Hello, it’s me, Sarah, from Cooking Frog. Today I’m going to share How to Make Chicken Minis just like Chick-fil-A makes them. Is bigger better? That does not seem to be true anymore. I mean, just look at the hamburger industry. Sliders, popularly referred to as “mini burgers,” have become the hot new item. It is not like there is less food…only smaller sizes and larger portions.

The Chick-fil-A Chick-n-Mini Copycat is really simple to make. They take their bite-sized Chick-fil-A chicken nugget and make it into a tiny chicken yummy sandwich. These small treasures arrive in 3-count or 4-count and may also be arranged in 20 or 40-count platter-sized portions.

If you think that it is odd to have a chicken for breakfast, try these out before you dismiss them. Although I really do prefer Mini’s daily, I will still make an effort to make them at least twice at breakfast time.

They are simple like a great deal of Chick-fil-A menu items is, but they are quality breakfast fast food. These bite-sized beauties are really worth getting up early for.

Now I have decided to make them, and the results were excellent; everyone loved them.

Since I’ve been getting many requests for these chicken minis from Chick Fil A, I’ve also added the recipe for the rolls below. However, the rolls don’t make much difference, except for the honey butter spread; they are pretty standard rolls.
