Chick-fil-A Bites : Give it a Try!

Have you ever tried making Chick-fil-A bites at home? It’s worth a try! The secret to this wonderful dinner is letting the chicken soak in a marinade that includes pickle juice.  This is essential because one of the great parts of the Chick-fil-A sandwiches is the taste of pickle.  So each little chicken bite tastes like a sandwich with a pickle!  Brilliant!

Here’s the Recipe, pair it with a side of broccoli and mashed potatoes and you have a great meal for the family! Or you can just make fries and make it fast food at home!

  • 2 large chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces and seasoned with salt & pepper
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup pickle juice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 2 Tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup peanut oil, divided (or canola or vegetable oil)

Instructions:

  1. Whisk together egg, milk and pickle juice, and pour into a large ziplock bag or bowl. Add chicken pieces and marinate in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours.
  2. Combine flour, powdered sugar, salt and pepper in a large ziplock bag. Shake to combine. Remove chicken from the marinade and add into the bag. Shake to coat the chicken completely.
  3. Heat half the oil in a large skillet or dutch oven over medium-high heat (6 or 7 out of 10.) Test the oil by dropping in a bit of the flour mixture. If it sizzles, the oil is ready, if it pops, lower the temperature a bit.
  4. Gently place chicken pieces into the oil with tongs. Do this in 2 batches, as you don’t want to overcrowd the pan. Cook the chicken for 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown on one side. Turn the chicken over and allow to cook for 3-4 more minutes. Remove to a paper-towel lined plate. Heat the remaining oil and continue with the other half of the chicken pieces.
