Copycat Chick-fil-A Chicken Nuggets

There really isn’t anything quite like the tender, seasoned chicken nuggets from Chick-fil-A. I’m pretty sure my family has contributed to the Chicken-fil-A craze along with the rest of the country. Not only do I love the business philosophy of the owners of Chick-fil-A, but the quality of their food is outstanding. I can take or leave pretty much every other fast food joint, but if I can go to Chick-fil-A, I easily persuaded to stop in. My kids know I’m a sucker for a quick batch of these chicken nuggets and I’m SO excited to share our recipe so you can have these same delicious flavors in your own kitchen.

If you have chicken or chicken tenders thawed in your fridge, this recipe comes together pretty quickly. I love to make up several pounds of these and keep in my fridge for other recipes later in the week. One of our favorite’s is this Winger’s Salad recipe we can’t get enough of!

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbs. Montreal Steak Seasoning
  • 2 lbs. boneless chicken tenders
  • 1 ¼ cup flour
  • 2 Tbs. powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp. Salt
  • 1 tsp. Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. Black pepper
  • ½ tsp. Chili powder
  • ½ tsp. Paprika
  • Oil for frying


  • In a large bowl whisk milk, Montreal Steak Seasoning. Put the chicken in the milk mixture and mix so that all is coated and place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes
  • In another large bowl combine the flour, powdered sugar, salt, pepper, and chili powder and stir together.
  • In cast iron pot or sauce pan pour in oil so that its at least an inch deep on med/high heat. You can also use a deep fryer if you would like to fry the entire chicken piece. Baking can also be done but it won’t be as crispy.
  • Remove the chicken from refrigerator and place about 8 pieces at a time into the flour mixture making sure all the chicken is coated with the flour and then place into the hot oil. Shake off a little of the flour mixture so it’s not super clumpy and thick.
  • Cook each side for about 2-3 minutes or until golden brown (You want to make sure that chicken is no longer pink so you can cut one piece to test it out).
  • Place the cooked chicken on paper towels to soak up any extra oil. Repeat the same steps with the rest of the chicken.
