degrees (medium high heat until a piece dropped in immediately bubbles up but doesn’t burn quickly).
  5. Put the breadcrumbs, flour, powdered sugar, Kosher salt, white pepper, chili powder in a bowl and whisk together.
  6. Dredge the chicken pieces in the flour mixture and let dry for a few minutes.
  7. Fry in batches (avoid crowding them) until golden brown (2-3 minutes) and remove to a sheet pan.

  8. Don’t drain on paper towels, it’ll create steam and soften the nuggets.

  1. Really liked the nuggets, I added some kosmos Q garlic Parmesan wing dust to the batter to add some flavor, if you’ve never tried it I highly recommend checking it out.

  2. Really good recipe. I was honestly so surprised how close this recipe is to the original. My partner and I made these tonight and we were shocked at how good everything turned out. One question though; what is the best way to store the leftovers? I want to eat this tomorrow and even share it with my neighbours

    1. Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. I like to reheat them in the oven so they don’t get chewy or rubbery. They should take around 10 minutes to reheat in a 350 degree oven. I’m so glad you enjoyed them.

  3. My 5 year old daughter told us she wants to work at Chik-fil-a when she grows up, so we made these nuggets and let her serve everyone. My husband said they were “the best chicken nuggets I’ve ever had” They definitely look like chik-fil-a nuggets and the taste is similar (a little more mild in flavor than chikfila). Frying stuff is so much work though- this is just a very occasional meal.

  4. Sorry but not even close and absolutely bland. I previously used a different recipe that was spot on but unfortunately lost it. Thought I’d try this one and was very disappointed.

    1. I added 1 Tbsp seasoned salt and 1/2 tsp black pepper to the egg-milk mixture. Then, I sprinkled salt on the nuggets after they were done frying. Very tasty.

  5. Yummy and delicious! I used boneless/skinless chicken thighs in place of the chicken breast because that’s all I had available I just made sure to make sure almost all of the fat was removed from the thighs. I did add half a cup of pickle juice to the egg and milk mixture. It came out so, so good I couldn’t stop eating it while I was cooking each batch. I also didn’t have peanut oil so I used avocado oil instead. yummy!

  6. OMG, I can’t believe how close these are to the real thing! I actually had a pack of Chick fil A BBQ sauce and I honestly could not taste too much difference AND I did not have/use peanut oil, nor the eggs, and I drained on paper towels. So, next time I’ll be sure to follow the directions totally and I’m certain I won’t be able to tell AT ALL, that I’m not eating the “real thang!” Thanks for such a great “copycat”?recipe.

  7. My grandson, who is 17, is a picky eater but loves Chic-fil-a nuggets and the Polynesian sauce. I made both your recipes for these last night and he loved them. Actually I don’t believe I’ve ever seen him eat so much. He said they were spot on and wants me to make them a couple times a week.
    The nearest Chic-fil-a to us is over an hour drive so you saved us a long drive plus the high cost of their nuggets. Thanks so much and can’t wait to try some of your other recipes.

  8. Followed recipe exactly but this tastes nothing like Chic fil a. It still tastes kinda decent, maybe i just need to play with it a little more

  9. These are SO GOOD!!!! Super easy and really delicious. My kids love Chick-Fil-A but we don’t go that after because the lines are always sooooo long, so now I can make them at home!! If you haven’t tried this recipe, what are you waiting for?? Amazing.

  10. These are spot on to the original, and the powdered sugar is the surprising secret ingredient. It’s shocking how many nuggets come from 1 lb of chicken, it’s equivalent to 4-5 Chick-Fil-A 12 piece orders.

  11. Best nuggets I have made at home. My husband said that in his opinion, they are better than Chick-Fil-A. Thanks for the recipe!

      1. What do you do with the liquid from the eggs and milk do you drain all that out from the chicken before adding to the dry ingredients?

    1. They won’t have the same crispiness but you can bake them. Bake at 400 for around 20-25 minutes or until golden brown, flipping once. Good luck!

  12. Just made these tonight with some home grown chicken. Also adapted to GF using GF breadcrumbs and GF flower. Turned out amazingly good. My wife loved them.

  13. as a vegetarian i missed chick fil a chicken so much! so i tried this with seitan instead of ground chicken. it was amazing!!!! i’m so happy i found this recipe!

  14. What can I say. Using quality organic ingredients, these knock the socks off the originals! The ONLY adjustment I made was to up the salt and chili powder just a bit. Don’t think I can eat the restaurant version ever again.

