chik-fil-a chicken sandwich

i am in love with copycat recipes. i found one for chick-fil-a chicken. the secret is to marinate the chicken in pickle juice and the breading contains powdered sugar. it really makes the difference. i think they were spot on when they copied this one.

    Chick-Fil-A Copycat


    1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
    cup pickle juice (sour dill is my favorite)...i use enough to cover the chicken.
    1/4 c milk
    1 egg
    cup flour
    1 tablespoon powdered sugar
    teaspoon salt
    teaspoon black pepper
    teaspoon garlic powder
    teaspoon celery salt
    teaspoon dried basil
    teaspoon paprika
    Optional: up to teaspoon cayenne pepper for a spicy sandwich

    Oil for frying (about a cup)

    For serving: Buns (buttered and toasted) and pickle slices!

    Instructions

    1.Wrap the chicken loosely between plastic wrap and pound gently with the flat side
    of a meat tenderizer until about inch thick all around.

    2.Cut into two pieces, as even as possible.

    3.Marinate in the pickle juice for 30 minutes to one hour (add a teaspoon of Tabasco
    sauce now for a spicy sandwich)....i did not use Tabasco sauce.

    4.Beat the egg with the milk in a bowl.

    5.Combine the flour, sugar, and spices in another bowl.

    6.Dip the chicken pieces each into the egg on both sides, then coat in flour on both
    sides.

    7.Heat the oil in a skillet (1/2 inch deep) to about 345-350.

    8.Fry each cutlet for 2 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through.

    9.Blot on paper and serve on toasted buns with pickle slices.

    Seven or eight years ago, my Son worked at one of our local Chick-Fil-A restaurants.
    I remember him telling me years ago, they didn't use egg in their milk wash for the chicken. So, I called him yesterday to confirm, and yep...I remembered correctly. :-0
    ((I don't know about any of the other restaurants, only the one where he was employed.))
    Don't know if it would or wouldn't make a difference in the breading, crust, texture, or flavor.
