Sheri's notes for this recipe:
My kids LOVE Chick-Fil-A sandwich so I went online to find a recipe that tasted like their sandwich. I have not tried this one yet, but it sounds good!

Personalize This


Pound chicken breasts till they are thin enough for your taste. (I find a lot of breasts are really too thick for a sandwich so I pound out the thick part a little) Cut into chunks if you want nuggets.
Place chicken in plastic bag with pickle juice and marinate for an hour (preferably overnight)
Mix up eggs in separate bowl for the egg wash
Mix flour and remaining spices in another shallow bowl
Remove chicken from the pickle juice maranade and drain well. Dip into the egg wash and then into the flour mixture
Fry the chicken however you prefer here. Chick-Fil-A deep fries theirs in a pressure cooker.

I asked some one a while back about chick-fil-a chicken. Interesting thing, they told me they marinate their breasts in a mixture of dill and ranch dressing before breading, then they pressure cook instead of deep-frying. Either way, complicated little sandwiches!

Definitely complicated, but oh so good! I haven't tried this recipe yet, but intend to soon! Who would have thought pickle juice? :)