    1. I use JUST egg. It’s a delicious vegan egg that you can scramble, omelet and use for coating. It comes in a clear bottle with the yellow liquid. Imo, tastes better than real egg. Just add salt and pepper as you wish.

  15. I made this recipe tonight. OMG! So delicious! I wouldn’t change a thing. I served it with sweet potato fries and mixed up some honey and mustard for dipping.

    1. You can, but they will not be like they are in the restaurant. This recipe makes a surprising amount, so 2T gets distributed quite a bit. Splenda would probably make a good substitute.

  16. I got chick-fil-a a couple days before and had some extra Polynesian sitting in the fridge so I decided to make this.I ran down to the store down the street grabbed some chicken and potatoes (to make potatoes wedges).This recipe was super easy and simple to make.i hate making chicken because it always ends up raw in the middle but these came out moist,crunchy and deliciousss.when dipping these in my sauce I couldn’t tell the difference between these and the real thing.i’ll be making these again

    1. I’ve not personally tested so if you decided to try, I’d love to know how it turns out. Thanks!

    2. I’ve made these in the air fryer before! I just did the coating the same as listed in the recipe and then spritzed the air fryer with some oil, filled the bottom of the air fryer with some of the nuggets, and shook them around a bit so the oil got on them a little. Then, just check them periodically and spritz with more oil if they look too floury! They turned out great!

  17. Have you tried doing this with whole chicken breasts to make the chicken sandwich? Do you think it would turn out okay?

  18. Should I use nonfat milk, since that is the type in the ingredient list from Chick-fil-a? I’m really excited about trying this recipe. Thank you!

  19. My daughter found this recipe online and was excited for me to make it. I just finished making this recipe and it came out fantastic! My family and I agree that this is pretty darn close to the real thing, and will be making this on a regular! Thank you for such an awesome recipe!

  20. This is a great basic recipe that really inspired me! On my second try I cut the bread crumbs and flour down to 1/2 cup each and I didn’t process the crumbs. I think it’s a little closer! I also cut back to one egg and half the milk and it was plenty. Just make sure you put it in a container where all the chicken is covered.

  21. This recipe was great. Wondered if without the pickle juice, the strips wouldn’t be as tender. They were so good. Doubled the spices and made copycat canes sauce. My new go to….

  22. I have made this recipe many times now. I make a double batch of the dipping sauce, my husband loves it. One shortcut, is powdered buttermilk, I can make the chicken marinade any time I have a craving. I use the liquid smoke hint, as recommended in the sauce recipe dialogue, and I used my spice grinder to process the panko bread crumbs, as recommended for the chicken dredge. I keep my panko in the freezer just for this recipe. The only thing I add is a slight sprinkling or dusting of Knorr Aromat seasoning on the chicken nuggets after they are fried. The Aromat adds an umami touch to the finished chicken. This is a really easy and tasty copycat recipe.
    We use the leftover chicken on a salad too. Yummy cold.

    1. You can make a bigger batch and just take from there but once the chicken touches the mixture, you want to toss whatever you don’t use because you’ve got a contamination risk.

  23. We live in Taiwan and my husband was wanting an American-style meal. I made this for Father’s Day. I made A LOT of chicken, so we invited some South African friends over, too. Everyone raved about the chicken. My own children kept saying it was like Chick-fil-A, and our friends were asking what is Chick-fil-A, haha! I had to make my own panko, but I found a how-to online, too. Everything worked out wonderfully. I am so pleased to have found this recipe and I love how it’s worded. Easy to follow! Thanks, Sabrina! You’re the best!

  24. Not sure what I did wrong. I followed the recipe exactly and did not taste great at all. No flavor whatsoever. Really disappointing =(

  25. I looked around and saw a number of different recipes which seemed really complicated. Saw this one and it seemed so simple, so I gave it a try. First time I did it with Panko pulsed, but they were too crunchy and oil was to hot. Second time used the bread crumbs you suggested and they were awesome. Powdered sugar works so well, I added some Ancho chile powder to the breading.

    I asked my 9 year old daughter if they tasted like chix fil-a and she said”…yes, but better!”

  26. I can’t say these taste like Chik-Fil-A nuggets, but this is a solid recipe, and my family actually liked this recipe better than the real thing! The one thing I love is that they aren’t too salty, which is one of my issues with Chik-Fil-A nuggets. Paired with the knockoff Chik-Fli-A sauce, this is definitely a make again!

