TGIF!! I have been so busy today running errands in the sweltering heat so I do apologize for the late post for Frugal Friday. I guess better late than never plus you can always do this recipe tomorrow. So I love Chick-Fil-a and my family eats there at least once a week but that can be costly for a family of four. I found this recipe for the Chick-fil-a sandwich and it is definitely a great dupe for the real deal and dollars less. Thank you Cincyshopper!!
Here is what you will need:
2 boneless skinless chicken breast
1/2 cup pickle juice
1/4 cup milk
1 cup flour
2 tbsp. powdered sugar
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp celery salt
1/2 tsp basil
1 cup peanut oil for frying
4 buns (buttered and toasted)
Put chicken in zippered bag and pound gently with the flat side of a mallet until about 1/2″ thick.
Cut each breast into 2 equal pieces.
Marinate chicken in the pickle juice for about an hour
Beat together egg and milk in a bowl.
Mix together the flour, sugar, and spices in another bowl.
Heat the oil in a skillet to about 350.
Dip each chicken piece into the egg covering both sides, then coat in flour on each side.
Fry each chicken piece for 2 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through.
Place on paper towels to absorb any excess oil
Then serve on toasted buns with pickle slices.
