baked chick-fil-a nuggets

These chicken nuggets looked so good on that I had to try them for myself.  I modified the recipe slightly to make it a bit healthier.

VERDICT: deliciously incredible and your friends and fam will LOVE them.


  • 4 chicken breasts, sliced bite size
  • 1 cup dill pickle juice (from jar)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup oat flour*
  • 1/2 cup bread crumb
  • 2 tbs powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • cooking spray


In a large sealable tupper, combine the chicken pieces, pickle juice and milk.  Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray it lightly with the cooking spray.

In a flat shallow tupper, mix the flour, bread crumbs, sugar, salt, paprika and onion powder.  Using tongs, dredge the chicken pieces in the bread crumb mixture, one at a time.  Place on baking sheet.  Once done, spray all chicken pieces GENEROUSLY, with the cooking spray, making sure to cover all dry spots.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping mid way through.

To make the dipping sauce:

  • 2 tbs mustard
  • 2 tbs mayo
  • 1 tbs honey

Yields 4 servings.


*If you don’t have oat flour, you can make your own by grinding up oats in the food processor.  OR just use regular all purpose flour.

…delicious happens
