Home » I’m a Chick-fil-A fan & tried Costco’s chicken nuggets

Of course, one could drive to a nearby Chick-fil-A when they’re craving delicious nuggets but Aly Walansky said there’s another way to indulge in your favorite protein-filled treat.

A Chick-fil-A fan has revealed Costco's nuggets taste almost identical to the fast-food chain's chicken.

Aly, a lifestyle writer for Taste of Home, said she discovered that Just Bare’s lightly breaded chicken breast chunks are the “perfect dupe” of the fast-food chain’s popular nuggets.

“Made with boneless, skinless white meat chicken breasts, they have the flavor and crunch we look for at Chick-fil-A with slightly less breading,” Aly said.

“But most importantly, they don’t require us to get dressed and go to a drive-thru.”

She added: “The Just Bare chicken breast chunks do not disappoint in taste or texture, especially when paired with a copycat Chick-fil-A sauce.”

According to the Chick-fil-A fan, the Costco nuggets can be cooked either in the oven or in an air fryer.

“Just throw them in the air fryer for eight minutes at 350°F or in the oven for around 23 minutes. They’re even microwaveable,” she said, noting the nuggets can also be cooked in the microwave.

And for the best tip of all, a Costco membership is not even needed to purchase the mouth-watering chicken nuggets.

Aly said that Just Bare nuggets are sold at major grocery stores in four-pound bags across the country.

It’s even possible to purchase the Just Bare nuggets on Amazon.


Just Bare also sells spicy chicken fillets, which are ideal for making a mock Chick-fil-A spicy chicken sandwich.

Meanwhile, anyone interested in making a copycat Chick-fil-A sauce at home, which would go perfectly with Just Bare’s nuggets, can create their own with just a handful of ingredients.

Taste of Home’s Lauren Habermehl lists the ingredients for the special sauce as real mayonnaise, good quality Dijon mustard, a Kansas City barbecue or a Memphis-style barbecue sauce, and any type of honey.

According to Habermehl, 1/4 cup Dijon mustard, five tablespoons of mayonnaise, three tablespoons barbecue sauce, and three tablespoons of honey are perfect to make 3/4 cup of sauce.

Eat This! Not That!’s Kiersten Hickman also agrees that the Just Bare Boneless Skinless Lightly Breaded Chicken Breast Chunks are very similar to Chick-fil-A’s nuggets.

She said: “The packaging itself had me impressed—no antibiotics used for the chicken, no added hormones or steroids, and each serving had a whopping 16 grams of protein.

“The result? Surprisingly, they are similar. It’s true—the hype does not lie for this one.

“Just Bare chicken nuggets have a breading that is eerily similar to the types of nuggets you would get at Chick-fil-A, and the meat is as juicy and good as the bag advertises it to be.”

Meanwhile, a professional chef on TikTok has shown how to turn a $10 fast food meal into a three-course dinner.

And a shopping expert shared the tips she has used to cut her grocery bill in half.
