Ha! You’re right.

So many people have suggested brining in pickle juice that now I kind of want to try it, just to see. It does sound terrible, but maybe it’s actually some crazy secret that we’re missing out on?

Chick-fil-A Copycat Chicken Sandwiches
We do the same thing on road trips! The sandwiches are just as good the next day. Especially when you’re driving in the morning before the sun comes up, listening to a road trip mix and heading toward some awesome adventure somewhere. I definitely recommend it.

Chick-fil-A Copycat Chicken Sandwiches
When I moved from Philly to New England, Chick-Fil-A was one of the things I missed the most. I got a lot of shit for it from foodier friends, and since there are no locations up there, I could never prove the awesomeness. It was my word against theirs.
When we moved from Portland back to Philly in June, we ate Chick-Fil-A sandwiches and waffle fries while we sat on cardboard boxes in the new apartment. It was amazing.
I know it’s fast food, but being spitting distance from chicken sammies any day of the week is one of the biggest perks of being back here.
Welcome to the club. (: I can’t wait to try this recipe!
