Chick- fil- A Nuggets and Special Sauce

I am always looking for a better way to make take out food at home for the boys. Eating out isn’t healthy and I don’t always want them eating take out all the time. So it’s better if I make it for them at home, isn’t it? The recipe is so simple and all you need is a handful of ingredients and some brining time! No excuses not to try this recipe at home. Oh and by the way, I have also included the recipe for Chick- fil- A’s famous sauce, and it’s so easy to make!
