Chick-fil-A Nuggets

by Rodzilla on May 5, 2011 · 8 comments

My campus Chick-fil-A is truly half-ass, actually they’re worse. I’m going to go as far as quarter-ass.  They’re a little station in one of the main food courts with around a  fourth of the menu of a legitimate CFA outpost. Any time I start to get excited about some new menu item, I’m reminded that my CFA won’t have it. Hell, I can’t even get a milkshake. As much as I hate to support shitty-efforts, they do have one item that keeps me coming back. The best nuggets in the game, yo. 

Nearly all Chick-fil-A’s allow for unlimited sauces, I bet you can guess which outpost is the exception. Luckily, these nuggets need sauce about as badly as Kobe needs Shaq. They’re already superstars, the meat itself comes from an actual chicken breast rather than some mechanically separated soft-serve. Breaded lightly with a good amount of seasoning before being pressure cooked in (non-hydrogenated) peanut oil.

Tender, meaty, crispy, and it get’s better. As far as I know Chick-Fil-A is the only chain offering the new Heinz Dip & Squeeze ketchup. Forget Shaq and Kobe, this is like D Wade and Lebron, Jordan and Pippen, HALL & OATES! Okay, not sure about that one…All I’m saying is that Heinz Ketchup (the only ketchup) will always compliment a fast-food nugget, always.

For the nutrition crew, 8 nuggets provide 270 cals 12g Fat, 11g Carbs, and 28g Protein. Those are some pretty favorable macronutrients when compared to the contenders, and the ingredients are a step above as well.

I paid 3.09 for an 8 count – steep in comparison, but I’m cool with it. Quality always costs money, that goes for basketball contracts, platinum records, and most definitely chicken nuggets.

Grade: B+

Don’t trust me? The fellas at Grub Grade seem to agree.

These look pretty tasty actually, glad to see theyre actually made with proper chicken breast and yes I agree Heinz Ketchup is the only ketchup and always does wonders for a nugget yum!

“All I’m saying is that Heinz Ketchup (the only ketchup) will always compliment a fast-food nugget, always.”

This sentence is so true, haha!

I love those nuggets, but honestly, if I want nuggets, I want MSM because they remind me of my childhood. Also, you cannot beat the Chicken Sandwich at CFA. The Bun and pickles play an essential part, and you just don’t get that with the nuggets.

agreed with adam – the bun, and especially the pickles, play such a big part in the chick-fil-a experience for me that i just can’t do the nuggets.

…but i wholeheartedly disagree with you both on the ketchup point. ketchup+chicken nugget grosses me out. bluh!

Nat – I thought ketchup was somewhat of a rarity in the UK, glad you’re with me.
Adam – I think GG originally turned me on to these, thanks for that.
Matt – who doesn’t?
TBFM – blasphemous! but you should still try them, I will accept Polynesian sauce as a substitute this one time.

These are my favorite fast food nuggets! I, however, require the honey mustard sauce to reach full enjoyment.
