Comment on Chick-fil-A Copycat Chicken Sandwiches by Sandy.

I worked at Chick-Fil-A as a chicken breader/fryer. The fried sandwiches are not marinated in pickle juice the grilled ones are. The fried chicken is dipped in egg wash (eggs and buttermilk) then into what they call “Seasoned Coater.” They are then deep fried in peanut oil. I don’t remember what is in the flour coating as the bag had no ingredients but I did look on the web site once for the nutritional info. It seems like you’ve gotten very close to the original. Oh and when he says he invented the chicken sandwich it’s because he was the first to sell a boneless breast of chicken on a sandwich. It would be hard to eat a chicken sandwich with a bone in it. If someone pointed that out already, I’m sorry for repeating. I read a few comments but there are way too many for me to read them all. Happy eating!
