Chick-Fil-A Sandwiches


Pinterest Inspired

Finally after 3 years attending University of Southern Indiana, the administrators are using my tuition wisely!! The food serves board has officially announced that the campus will be home to Chick-Fil-A in the fall semester of 2016. Goodbye diet and goodbye paycheck!! Until that glorious day, this copycat recipe honestly may just give the sandwich a run for its money. Plus it helps to have liquid crack sauce!


  • 4 large chicken breasts, halved and pounded
  • 1 c. dill pickle juice
  • 2 c. flour
  • 4 Tbsp. powdered sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 c. milk
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. celery salt
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • canola oil
  • buns
  • 2 Tbsp. butter

For Sauce:

  • 1 c. mayonnaise
  • 1/2 c. O’Charley’s honey mustard
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. BBQ sauce
  • Dill pickle chips


  1. Prep the chicken breasts either the night before or the morning of the meal. Slice each chicken breasts in half and place in large Ziplock bag with pickle juice. Chill in refrigerator and allow to marinade for at least 4 hours. (**Note: Some of my chicken breasts were big enough I went ahead and cut then in half again so they would fit on a bun. There is the possibility of getting four sandwiches out of one chicken breast.
  2. Add eggs, egg whites, and milk into a bowl and whisk.
  3. Combine the flour, sugar, and spices in another bowl.
  4. Heat oil either in a Fry Daddy™ or a cast iron skillet to about 345-350*
  5. Dip each chicken breast piece into the egg mixture on both sides, then coat in flour mixture on both sides. Repeat this step one more time.
  6. Place chicken breasts in the oil and fry each cutlet for approximately 3 minutes on both sides, or until golden and cooked through.
  7. Transfer to a plate lines with paper towels to drain excess grease.
  8. Combine all the sauce ingredients, excluding the pickles in a small bowl.
  9. To construct sandwich, lightly butter the buns and place in a skillet to “toast”. Lather  the sauce on the inside of both buns and add pickles.

Yields approximately 8-12 sandwiches depending on the size of breasts
