Chik-Fil-A Chicken Sandwich

Whenever we can, my husband, son and I (and I'm pretty sure Gillian will too when she gets teeth) love to stop by to get a chicken sandwich at Chik-Fil-A. It was my favorite when I was pregnant with Gillian...I wanted one so often that I decided to do a little research and I found this recipe that is really yummy, taste just like C-F-A and the best part is, it's made at home with lots of mommy love.

I was able to make this sandwich before meeting on Sunday, from start to finish it was a simple 20 minutes and it was a great, home cooked meal for my boys and I.

Try it at least once, it's great!

  • 2 chicken breasts halves
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar (trust me, it makes a difference)
  • hamburger buns
  • pickle slices
  • cooking oil

Combine the milk and egg in a bowl and whisk until mixed well. Take flour and powdered sugar and mix in another bowl.
I take half of a chicken breast and cut it in half to make these sandwiches. Take a peice of chicken and dip it into the milk and egg mix. Then place the dipped chicken into the flour and sugar mix. Repeat the steps for an extra crispy chicken filet.

Above is a chicken filet that has been double dipped for an extra crispy texture. Once coated well, place into a hot fryer or pan filled with hot oil. Oil should be hot and bubble as soon as you put chicken into it. Cook until brown and crispy and there is no pink in the center.

Add pickle slices on top of the chicken and use good hamburger buns, it does make a difference.

LOL on Scott and his "healthy" comment. It's not healthy but it is FO SHO GOOD!

It's a great treat for the family every so often. It really is good and that powdered sugar really make the difference.

Sorry, tried it and this doesn't have the spices flavor. Alone it didn't take like chik-fil-a, but w/ mayonaise and pickles it was close because the chicken def has the same juiciness and the coating the same crispiness. I'm goint to try freidas (previous commment).
