Just in case you missed the news last August, Sam’s Club now sells southern-style chicken bites that some fans say taste like just like Chick-Fil-A’s famous chicken nuggets.
If you don’t have a Chick-Fil-A branch near you, crave them on a Sunday when the retail warehouse chain is not open or simply want to have them in your freezer at all times, the nuggets (pictured below) appear to be a decent rival to the real thing.
They’ve gotten rave reviews from customers, as seen in this Facebook post from Courtney Cook below:
“They are legit and taste exactly like chick fil a and I’m happy with the result,” Cook wrote alongside several images of the delicious chicken nuggets.
Plus, at only $9.98 for a three-pound bag, it’s also a pretty good deal!
And now there’s even more good news for anyone who has grown to love these popular chicken nuggets: Sam’s Club is now serving them in their cafe.
You don’t even have to be a Sam’s Club member to run into the store and buy them.
Anyone can purchase almost half a pound of nuggets (that’s 12 to 14 of them!) for just $2.50 in every Sam’s Club cafe.
Made with 100% solid white meat chicken, the nuggets are covered with a light, crispy breading that has a hint of dill for a touch of pickle flavor. Yum!
The recipe comes from Passion for Savings and even includes a second recipe for their famous dipping sauce.
Aside from chicken and other obvious ingredients like an egg, milk and flour, you’ll also need dill pickle juice, powdered sugar and peanut oil.
Cut the chicken breasts into small bite size nugget, and place them in a zip-lock bag with the pickle juice. After allowing them to marinate in the fridge for at least 4 hours, drain the pickle juice, and toss the chicken with the egg/milk mixture. Also mix with flour, powdered sugar, paprika, salt and pepper.
For the sauce, all you’ll need is Ken’s Steakhouse Honey Mustard Dressing (or another honey mustard dressing), Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce and some apple cider vinegar.
Simply mix half a cup of the honey mustard dressing with one teaspoon of the BBQ sauce and half a teaspoon of the apple cider.
Set aside the dressing until you’re ready to use. You’ll end up with a close dupe for that beloved Chick-Fil-A sauce:
Will you be heading to your local Sam’s Club cafe to try their southern-style chicken bites?
