How To Make A Chick-Fil-A Mini
In a large bowl, combine the Flour and Powdered Sugar, and stir until well blended. Set aside.
Place the Milk and Pickle Juice in a bowl, stir, and set aside with the Flour mixture.
On a cutting Mat, place the Chicken Breasts, and sprinkle them with Salt and Pepper.
Cut into Nugget sized pieces.
Place the Oil in your Deep Fryer or a deep heavy bottomed Skillet, and heat on Medium High until hot.
Place the Chicken on the Mat, the bowl of the Milk mixture, and the Flour mixture close to the Deep Fryer or Skillet.
Dip the Chicken Nuggets in the Milk Mixture and then in the Flour.
Place a few Dipped pieces on a large slotted Spoon or Fryer spatula, and lower them into the hot Oil.
Fry for about 8 – 10 minutes or until the pieces are golden brown.
Drain on paper towels. Continue until all the Chicken Nuggets have been cooked.
While you're frying the Chicken Nuggets, heat the Dinner Rolls.
Follow package directions. When Rolls are heated, remove them from the oven, and place them on a heat-proof surface.
Place the Butter and Honey in a small dish and heat in the microwave until the Butter is melted. (About 30 seconds)
Stir to combine, and brush the Honey-butter on the tops of the Rolls.
When all the Nuggets are cooked, cut the Rolls in half, and place a Nugget on each half of the Rolls. Serve with BBQ Sauce, Honey, or other favorite Dipping Sauces, and your favorite sides.

How To Reheat & Store
Best Way To Store
Use A Large Container Or Baggie
If you don't have an ice tray or don't want to use one because it takes up too much room in your freezer, use a large container or baggie instead.
This is a great way to store things like your sandwich, chips, and drink because it keeps them separate from each other, so they don't get mixed up while you eat them later on.
How Long Will Chick-Fil-A Mini's Last In the Fridge?
Chick-fil-A Mini's will last in the refrigerator for up to four days after they are opened.
However, if they have been left out at room temperature too long, they may not be as good after this period because they contain mayonnaise and other ingredients that can spoil easily if left out for too long.
If you find yourself with extra Chick-fil-A Mini's sitting in your refrigerator, it is best to eat them within two days, so you don't end up with spoiled food.
This is especially important if you have small children who might accidentally leave food out all day before eating it later in the evening or at night.
Can I Freeze Chick-Fil-A Mini's?
Yes, you can freeze Chick-fil-A Mini's! You may not have thought about it before, but freezing them doesn't affect their taste.
They will still taste great when defrosted and heated in the microwave.
How To Reheat Chick-Fil-A Mini's?
The best way to reheat Chick-fil-A minis is in the microwave.
You can also reheat them in the oven or stovetop, but these methods may result in a soggy or dry product.
Is there anything I should know before I make it?
Chick-fil-A Mini's are made with 100 percent white breast meat chicken.
If you want to make chicken nuggets at home using dark meat, check the ingredients label on your favorite brand.
Can I make these ahead of time?
Yes, you can make Chick-fil-A Mini ahead of time! They’re great for parties, tailgating, and more.
We recommend making them right before serving.
If you want to make them beforehand, prepare the batter and pre-bake them before serving.
Then add the cheese and toppings right before serving.
You can also freeze the unbaked minis after they're cooked to reheat later.
Just be sure to let them thaw completely before baking again!
Making your own version of Chick-fil-A's Chicken Mini's at home is surprisingly easy and delicious.
With just a few ingredients and some basic kitchen equipment, you can enjoy these tasty breakfast sandwiches anytime you want.
