DIY...Chick-fil-a?!?!

Does that count as DIY??

I received in my inbox, from my mother, the gift of all gifts!!!!  A 478 page cookbook with recipes that range from items you would find on the menu out Outback steakhouse to McDonalds.  From how to make your own Vanilla Extract or your own OREO cookies!

I almost fell out of my chair, and I definitely squealed when I saw they had a recipe for Chick-fil-a nuggets. Chick-fil-a is one of those things that I could eat every day and never get tired of!

I had to make these immediately. I was skeptical - but I just had to try

Here they are frying:












Doesn't that sucker look just like a nugget from Chick-Fil-A?

Did it taste like the real thing too?  Well I'm proud to say I have a new recipe for chicken nuggets.  They were juicy, tasty and just overall quite good.  My husband said they tasted like Chick-fil-a.  I guess I'm just a connoisseur because they didn't taste the same to me.  I'm not disappointed though, they were good and I did deviate from the recipe slightly.

Listen to what else is in this cookbook:
  • 3 Muskateers Bar
  • Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream
  • Benihana's famous salad dressing!
  • Boston Market chicken (and sides too)
  • Burger King menu items
  • California Pizza Kitchen menu items
  • Dunkin Donuts
  • Girl Scout Cookies!
  • Krispy Kream donuts
  • Macaroni Grill menu items
  • McDonalds stuff (did you know they use 7up in their pancakes?
  • Olive Garden
  • P.F. Chang's!
  • Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
  • Pop Tarts
  • Red Lobster
  • Ruby Tuesday
  • Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!!!
  • Snickers
  • Starbucks Frappuccino
  • TGI Fridays
  • Taco Bell
  • Tony Roma's
  • and million other condiments, candy's, and fast food to nice restaurant recipes.
Can you believe it?  I will post new recipes as I try them, or leave a comment if there's one you want :-)

  1. Hi! I'm a new follower. I think I might become obsessed, we shall see.

    ;)

    We don't have a Chick-fil-a around these parts (I know right? Lame)but those look DELISH. I'd eat them for breakfast right now. :) Yum.

  2. Hi Stef. I just saw your post on DIY. I'm so glad I found you. I just love your frugal decorating ideas. You're home looks beautiful and I think it's takes so much more imagination and talent to be creative with ideas and money than just to go spend it. You've done a great job and I'm looking forward to getting to know you and visiting you blog often.

    Have a blessed day...Tracy :)

  16. I searched and found a book called "Top Secret Restaurant Recipes" on Amazon with 4.5 star reviews that may be the name of the cookbook?

  19. Yay DIY - make your own and put Chick-fil-A out of business for good!

    Chick-fil-A is serving up far more than just chicken sandwiches. Chick-fil-A has joined with the Pennsylvania Family Institute to sponsor a February event aimed at preserving “biblical” marriage and denouncing marriage equality for same-sex couples.

    It’s time to get Chick-fil-A on record. Are they interested in being a fast-food restaurant that serves everyone, or partnering with and catering to some of the most radical anti-gay groups in the U.S.?

    It’s not the first time that Chick-fil-A has been connected to anti-gay groups. In years past, the business also partnered with Focus on the Family, the Colorado ministry founded by Rev. James Dobson. Focus on the Family labels homosexuality a disorder, supports “conversion therapy” for LGBT people, and once said that same-sex marriage would be a bigger disaster than Pearl Harbor.

    I’m fed up with Chick-fil-A – they can eat their own birds until they learn some basic respect and drop all this demented hate stuff.Chick-fil-A is serving up far more than just chicken sandwiches.
