I keep Chick-fil-A in business

Seriously, I love Chick-fil-A. I eat there more times than I care to admit, and have always wanted to replicate their food. Well, I stumbled across a recipe, and dove in! I couldn't find several of the ingredients, so this is my interpretation.

Chick-fil-A Chicken Nuggets

From: Runs with Spatulas, Originally from Insider's Recipes Master Edition, 2002

2 cups Chicken Breast (boneless, skinless, cubed) *I used 2 breasts
1 cup flour
1 1/2 cups cracker meal *I used Chicken breader
1/4 tso paprika
2 cups water
2 chicken bouillon cubes
2 1/4 tsps McComick Season-all *I used Penzey's seasoned salt

Place cool water in bowl, add 1/4 teaspoon season−all and dissolve bouillon cubes in mixture. Place cubed chicken in water, mix, cover and place in refrigerator for 12 hours or next day. When ready to cook nuggets, mix flour, cracker meal, 2 teaspoons season−all and paprika in bowl. Heat oil for deep frying. Drain chicken. Coat nuggets in flour, cracker mixture and fry until golden. Chicken will be flavorful and juicy.

I let my chicken marinate for about 8-10 hours, and it was perfect. These are AWESOME!!!

Really?! What a great recipe to try out! The other day my husband and I were grocery shopping and he spotted a value pack of breaded chicken nuggets... and was reaching to put it in our cart. However I stopped him and asked him to stop being a 'Nuggnut' (as in MacDonald's new gimmick for their McNuggets - lol). I can't wait to try this out so we can have a Nuggnut night :)

I am so excited that you posted this recipe. I am a Chick-Fil-A freak! My husband even fed me chicken nuggets on a picnic right before he proposed - he knew how to butter me up just right! I can't wait to try this!
