Eat Mor Chikin!

Chick-fil-A is known for some great chicken filled meals that give those cows a break. Have you ever seen one of their great billboards on the free ways? The cows are always misspelling and making mischief of one sort or another to encourage us to “eat mor chikin". I had heard about this restaurant from many a folk and from the gossip round the street it sounded like a goldmine meeting your mouth. Growing up in WA we had never had the chance to munch on Chick-fil-A. However, moving to ID when first married my husband quickly introduced me to this great little spot. I have to admit I fell in love to. They just have some quality yummy food, and man those waffle fries are so good. Not only do they have some grade A chicken for fast food but their magical special sauce is a must on anything you get. It is so good. We always tried to go when they had their dress like a cow and eat free! It was fun to see other families their dressed up and always a hoot trying to figure out a costume. Anything for a yummy free meal right. Cause lets be honest eating out isn’t so good for the pocket book.

We have found in our home that we go and eat out the most when we are to busy, already out and are just tired and lazy. In Idaho Falls we were seconds it seemed like from any, I mean any, type of fast food or restaurant you could think of. We tried to be really disciplined but got trapped for sure sometimes. Now that we live in a town farther away from the city and quite a bit from big restaurants we eat out way less. But sometimes you are just craving or really want those fries or sauce you love. So it is quite awesome when you learn how to copycat those yummy but quite expensive meals you love when you eat out to eat right in your kitchen! Here I have the cream of the crop of copy cats for you. All over Pinterest moms have been saying Hallelujah to this recipe because their children love it and their husbands do to. Chicken nuggets seem to be a safe food for kids to enjoy and daddy love not spending the paycheck on one meal for their family out.

So here you have it the recipe you may have been waiting for to save your family meal budget or help your Chick-fil-A cravings: the Chick-fil-A Nuggets and Sauce. As fall approaches and kids are back in school and you all just want comfort food it doesn't get much better then this! What are some of your favorite places to eat out? Have you found it easy to copy cat some of those special foods you love? I’d love to hear!
