Copycat Chick-fil-A Chicken Nuggets

This copycat Chick-fil-A Chicken Nuggets recipe tastes just like the real thing. I am in love with this easy recipe for dinner!  We love to eat at Chick-fil-A but now we won’t have to spend as much money because now we can just eat at home instead.

Chick-fil-A uses Peanut Oil to fry their nuggets.  It is worth the investment if you want them to taste just like the real thing or you can use another oil of choice.

We love to make these up in bulk and enjoy them for dinner but if you have any leftover they are great reheated too. I like to enjoy them on a salad too.
