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
