You no longer need to go to Chick-fil-a because you can make these air fryer Chick-fil-a chicken nuggets at home.


Honestly I haven't ate at Chick-fil-a in years because they cook their chicken in peanut oil and I have a peanut allergy. So it's been on my list to make Chick-fil-a nuggets at home in the air fryer so they're healthier and they did not disappoint. My daughter even told me it was the yummiest dinner.



1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces

1/2 cup dill pickle juice

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

2 eggs

Cooking oil spray


  1. In a bowl, combine the pickle juice and milk. Add the chicken pieces to the bowl, ensuring they are fully submerged in the mixture. Let the chicken marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or up to overnight.

  2. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder. Mix well.

  3. In a bowl beat two eggs together. In another bag add bread crumbs.

  4. Remove the chicken pieces from the marinade, allowing any excess liquid to drip off. Coat each piece of chicken in the flour mixture, ensuring they are well coated.

  5. Next dip the coated chicken in the beaten eggs then transfer to the bag with the breadcrumbs.

  6. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).

  7. Lightly spray the air fryer basket with cooking oil spray. Arrange the coated chicken pieces in a single layer in the basket, making sure they are not overcrowded.

  8. Cook the chicken in the air fryer for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway through the cooking time, until golden brown and crisp. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may have to cook the chicken in batches.

  9. Once cooked, remove the chicken from the air fryer and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