  27. What kinda breadcrumbs I use !? Should I make my own with wheat bread !? Or which one you recommend !?
    I am adding my ingredients to make this. My kids and my toddler 1 year old. Loveeee chick fil a chicken nuggets !
    For feedback ! I will love to see a video in how you make this chicken nuggets for clarifications. Thanks

    1. You can store it for up to 6 months and reuse. Just make sure that all the food particles have been filtered out before storing.

  28. Very excited to try this recipe but we don’t have peanut oil, only vegetable/canola. Will it still work? any suggestions?

  29. These were excellent and super easy to make! My husband says they taste exactly like Chick-fil-A, and my picky toddler ate lots of them.

  30. I have a question. It seems like there may be to much egg/milk liquid. Do I drain the extra liquid before putting in the breadcrumbs?

    1. You’ll be removing the chicken from the egg/milk mixture and dredging it into the flour/breadcrumbs mixture before frying. Hope this clears things up. Enjoy!

  31. I keep telling my son I need to find the website I found these nuggets on and send them money and roses. He has an eating disorder called arfid, short for avoidant restrictive food intake. He doesn’t eat much at all and he LOVES these nuggets!!!! I can’t thank you enough! Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!

  32. Sorry. I marinated mine in dill pickle juice because according to my sister and step daughter who both worked at Chick-Fil-A, they do use dill pickle juice.
    Attempted this before on my own and it sucked. With the exception of the pickle juice, I used this recipe and it was AMAZING!! I never thought about the sweetness of the nuggets! That made a huge difference for me in flavor.
    Drenching then in milk, than flour, letting it dry, than egg and bread crumbs made for a wonderfully crispy nugget! Hubby wants me to make them again soon!

    This recipe can be adapted for celiacs. I used gluten free 1 to 1 flour and 4C gluten free Panko bread crumbs that I ground up in the food processor.

    Made too much, but hubs and I are circling the leftovers like sharks on a feeding frenzy four hours later. Lol
    Thank you!

  33. I’m going to make this tomorrow. I looked up the ingredients on the Chick-Fil-A site & did not see pickle juice listed. Did see MSG & soybean oil which is disappointing. Glad to make them homemade without the MSG! My son loves their nuggets. Below is the list of ingredients from the site-

    Chicken (boneless, skinless chicken breast meat nuggets, salt, monosodium glutamate, sugar, spices, paprika, enriched bleached flour [with malted barley flour, niacin, iron, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid], sugar, salt, monosodium glutamate, nonfat milk, leavening [baking soda, sodium aluminum phosphate, monocalcium phosphate], spice, soybean oil, color [paprika], pasteurized nonfat milk, pasteurized egg, fully refined peanut oil [with dimethylpolysiloxane {an anti-foam agent} added])

    1. Hey there! So pickling spices are easily hidden in “sugar, spices” and using a pickle juice at home lets us achieve similar flavors without trying to reinvent the spice blend they’re using. While they don’t use a pre-made pickle juice they do use a lot of ingredients that create this flavor. I have had more people than I can count (many of them kids) swear by the flavor, I hope you try it and like it too!

          1. Can’t wait to try this recipe! As a healthier option, could I do these in an air fryer? Maybe bake and then air fry?

          2. I haven’t tested it this way before. If you decide to try, I’d love to know how it turns out. Thanks!

  34. This recipe was absolutely amazing! My family loved this recipe this is actually the 3 night I’m making it! All 6 of us couldn’t get enough of the chicken!

  35. Tried this recipe last night and it was delicious! I made one difference, that was to air fry. I am a Pampered Chef Consultant and our new Air Fryer is wonderful, I will never fry again!

  36. The recipe itself has a great flavor but the salt content is over the top, will try again with half the salt also gonna cut the sugar by a third and then it should be just right

  37. In complete seriousness, I have never made or had better chicken nuggets. 100% recommend to anyone who likes great chicken tenders/nuggets. I added a little extra salt, used black pepper instead of white pepper, and a bit extra chili powder. AMAZING.

  38. These are similar to general tso’s chicken. I actually followed this recipe by the book and it came out perfect. Thanks, Sabrina for the recipe.

  39. Really thankful for this recipe. Two of us are gluten free and can’t eat chick fil a fried nuggets anymore. I used King Arthur GF flour and GF breadcrumbs and my son says they are amazing! Thank you!!

