Copycat Chick Fil A Chicken Sandwich Recipe

copycat-chick-fil-a-chicken-sandwich recipe

Oh – I love Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, but I never seem to get them. Either I just don’t feel like driving to get them, or I get a craving for them on a Sunday (when they are closed), or I just don’t feel like spending the money that day. When my children were younger, we were at Chick-Fil-A at least once a week for lunch. Their playland is ideal for the younger children and there were ALWAYS a bunch of moms there (so I got some adult contact as well).

Chick-Fil-A sandwiches have a very distinct flavor – unlike that of any other fast food chicken sandwich. This can be credited to two very important things: marinating the chicken in pickle juice and frying the chicken in peanut oil. I know that some people will try to make this and substitute olive or vegetable oil for the peanut oil. Let me say this right now – I guarantee you that it won’t taste the same and won’t be a true copycat Chick Fil A chicken sandwich recipe…it just won’t.

To make it, you will need:

chick-fil-a-ingredients

Ingredients
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 8 oz each – or 4 4 oz chicken breasts)
1/2 cup pickle juice (just use the juice from any pickle jar)
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 cup flour
2 tbsp powdered sugar
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp celery salt
1/2 tsp basil
1 cup peanut oil for frying
4 Hamburger Buns (buttered and toasted)
Pickle Slices

The Bahama Breeze Summer Beach Bash is ON! #SummerBeachBash #ad

This post brought to you by Bahama Breeze. All opinions are 100% mine.

There are few things that can compare to relaxing on a beach, be it the white sands of a Bahamian beach or even just being "down the shore" (as we say around here) in Cape May, NJ.  The warm sand, the cool breezes, the salty air, the cold drinks and dancing…you just don't want it to end!

For those of us who can't spend all of our time at the beach (or just want to extend the feeling of our beach vacation), Bahama Breeze has given us the Bahama Breeze Summer Beach Bash!

With live music, island sounds over the speakers and the new Bahama Breeze Ultimate Pineapple (the must-have drink of the summer), you and your friends can keep the fun going! The Ultimate Pineapple a frozen concoction featuring Bacardi Oakheart, Coco Lopez and Myer's Dark rum and is even SERVED in a pineapple!  Doesn't get more "beachy" than that!

Are you a Mojito fan like I am?  Stop in on Saturdays when they roll out the mojito bar!  Pick your fruit and pick your rum and then sit back and watch your bartender make your custom creation!

Of course, what is a party or a fun night out without selfies?  If you are heading to the Summer Beach Bash, don't forget to take a selfie of the fun and enter the #MyBBSelfie Instagram contest for a chance to win $25 Bahama Breeze gift cards! (make sure to use that hashtag to be entered).

Between the fun drinks, the island music and chance to win gift cards (and oh yeah – the yummy food), Bahama Breeze is the summer destination for good times.  Brad and I have a "date night" coming up and I think we will be heading to Bahama Breeze.  I can't wait to try out the mojito bar!

The Summer Beach Bash won't last forever (it ends August 3rd), so make sure that you head to your local Bahama Breeze and join the party!
