Chick-Fil-A Knockoff Lunch

Do you ever get cravings so bad you can taste them? I do. And recently it has been Chick-fil-A. I like the chicken biscuit slathered in honey for breakfast. For lunch I love the nuggets!! With Chick-fil-a sauce, and an Arnold Palmer with half diet lemonade and half sweet tea. Well, I was craving it too much for my own budget, so I decided to make it myself!

The Chick-Fil-A knock off meal consists of: Sweet tea with Lipton tea bags, and the little trick my friend Jessica shared- baking soda!! It cuts down on the bitterness. Homemade lemonade with the juice I squeezed and froze from the lemons my parents gave me. Biscuits from this recipe- a great trick from Jessica again, is to freeze the butter, then grate it into the dry ingredients. The tiny little shreds are what makes the air pockets when they bake, making them light and flaky. Fried chicken nuggets, a simple and fast recipe that I want to work on, I'm hoping to try marinating the chicken in buttermilk for a few hours, heard it helps. I suppose I should add some green veggies as a recommendation to balance out the not-so-healthy goodies!
