Have you ever wished you had McDonald’s Chicken Nuggets Recipe? Well now you can have your own homemade chicken McNuggets! Pair it with a frozen homemade Butterbeer and it’s instant happiness.
You KNOW that I am a HUGE, like crazy obsessed, fan of McDonalds right? Like to me McDonald’s Chicken Nuggets and Fries are the ultimate comfort food. I always request the nuggets and fries hot “I’m happy to wait longer if I need to” I say. And on really tough days I’ll add a mocha frappe to my order.
From my first memories of the chain of me eating my happy meal out of styrofoam proportioned containers with that teeny tiny merry-go-round thing in the background, to sneaking away and ordering a 10 piece combo and eating it all alone in my car in the parking lot to save my sanity, McDonald’s has been a staple in my life.
In fact somewhere close to the beginning of this website, I made my baby niece a McDonald’s French fries costume for Halloween. And a few years back my sister gifted me with a piece of jewelry shaped like a chicken nugget.
I’m not kidding guys. I’m a super fan. One of the highlights of my blogging career was being able to tour the inside of a McDonald’s and learn all about the special refrigeration of the soda. This is why McDonald’s Diet Coke always tastes just a little bit better than anywhere else.
But I’ve resisted the drive-thru since all this apocalypse business started. Okay I take it back, on the first day of lockdown I drove to pick up my kid’s school work and then got “one last” McDonald’s meal. I know the number of days I’ve gone without friends. It’s most certainly the longest I’ve endured in my adult memory.
McDonald’s Chicken Nuggets Recipe
So all that is to say that I was giddy with excitement when I stumbled upon a recipe for copycat McDonald’s chicken nuggets. Like I’m sitting here giggling with excitement.
I’m not going to lie this recipe isn’t my go-to easy chicken nuggets recipe. In fact the BBQ sauce portion of the recipe just seems crazy pants. SO.MANY.INGREDIENTS. Thankfully I don’t partake in the dip. But if you do, just know it’s there. I do think the actual nugget part seem more doable though and frankly I cannot wait to give it a try!
I don’t have a meat grinder (I sold mine so I could buy an ice cream maker attachment, no regrets that thing is amazing). So when I try it I’ll just use my trusty mini ninja blender but I’ve love all the KitchenAid attachments I’ve tried so if you think you’d grind your own meat I would think it would be a good investment.
