Want me to let you in on a little secret?
Word on the street is that Chick-Fil-A nuggets are injected with pickle juice! I know – crazy, huh?!
I can not confirm nor deny that Chick-Fil-A injects or marinates their nuggets in pickle juice – but I decided to see if it worked!! So I made up my own version of pickle-juice marinated chicken nuggets at home…and of course, they had to be gluten-free and boosted with superfoods too!!
They were a hit! So I thought I would share the recipe…
Chick-Fil-A Style Gluten Free Nuggets
*Avoid using any kind of pickle juice that contains artificial colors – I like Bubbies or other natural brind/fermented pickles. If you don’t have time for this step, you can skip it – just season the chicken or egg wash with a sprinkle of Himalayan salt.
Enjoy with some organic ketchup, BBQ sauce, or this:
Quick n’ Easy Honey Mustard Sauce:
Stir all together, taste & adjust. Serve with chicken nuggets.
