Chick-Fil-A Chicken Sandwich
2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, split horizontally into 4 cutlets
2 teaspoons paprika
2 tablespoons black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon powdered MSG (optional)
1 cup milk
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons powdered non-fat milk
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 quarts peanut oil
4 soft hamburger buns, toasted in butter
8 dill pickle chips
Dissolve 1/2 cup kosher salt and 1/4 cup sugar in 1 quart of cold water. Place chicken breasts in a zipper-lock bag and add brine. Transfer to refrigerator and let sit for at least 6 hours and up to overnight.
Meanwhile, combine paprika, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and MSG (if using), in a small bowl. Set aside
Whisk together milk and eggs in a medium bowl. Set aside.
Combine flour, non-fat milk powder, baking powder, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, 2 teaspoons sugar, and 2 tablespoons of spice mixture in a large bowl and whisk until homogenous. Drizzle 3 tablespoons milk/egg mixture into flour mixture and rub with fingertips until the flour mixture is coarse like wet sand.
In a large wok, deep fryer, or Dutch oven, preheat oil to 350°F.
Remove chicken breasts from brine and pat dry with paper towels. Season on all sides with remaining spice mixture. Transfer to milk mixture and turn to coat. Working one cutlet at a time, allow excess milk mixture to drip off then transfer to flour mixture. Turn to coat, pile extra mixture on top of cutlet, and press down firmly to adhere as much mixture as possible to the meat. Lift cutlet, shake off excess flour, then slowly lower into hot oil. Repeat with remaining breasts.
Cook, turning breasts occasionally until golden brown and crisp on all sides, and chicken is cooked through, about 4 minutes total. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
Place 2 pickles on each bottom bun and a fried chicken cutlet on top. Close sandwiches, then cover with an overturned bowl or aluminum foil and allow to rest for 2 minutes to steam buns. Serve immediately.

Sometimes it doesn’t matter how long I have slaved over the stove to prepare a great meal, there is bound to be that one guest who is difficult to please. So today I am going to share with you one of my go-to recipes when I have a picky eater in the house.
Chick-Fil-A is known for their delicious chicken and one of my favorite items is the chicken nuggets. Who doesn’t like nuggets? So when I am entertaining guests, I make a small batch of Chick-Fil-A style nuggets just in case I encounter that picky person. And of course, kids absolutely love these too.
New Secret Recipe
1 lb chicken breasts, cut into bite sized nuggets
3/4 cup bread crumbs made from dry, toasted bread
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon Lawry’s seasoning salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup buttermilk
2 eggs, whisked
vegetable oil, for frying
In a large bowl, add chicken pieces and buttermilk. Allow chicken to sit in the buttermilk as long as you can (at least one hour, but preferably overnight).
Place dried bread into a food processor and process until fine.
Pulse in the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, sugar, seasoning salt, pepper and paprika.
In a large dutch oven (or deep fryer if you have one), heat 2 inches of vegetable [or peanut] oil to 350 degrees over medium-high heat.
Transfer flour mixture to a bowl and begin setting up your dipping station. Whisk eggs in a separate bowl.
Piece by piece, remove chicken from buttermilk and dredge in bread crumb/flour mixture, then egg wash, then back into bread crumb/flour mixture.
Once all pieces have been coated, you can start putting them into the hot oil. Be careful not to add too many chicken pieces to the oil, so that all pieces will cook evenly.
Cook for about 1 1/2 minutes, then flip chicken pieces over, if necessary, and cook for another 1 1/2- 2 minutes. Chicken is ready when the coating is medium golden brown.
Transfer chicken pieces to a paper towel lined plate to absorb any excess oil. Repeat with remaining chicken.
