Yesterday was Sunday. The day dedicated to rest, the holy day, and the day Kevin and I crave something that’s not open. That’s right, you guessed it, Chick-fil-A! Kevin swears he could eat there seven days a week and he’s not the only one. People always raved over their chicken. They used to ask for the secret recipe that kept them coming back and craving more. I guess I should tell you how I know that. I used to work for the “chicken coop” (that’s what my fellow employees and I used to call Chick-fil-A) for almost four years. I worked my way up from a regular employee to an assistant director. I could go on and on about how great of a company it is to work for, but you didn’t click on my post to hear about that!
I figured since Kevin and I can’t get our Chick-fil-A fill on a Sunday, I thought, why can’t we just make it at home? Of course it won’t taste exactly the same but if it’s somewhat similar, then why not? As long as it could hold hubby over until Monday, it sounded like a good plan to me. Apparently I wasn’t the first one to have that idea. There’s tons of Chick-fil-A copycat recipes out there. Who knew people could be so creative!
Due to the breading and the milk wash the chicken get’s soaked in, I can’t have Chick-fil-A’s chicken. Therefore, I’m not sure how the recipe’s taste…I know, sad face. BUT, I know friends and family that have tried the recipes I’m going to mention, and they claim it’s as close as it’s going to get.
Chick-fil-A Copycat Chicken Sandwich
- In our opinion Moms Need to Know – “Simple Solutions For Busy Moms” has the best copycat Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich recipe. It even looks pretty similar to the real CFA (Chick-fil-A) sandwich!
Chick-fil-A Copycat Chicken Nuggets
- Jen, who is the owner of Cincy Shopper has a copycat chicken nugget recipe that I’ve heard tastes delicious! (I have not heard reviews of the sauce but I’m sure it’s tasty.)
Chick-fil-A Copycat Waffle Fries
- Making Chick-fil-A’s signature waffle fries is a lot harder than it looks. I tried to do it on one potato and I gave up real fast. I decided to buy frozen waffle fries and create my own seasoning (salt, pepper, and Adobo) But if you’re interested, The Daily Meal – “All Things Food And Drink” has a copycat recipe! (Note: I’ve tried copycat waffle fries but nothing tastes nearly as good as Chick-fil-A’s original fries.) I think it’s their fryer that makes the waffle fries irresistible. (Their waffle fries are gluten free by the way!)
If you’re looking for something special to copycat like their coleslaw or a certain favorite sauce, I have found the best way to find the recipes is through Pinterest.
“GIRLS can GRILL” is the first website/blog I found that has Chick-fil-A’s grilled nuggets copycat recipe. These are definitely going on this week’s meal plan!
Have you tried a Chick-fil-A copycat recipe that’s irresistible? As always, let me know down below! 🙂
