Copycat Chick-Fil-A Chicken Nugget And Sauce Recipe


Chick-Fil-A makes a great chicken nugget. It’s probably my favorite fast food option when I’m traveling and it’s always the one fast food that I crave when I haven’t had it for a while.

The good news is that Passion For Savings has created a recipe that replicates those tasty nuggets so you can make them at home and save a little money.

This would be perfect for Super Bowl parties, kid’s lunches, or a fun appetizer.



  • 1/2 cup Ken’s Steakhouse Honey Mustard Dressing (or another honey mustard dressing)
  • 1 tsp Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar


  • 1 cup Dill Pickle Juice
  • 1 lb Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 1 Egg

  • 1 1/2 cup Flour
  • 3 tbsp Powdered Sugar

  • Peanut Oil


  1. To make the sauce, combine the honey mustard dressing, BBQ sauce, vinegar and set aside.

  3. Combine egg and milk into a large bowl.
  4. Drain the pickle juice from the chicken and add to the chicken to the egg/milk mixture in the bowl.  Toss to ensure all the pieces are coated.

  6. Add chicken to the bag and shake to get the chicken coated.
  7. Heat oil on medium heat (to about 375)
  8. Cook the chicken in oil until there is a golden crispy crust (around 3-4 minutes)
  9. Remove chicken and drain the excess grease on paper towels.
