Have you ever wondered why Chik-Fil-A nuggets taste so good AND why they are so unique? I don’t think I have ever been to a Chik-Fil-A when they were not jam packed. Except for that occasional day when I wake up craving their delicious nuggets, get the kids loaded in the car for an exciting outing, and then remember it is Sunday and they are closed. Yep, I’ve done it several times.
Did you find yourself here on a Sunday? Well I have news for you! You’re in luck because I found a delicious recipe to share with you guys. You will never believe the secret ingredient. PICKLE JUICE! What?! So crazy. Unless you are on sodium restrictions, this recipe is for you. I call it “paleo-ish” because I’m pretty sure cave men did not pickle their cucumbers. But hey, it is gluten, soy, and dairy free. I am also sharing our yummy sauce on the side. Enjoy!
40 Aprons Recipe
I followed this recipe from 40 Aprons and it was delicious!
Here are a few things that I used from my pantry.
This is a delicious and super easy sauce that we made from items in our pantry. It went really well with the nuggets with a spicy kick. You can add or subtract the amount of sriracha to achieve a desirable level of spiciness.
The End Result
These nuggets were yummy and hit the spot when looking for a Chic-Fil-A fix. My kids and husband loved them and asked for seconds. I hope you enjoy!
