modeled after Chick-Fil-A! I called my mom as soon as my copy arrived, and we decided to put them on the menu for 4th of July.
We were traveling for the 4th, so I prepared the breading in advance. I was surprised to see it contained wheat flour, malt powder and powdered sugar!
This is what the flour mixture looked like after it had been mixed. I made a double batch.
To bread the chicken, you sprinkle it with a mixture of paprika, salt and pepper. Then you dip it in a mixture of egg, water and milk...and then the flour breading.
It was hot- and frying is messy...so my dad fried them outside. We did just as the recipe said, and used peanut oil.
A fry baby may not have been big enough for the 8 sandwiches we had to make :)
Light coating that was perfectly crispy!
Toasting the buns! I like to make all my bread, but for that authentic taste, we purchased hamburger buns.
Top with a couple pickles...or for me, LOTS of pickles! The taste was almost perfect- way to go Food Network! A perfect treat for the holiday :)
