Grilled Chick-Fil-A Nuggets on ceramic plate

Grilled Chick-Fil-A Nuggets

I am addicted to Chick-Fil-A nuggets, but I love to grill, so I’ve made a copycat version of grilled Chick-Fil-A nuggets using two (no longer) secret ingredients to make them extra juicy and well seasoned.

Notes

This recipe has been updated. Now it calls for two teaspoons of my Chicken Rub combined with the powdered sugar. It reduces the sodium level significantly.
If you loved the old rub recipe, here you go:
  • 2 tsps powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp celery salt
