You are I your friends house with all your friends, hanging out. One of your friends gets hungry and takes it out his lunch: a piece of cold, dry chicken smashed between two soggy pieces of bread. He looks disgusted as if to say " you don't really expect me to eat this". You tell him not to worry and disappear out the front door and into your car. A few minutes, you emerge with a plate full of glorious, juicy Chick-fil-a® sandwiches. Your friend points something out as you walk to the table: it's Sunday. You explain that the sandwiches were homemade. Amazed, all of your friends ask for recipe. "$10.00 per copy," you announce. You go home rich.

Step 1: Ingredients

3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup bread crumbs

1 tablespoon powdered sugar

Ground black pepper to taste

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon paprika

4 egg yolks

1 cup milk

3 Mediterranean blend oil

Chicken breasts

White burger buns

Pickle slices

Tomato slices


Slices of cheese (preferably cheddar, Colby jack, or American).

Step 2: Mix the Ingredients

Mix the flour, bread crumbs, powdered sugar, ground black pepper, salt, and paprika into a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the egg yolks and the milk.

Step 3: Bread the Chicken

Cover the chicken in the egg and milk. Once it is completely covered, cover it in the flour. Make sure that the entire chicken piece is covered, then put it on the skillet with the oil and fry it until the chicken turns a brownish orange color. Be careful not to over or under cook it. When a piece of chicken finishes, place a piece of cheese on it to melt.

Step 4: Cut the Vegetables

While the chicken is cooking (make sure that you check on the chicken every once in a while), cut the tomatoes and pickles. You will also need to leaf the lettuce.

Step 5: Assemble the Sandwich

Take the burger buns and separate them. If you want, you can toast the buns or apply butter. Place the pickles, lettuce, and tomatoes on the bottom bun. Next, place the chicken and cheese on. Then, place the top bun on, and you've got a glorious, juicy Chick-fil-a® sandwich.

Chick-Fil-A is not only great food, service, and atmosphere, but also a Christian-run organization. That's what's really important. Trying to spread the good news. It's also why they don't open on Sunday. Kinda obvious.

Thanks. Now I can enjoy a homemade chick-fil-a on Sunday.

Chick-Fil-A has got to be the best fast food place in the world. Always happy great service people there. Never the typical chip-on-the-should hired hands, like so many other places. And the food is also great. A huge win win for all. Nice recipe. I'll have to give it a try. But even if this fits perfectly, I won't stop going to our Chick-Fil-A's because they are great.
