A Chicken Sandwich Minus the Bigotry & Some Chicken Nuggets too!

Eat the Chicken, not the bigotry….

I don’t usually blog about controversial topics, but I have to do it.  I am astounded by the stupidity.

I’ve only been to Chik-fil-A a handful of times.  The chicken is good, but it’s the sauce that is delicious.  I went to one recently in Baltimore, MD with my daughter Zoe.  The thing that struck me was that the employees were way too nice.  It actually gave me the creeps.

So, I guess this company is based on lies…  Don’t even get me started about the chain being closed on Sundays!

“The Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect –- regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender. We will continue this tradition in the over 1,600 Restaurants run by independent Owner/Operators. Going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.”

Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich

Makes 4 sandwiches

3 cups peanut oil
1 egg
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
2½ Tbs powdered sugar
½ tsp pepper
2 Tbs salt
2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, halved
4 plain hamburger buns
2 Tbs melted butter
8 dill pickle slices

Heat the peanut oil in a pressure cooker over medium heat to about 400 degrees.

In a small bowl, beat the egg and stir in the milk.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, sugar, pepper, and salt.

Dip each piece of chicken in milk until it is fully moistened.

Roll the moistened chicken in the flour mixture until completely coated.

Drop all four chicken pieces into the hot oil and close the pressure cooker. When steam starts shooting through the pressure release, set the timer for 3 1/2 minutes.

While the chicken is cooking, spread a coating of melted butter on the face of each bun.

When the chicken is done, remove it from the oil and drain or blot on paper towels. Place two pickles on each bottom bun; add a chicken breast, then the top bun.

Note
It is very important that your oil be hot for this recipe. Test the temperature by dropping some of the flour coating into the oil. If it bubbles rapidly, your oil is probably hot enough. It should take about 20 minutes to heat up. To make a “deluxe” chicken sandwich, simply add two tomato slices and a leaf of lettuce. Mayonnaise also goes well on this sandwich–it is a side order at the restaurant.

2 cups chicken breast (Boneless, Skinless, Cubed)

  1. I love it! I’ve made the sandwich a number of times. Pretty easy as long as take care while pressure-frying. I’ve never made the nuggets before but I’ll try them soon, for sure. Without the bigotry.
