Cut your boneless, skinless chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces. Also, now is a good time to remove any excess fat from the chicken and discard it.

For best results, allow the chicken to marinate for at least 30 minutes, or even overnight if possible.

Afterward, take your chicken out of the mixture and put it on paper towels. Dab it until dry then get rid of the additional milk and pickle juice.

Next, set your stove to medium-high and drizzle in some olive oil or sunflower oil.

In a bowl, mix your chicken with the powdered sugar, salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika and seasoned salt.

Cook your chicken in the heated pan for 8-10 minutes, making sure to toss it regularly so that it cooks evenly. Depending on how powerful your stove is, you may need additional time to cook throughly.

After the food is cooked, take it off the heat and add some delicious honey mustard sauce. You can use those extra packets of sauce you never knew what to do with!

Instructions

The first secret ingredient in grilled nuggets Chick Fil A is pickle juice

The first secret ingredient in grilled nuggets Chick Fil A is pickle juice

If you want to use pickle juice, simply get it straight from the jar of your favorite type of pickles. I recommend dill pickle juice, but if you prefer sweet or bread and butter pickles, go for it.

Be aware that not all types of pickles (and hence their juices) are equal. Some have much more sodium than others. To avoid picking one that’s too salty, check the label on the jar before buying it..

The second secret ingredient is powdered sugar

submerged in pickle juice and milk for 30 minutes, youā€™ll then coat it with a mixture of powdered sugar and other seasonings.Adding the sugar to the dry rub not only aids in creating a crisp outer layer but also helps balances out the overall flavor profile of your nuggets.You might be wondering why we use powdered sugar instead of granulated or brown sugar- trust us, it makes all the difference!Powdered sugar is usually combined with corn starch which gives these bad boys their desired texture.

Notes

You can also cook this recipe on the grill! We’ve made this serving size for 6 people, each eating approximately 24 nuggets. But depending on how large you cut them, the final count may vary.

Tips

-If you want to avoid using paper towels, you can put the chicken onto a cooling rack that is placed on top of a baking sheet. The chicken will dry out this way as well.

-To keep your chicken warm after cooking, preheat your oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit and place the cooked chicken onto a baking sheet. Put it into the oven until you are ready to serve.

-If you don’t have access to dill pickle juice, you can use 1/4 cup of white vinegar mixed with 1/4 cup of water instead.

-You can also use this recipe to make chicken strips! Just cut your chicken into strips instead of bite-sized pieces.

-If you want a little bit more of a crunch in your nuggets, you can add 1/4 cup of bread crumbs to the mixture before cooking.

-For a healthier option, you can use skim milk instead of whole milk.