  40. Awesome. My kids are raving- and they are teenagers so that says a lot. I didn’t have peanut oil just vegetable oil. They are delicious! My son can’t stop eating them and he never eats!

    1. I haven’t tested it but I would think you can flash freeze them on a cookie sheet and then place in a freezer-safe storage bag for up to 3 months.

  41. The nuggets were great with the crushed panko bread crumbs in the flour mixer. BUT, to get the chicken to taste exactly like Chick-fil-a, you have to brine the chicken in pickle juice. That is their secret ingredients to make them taste the way they do. Without the pickle juice, their just chicken nuggets.

    1. One of our staff members worked at Chick-fil-a all through High School and can confirm there is no pickle juice in the chicken nuggets 🙂

      1. Sam’s sells some that have pickle juice in them. No way fors chick fil a uses puckle juice. I’ve never tried adding sugar to the mix. Umm

      2. That’s because the nuggets (along with everything else) come pre-marinated now. They used to be soaked in pickle juice.

    2. I cant wait to try this recipe because it is NOT brined in pickle juice. My die hard chick-fil-a loving son loves the nuggets but cant stand the strips. From what I understand they do brine the strips in pickle juice but not the nuggets. I tried a recipe using pickle juice & my son who also despises dill pickles hated it. He easily picked up on the faint pickle taste & said they did not taste like chick-fil-a. So hoping he loves this recipe!!!

    1. I worked there too and there is absolutely no pickle juice in the chicken. The chicken breasts come plain and frozen, at the store its thawed, put in a solution of egg wash (buttermilk and eggs) where it sits in the cooler for a few hours. It’s then tossed in the breading and fried. The end, and no pickle juice

      1. My ex husband worked for the company that delivered the frozen chicken. I was brined in pickle juice and seasoned before frozen and sent to the stores.

        1. This is what I thought, because there it doesn’t seem possible that the ingredients listed could produce that slight tang taste.

        1. It was good but idk if it was chick fila good. my first time using peanut oil i had it on like level 7 but it seemed like the chicken browned pretty quickly. Anything doing wrong? i dont have a dutch oven. I do have a cast iron but i just used a skillet.

  42. This recipe was perfect! The ingredients were inexpensive and were totally worth getting rid of the drive thru wait! I substituted chili powder for paprika and the white pepper for black pepper and it still came out tasting like Chick-Fil a and it was amazing! 5 Stars!

  43. Thank for you this dish.
    I tried my best to find a way to increase the flavor but each batch was bland. More salt was added and I tried Cajun seasoning. The meat and coating were bland for each flour batch I made.
    I might try to use pickle or olive juice then leave it overnight in the fridge. Like a brine? I’m not giving up on this recipe because I did like the coating and my kids did eat their protein portion for the meal. Maybe peanut oil would change the flavor as well since all I had was canola and olive oil??
    Again Thanks for all your hard work making these dishes and posting them??

      1. I need a *close enough* substitute for the peanut oil due to two of my children developing peanut allergies in the last three years. TIA.

  44. I love love love your sense of humor!! Will be trying your nugget recipe tonight! Thanks so much!!

  45. I followed this to the letter and it’s AMAZING!!!!! I made 3 lbs. so I would have some left over, but my kids finished them off in seconds and begged for more! This is going to be a staple around our house. The flavor and texture are right on. I’d love to know how well they bounce back from being frozen. Once we have your recipe for Chickfila BBQ sauce we may never have to wait through the line again.

  46. Tried it, loved it & thanks for the recipe.
    I used canola oil instead because that’s what I had available. Can’t wait to tey it again with peanut oil.
    I’ve also heard that chick fil A uses pickle juice in the batter??? I’ll contiue to perfect this.

  47. DO NOT TRY IN AN AIR FRIER!!!! IT does not work, half of it burnt and the other half was raw . it looked really gross. Make sure you do what the direction says. If I could show you a picture you would probably hurl. If you’re smart enough you will know what that means you nincompoop.

      1. You want to pour enough peanut oil into your dutch oven so it reaches 3 inches deep. Hope this clears things up for you. Enjoy!

  48. I made these today and will not make again. Tasted nothing like the restaurant and the powdered sugar taste was disgusting.

