Copycat Chick-Fil-A Nuggets & Sauce

Look at me! I’m posting again! I told you I was back! I have a whole slew of things to show you around the new house {how would you like a little virtual tour??} but for now I thought I would get back to normal and start off with my Friday recipes! On the docket today  Copycat Chick-Fil-A Nuggets & Sauce.

Copycat Chick-Fil-A Nuggets & Sauce

I never really got the whole CFA craze until we moved out to Colorado 1.5 years ago. Don’t start throwing stones at me or anything. There were no CFAs in my hometown until last year. And my only other experience with CFA before then was a bad one. It had me soured on them. See, when I was in college I decided to check out what all the hub-bub was about and I ordered a chicken sandwich from a CFA. I asked for no pickles on it because I hate… no… I loathe pickles. Who knows why. I just don’t like them one bit. I got my sandwich and bit into it, hoping to experience all of the wonderful things I had heard about CFA only to discover my sandwich dripping in pickle juice. Sure, there were no pickles but only because some punk had pulled them off my already soaked bun! Gross. Double ick.

Fast foward to 1.5 years ago and I decided to give them another try at the request of the hubby. This time I played it safe and ordered the nuggets. There better not be pickle juice on my nuggets. MAN were they good! No more processed meat mush! Real chicken bites! I was hooked. I will now say that I love CFA. In fact, I went there just this week for some nuggets. So good. So when I found this recipe for copycat Chick-Fil-A nuggets, I had to give them a try!

How-to Clean Your Drip Pans

Hey all! I’ve been packing things up and cleaning like a madwoman the past few weeks in preparation for our big move next week. I decided to take a break from all the craziness to share a great tip.

How-to Clean Your Drip Pans

I hate the idea of leaving our little apartment a mess for the future tenant so I’ve been doing some serious deep cleaning. One of the first areas I hit up was the kitchen. I am always amazed and incredibly disgusted at how greasy and dirty things get! I have been fighting to get the drip pans clean on our old electric stove ever since we moved in. They have never been clean to my standards but no matter how much scrubbing and soaking I did, I couldn’t get them clean! Arg! It drove me mad! And then my mom told me the key to no-scrub, clean drip pans!
