The flavor was a point on. One thing that would have made it better would have been that amazing Polynesian Sauce for me to dip them in, for now, I will just use some honey mustard, still great. But this Chick Fil A Nuggets recipe came out amazing!
These nugget sized chicken pieces were so extremely tender and did I mention the flavor? Once I got full I was kind of upset that I had to stop eating them. Who would have thought that pickle juice would make such a great marinade? I didn’t, but it was amazing, for lack of a more creative word.
Chick Fil A Nugget Recipe
My kids loved my Copycat Air Fryer Chick-fil-A Nuggets too, they actually asked me to make more the same night. I didn’t lol, but next time I will make probably a double batch and then freeze them for the kids to reheat and eat as an after-school snack or on the weekends.

Not sure will ever go buy these in the restaurant again, I am so happy and proud of how well these turned out, that they will go into our regular dinner rotation. I am also thinking about taking this Chick Fil A recipe trying to make their Chick Fil A chicken sandwiches too.
The main complaint I have seen from my readers is that the flour mixture doesn’t brown enough if you have this issue try spritzing with a little more olive oil. This recipe has definitely become a fast favorite fried food, of the foods that are not fried.
