The St. Augustine Chick-fil-A suggested buffalo and ranch sauces for your nugget salad. As this grew into a TikTok trend, users proposed different sauce options. One TikToker suggested adding Chick-fil-A sauce to the buffalo/ranch mix. Another TikTok user reminds us “the sauces are the most important part of this entire process,” then lists their choices: avocado lime ranch dressing, sweet & spicy sriracha sauce, buffalo and ranch. @Moorethanahousewife went with the basic buffalo plus ranch but suggested cheese and bacon as add-ons. She said she’s heard this nugget salad hack referred to as a “southern mess.”
This same user has another Chick-fil-A hack she posted on TikTok a little earlier: three chicken strips, macaroni and cheese, and buffalo sauce. Rip up the strips to bite-size, and mix. Really, the possibilities are endless if you think about it. Almost 500,000 users liked a post by @yummysadie, who fried up Chick-fil-A nuggets in Polynesian and sriracha sauces and put them over ramen noodles – with a splash of soy sauce added at the end. At this rate, we have no reason to think TikTok’s #chickfilahacks will end anytime soon.
