Chick-fil-A Chick-n-Minis

Have you ever met someone who doesn't like Chick-fil-A?



I'm sure you haven't, because it's not even possible to dislike Chick-fil-A.



Austin and I love Chick-fil-A. One of our favorite things there is the Chick-n-Minis. They're soft honey butter rolls . . .


. . . with Chick-fil-A nuggets inside. 


We've been making Chick-fil-A nuggets at home for some time now, but we've only just recently discovered that you can make Chick-n-Minis at home. Best way to start off 2016, if you ask me! 


These seriously taste exactly like the Chick-n-Minis at Chick-fil-A. 


Chick-fil-A Chick-n Minis Copycat

Yields: 24 chicken minis (6-8 servings)

Rolls
1 tbsp (1 packet) yeast
1 cup warm water
3-4 cups flour
1 egg
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup veggie or canola oil
2 tbsp butter, melted

1. In a medium bowl, combine warm water, 1 tbsp of the sugar, and the yeast. Let it bloom for 5-10 minutes. 

2. To the yeast mixture, add the egg, salt, remaining sugar, and oil. Stir with a spoon to mix, 20 seconds or so. Put flour into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook. Add the yeast mixture to the flour and mix/knead until all the flour is incorporated. 

3. Let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour. Roll out to 1/2" on a lightly floured surface. Butter a 9x13 pan and spread the remaining butter on the dough. Cut into 24 squares using a pizza cutter. Let rise, covered, until doubled in size. 

4. Bake at 350 degrees fahrenheit for 20 minutes, or until the tops are golden. Brush with honey, if desired. 

Chick-fil-A Nuggets

1 egg
1 cup milk
1 lb chicken breasts or tenders, cut into 1" pieces

1 1/4 cup flour
2 tbsp powdered sugar
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/4 tsp paprika

Oil for frying

1. Combine egg and milk. Add chicken and soak in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, up to overnight. 

2. Combine the dry ingredients in a bag. Heat up oil to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Add a couple of pieces of chicken to the dry ingredients and shake. Add them to the hot oil and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until golden brown. 

3. Remove onto a paper towel and put inside honey-butter rolls. Enjoy while they're hot!

  2. Is it common to have to add more than 4 cups flour? I ended up having to add about 5 cups because the dough was so sticky and pasty, and not like "dough" until I added the extra flour. Or, are there any tips to avoid the sticky and pasty consistency? I followed the recipe and instructions exactly, except for the added flour before letting the dough rise.

  8. I made the biscuits this morning and my son said they taste just like Chick-fil-a minis. I already had some nuggets made from another copycat website (I made a whole freezer bag full), so I used those. My only issue was my biscuits were way larger than yours, I'm thinking it makes more than what 9x13 pan holds or use less than 2 Tbsp yeast (a packet is 2 1/4 tsp). Next time I'll use a larger pan to cook them in. Thanks again for the great recipe. Now I only need a copycat recipe of their BBQ sauce....

  9. If you put a little butter on your hands and then knead the dough with your hands. The butter keeps it from sticking. I like to use butter rather than oil on my hands because it doesn’t change the flavor or texture. It will start to shape up without having to add the extra flour.

  10. I'm sure these are delicious but you can't claim them to be a CFA mini copycat if you don't make the chicken right. Everyone knows that CFA chicken is brined in a pickle juice mix before frying. What you have here is just fried chicken nuggets in yeast roll.

  11. I worked at chickfila for years and that is absolutely false. No pickle juice is used to prepare or cook the chicken

  12. In Maryland and Rhode Island, surrogacy among freezing eggs south africa couples has not been addressed by courts so it's difficult to work out the validity of such contracts in these states. In states where the laws are unclear.

If you speak too fast, in a deep accent or mumble your words, she won’t be able to understand you, and you’ll end up being frustrated.