  49. I happened to come across your website earlier this week and have made 3 dishes so far. Two of the Panda Express copycats (Mushroom chicken and chow mein) and my family LOVED them and the chick-fil-A nuggets last night. They also LOVED them. Thank you so much for posting these recipes. The recipes are very easy to follow. I am not a good cook at all so you have saved my kids and fiance from the terrible dinners I have put on the table in the previous weeks. Bless you Sabrina. I now look forward to cooking when I get home and no longer visit the drive-thru 🙂

      1. Those look good and I’m sure they’re tasty, but if you’re trying to re-create Chick-Fil-A, you lost me at the breadcrumbs. CFA’s chicken is breaded southern-style, with egg wash and flour, no crumbs.

  50. My kids actually loved this and they said they do taste like the ones from chick-fil-a. We wanted to thank you for a great recipe and saving us money. Its funny some of the ingredients are similar to KFC’s original recipe. Now if we could just recreate their BBQ sauce, for now we’re using Sweet Baby Ray’s.

  51. Sabrina, you’re a genius! I made these last night and they came out fantastic! We all couldn’t stop eating them. They were also tastier and fresher than what you buy at Chick fil A. My son ate some for breakfast this morning. He put them in buns! Needless to say, I will make these again and again and…(you get the idea).

  52. I thought these were great chicken nuggets but they didn’t taste like Chick-fil-A to me. They lacked the same sweet flavor and were in separate need of salt. That being said they were very good as a stand alone nugget recipe.

  53. Oh. My. Gosh. I made these for me and my sister for our school lunch and I’m actually blown away! They fried perfectly and tasted like actual heaven. It took me a while, but it was worth every chicken juice, eggy/floury handed, sweaty moment! I will definitely be making this again!!!!

      1. Chic-fil-a used to use pickle juice in their marinade for strips and nuggets, right up until Tyson took over their operation. Now it’s all pre-breaded. Shhh.

  54. I live in Saudi Arabia most of the year, so we suffer from Chick-fil-a withdrawals regularly. I made these tonight and we loved them! I followed the recipe to the letter and it actually made more than a pound and a half of nuggets! When I make them again, I will add salt to the chicken while it’s in the bag with the eggs and milk. We added salt when they were finished frying, but the chicken itself was a bit bland. The coating was spot on! And they looked just like the real thing! Great recipe!!!

  55. I used this recipe tonight and it came out awesome! Not exactly like Chick Fil A taste-wise but very, very good. The consistency and crispiness was spot on. It probably would’ve tasted closer to CFA if I’d had peanut oil, which I’ll try next time. Great job!

  56. I made this tonight with rave reviews!! Everyone absolutely loved them. My son especially who can’t get enough of Chick-fil-a nuggets. We don’t live that close to one it’s a town over, so this is perfect. Thank you!!

  57. I just made these today for my 2 1/2 year old who will not eat any meat, only chick fil a nuggets ?. He ate almost all of them! I made exactly as recipe states but will try to cut sugar a little next time. They are perfect tasting though! You did it again, girl! Thank you!

  58. This is the best copycat recipe ever! I have a friend who is going to love this! Her little boy will only eat chicken nuggets from there!

  59. Just found you and love your site. I am looking for Chick Fil A Dipping Sauce, hoping it is their Honey Mustard not their own sauce but cannot find it. I wish you post had a date on them it would make searching your archives easier.

    1. So sorry, your comment must have gotten stuck in my spam file as I am just now seeing it BUT it must be fate because I just posted the dipping sauce recipe 🙂 You can use the search bar if you’re having an issue finding recipes too.

  60. Yum! I am going to have to try this recipe soon. The Chick-fil-A here is always so busy, so we rarely go. But I do love their chicken! 😉

  61. I bet these are better than the “real deal!” Homemade is always fabulous! I’ll be waiting for that sauce recipe 🙂

  62. I have two teenagers that eat more of these than I can even tell you! I can’t wait to try this homemade version.

    1. How does chikfila use peanut oil with all these allergies? I’m trying this tonight. Minus the peanut oil. 

      I made it! Best ever!! Wow thank you. My family is so impressed! I’m mom of the year today!!! 

      1. I was trying to stay as authentic as possible and they do use peanut oil but you could definitely use any oil you have at home. I’m so glad you enjoyed it! It’s nice to get a mom win every now and then, lol!

      2. They use refined peanut oil. refined peanut oil is not considered an allergen since the refining process removes the protein that triggers the peanut allergy. my daughter has a peanut allergy and chic fi la doesn’t bother her at all
