  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/3 cup dill pickle juice (adjust to taste)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (or garlic salt)
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • Drizzle of olive oil or sunflower oil


  1. Prepare the Chicken:
    • Cut the boneless, skinless chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces. Remove any excess fat.
  2. Marinate the Chicken:
    • Place the chicken pieces in a large resealable bag or bowl. Add the dill pickle juice and milk. Marinate for at least 30 minutes, or ideally overnight in the refrigerator.
  3. Prep and Dry:
    • Remove the chicken from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Discard the excess marinade.
  4. Season the Chicken:
    • In a bowl, combine the powdered sugar, salt, black pepper, garlic powder (or garlic salt), paprika, and seasoned salt. Toss the chicken pieces in this seasoning mixture until evenly coated.
  5. Cook the Chicken:
    • Heat a saucepan over medium-high heat and drizzle with olive oil or sunflower oil.
    • Add the seasoned chicken pieces to the hot pan. Cook for 8-10 minutes, tossing frequently to ensure even cooking. Adjust cooking time as needed to ensure the chicken is thoroughly cooked.
  6. Serve:
    • Once cooked through, remove the chicken from the heat.
    • Serve the homemade Chick-fil-A grilled nuggets with your favorite dipping sauce, such as homemade honey mustard or any extra sauce packets you have on hand.
