What we are Eating - Chick-Fil-lay Chicken Sandwiches

Chick-Fil-Lay Chicken Sandiches
adapted from Centless Deals
I decided to try these chicken sandwiches because we love the copy cat Chick-Fil-Lay nuggets that I've made for awhile.  Well, these were a huge hit.  My husband said that it was the best chicken sandwich he has ever had and wants them for his birthday dinner so that says a lot!  

  • 2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
  • ½ cup Pickle Juice
  • 2 Eggs
  • ¼ cup Milk
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 2 tbsp Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp Black Pepper
  • ½ tsp Garlic Powder
  • ½ tsp Celery Salt
  • ½ tsp Basil
  • 1 cup Peanut Oil for frying
  • 4 Buns (buttered and toasted)
  • Pickle Slices!
  1. Put chicken in zippered bag and pound gently with the flat side of a mallet until about ½" thick.
  2. Cut each breast into 2 equal pieces.
  3. Marinate chicken in the pickle juice for about an hour.
  4. Beat together egg and milk in a bowl.
  5. Mix together the flour, sugar, and spices in another bowl.
  6. Heat the oil in a skillet to about 350.
  7. Dip each chicken piece into the egg covering both sides, then coat in flour on each side.
  8. Fry each chicken piece for 2 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through.
  9. Place on paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
  10. Then serve on toasted buns with pickle slices.
