These Grilled Chicken Nuggets taste just like Chick Fil A grilled nuggets! Of course we all love their crispy nuggets, but if you’re looking for a low carb, healthy chicken recipe this one is it!




  1. Cut the chicken into a large dice like a “nugget” size. Place the chicken pieces into a dish or a large resealable bag and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours or up to overnight.
  2. Remove the chicken from the marinade (discarding the marinade) and place on paper towels. Lightly pat the chicken to remove the excess marinade.
  3. Heat the grill to 400 degrees. Grill the chicken nuggets on both sides until the chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear. This should take about 3-4 minutes on each side.
  4. Remove the chicken from the grill and serve with vegetables, salad or oven fries!
