Homemade Grilled Chick-fil-a Nuggets and Low-Calorie Dipping Sauce

Homemade Grilled Chick-fil-A Nuggets and Low-Calorie Dipping Sauce

May 20, 2022

Make healthy, grilled Chick-fil-A nuggets from home. It’s easy and delicious! Plus, a recipe for a low-calorie Chick-fil-A dipping sauce to go with it!

I think most people under-appreciate how tasty the grilled chicken is at Chick-fil-A. So many of their customers go for the breaded chicken sandwiches, or the breaded chicken nuggets.

Not me! I can’t say I eat at Chick-fil-A very often. Kind of like never, because we actually rarely eat out. BUT, when I have been, I think the grilled chicken nuggets are the best thing on their menu!

I really like the size of these baby nuggets. Portion control is everything for me, so size is very important to keep my portions under control! Besides, if a chicken nugget is too big, you may be double dipping (adding more calories from the dip!)
