Copycat Chick-Fil-A Nuggets

Copycat Chick Fil-A Nuggets


This week is our first Football Saturday of the season!  And you know what that means!  It’s time for me to decide what sort of foods we’ll be indulging in as we watch the games!  A while back, I FINALLY got around to trying this recipe for Copy Cat Chick-Fil-A Nuggets!  These things are amazingly good, and are definitely a great choice for your football party menu, whether it’s just you & your family or a whole army of football junkies!

Copycat Chick Fil-A Nuggets

I have to tell you, when I first told my husband I was making this recipe, he swore there was no way they would taste like Chick-Fil-A.  (He can be quite the skeptic at times!)  But when I made them, he and Noah both completely approved! (Yes! Victory!)

Gary was very impressed with the taste, and very surprised by how much they tasted like Chick-Fil-A.  I think the secret is the powdered sugar inside.  And then the second secret is the use of peanut oil for cooking.  Before this I’d never cooked with it, but it definitely turned out great for this.  The second time I made them, however, I bought canola oil instead, because it is WAY cheaper (like $3 vs $10).

I would say that the peanut oil definitely gives the nuggets a more authentic Chick-Fil-A appeal, but the nuggets were just as delicious with the canola oil.  My husband basically said he couldn’t really tell the difference at all, and he’d rather just have the more budget friendly oil.  To quote him, “It if doesn’t save us money, I’d rather just go to Chick-Fil-A, and then we don’t have to cook!”  (Good point!)

Anyway…I recommend trying the peanut oil at least once, and then you can make up your mind!
