I’m not going to get all political on you here. I’ll just say that I’m glad I perfected this sandwich, since I otherwise wouldn’t be eating it anymore.
Now all I need to do is nail down the waffle fries and I’ll be all set.
Copycat Chick-Fil-A Sandwich
slightly adapted from Hilah Cooking
4 boneless chicken breasts
1 cup pickle juice
2/3 cup milk
1 1/2 cups AP flour
3 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried basil
vegetable oil for frying (peanut oil is supposedly better, but I didn’t have any)
4 buns, buttered and toasted
Pound out chicken to 1/2 inch thickness. Marinate in pickle juice for 1 hour.
Beat egg and milk together in a bowl. Combine flour, sugar and spices in another bowl. Dip chicken on both sides in egg first, then flour mixture.
Heat oil in a deep skillet. Fry each piece for a few minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through. Place on paper towel lined plate and blot top side. Serve on buns with pickles.
