Homemade Chick-fil-A Nuggets

Homemade Chick-Fil-A Nuggets and Waffle Fries
Recipe adapted from: Tamar McGill

We love Chick-Fil-A it's one of our favorite restaurants to grab lunch at. I saw this recipe pop up on Facebook and I knew I had to try it. 
These are so good! Very easy to make and  the kids gobble them up every time I make them! I thought I would share the recipe that I have been using. 
I buy frozen waffle fries at Kroger.(Usually the plain, but I grabbed the seasoned bag this time)
  • 1 pound chicken breast or tenders, cut into large chunks
  • ⅓ cup dill pickle juice
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tbsp almond milk
  • 1 tbsp almond flour
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • coconut oil for frying
  • Marinate the chicken in the pickle juice in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  • Mix the beaten egg and almond milk.
  • Pour out pickle juice then add the egg/almond milk mixture. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  • Mix the dry ingredients.
  • Drain the egg/almond mixture and add the spice mixture. Mix until the chicken is evenly coated.
  • Add a couple of tablespoons of coconut oil to a large frying pan. Add a single layer of chicken when the oil is hot enough.
  • Fry about 3 minutes on each side or until it's thoroughly cooked.
  • It may take 2-3 batches to cook one pound of chicken.
(can use coconut milk, coconut flour, and arrowroot flour if you prefer) 

Y'all give these a try they are so Yummy!
