Whether you’re protesting, on a budget, have a Sunday afternoon craving, or simply can’t get enough of Chick-fil-A‘s menu, there’s a reason why you may want to replicate the Southern-based chain’s famous chicken, fries, and beverages from the comfort of your own kitchen. Lucky for you, the internet is chock full of copycat recipes that make at-home prepping, cooking, and frying a breeze. Scroll down to check out some of our favorites. At the very least, they will save you a trip to the drive-through.
Chik-fil-A Frosted Lemonade
If there’s one thing we crave most on an outrageously hot summer day, it’s lemonade. Throw some ice cream and lemon zest in it and you’ve got yourself a frosted version that rivals Chick-fil-A’s. We’re also sure this tastes good with booze, but you didn’t hear that from us. Get the recipe.
Chik-fil-A Spicy Sandwich
“Hold the pickle, hold the lettuce” is pretty much the opposite of Chick-fil-A’s life philosophy. Or at least when it comes to their famous spicy chicken sandwich. Bring on the pickles, their brine, and everything that makes this dish so special. Get the recipe.
It’s all about the cake-like breading with these addictive, bite-sized pieces. You should probably buy at least two pounds of chicken (instead of two breasts), because you’re going to devour all of these in one sitting. Guaranteed. Get the recipe.
Grilled Chik-fil-A Nuggets
Those looking for a healthier option (why?) can celebrate with an imitation recipe of the chain’s grilled alternative. Dipping these in ranch may defeat the purpose of cutting calories, but life is all about balance, right? Get the recipe.
Chik-fil-A Waffle Fries
When it comes to fries, waffle (next to curly, of course) reigns supreme. There’s just something about its size, texture, and ability to hold salt that makes it the perfect dipping vessel. You’ll never look at a crinkle cut the same way again. Get the recipe.
Nuggets and fries are worthless without sauce and Chick-fil-A’s honey mustard and BBQ duo is one of the best. Who knew that it’d be so easy to replicate? Well, the restaurant probably did. They’d just rather not tell you. #chaching. Get the recipe.
