Copycat Chick-fil-A Recipe

A Copycat recipe that really does taste like the original…cross my heart. Recipe by

  • Total Time: 14 minutes


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup (or enough to cover chicken) dill pickle juice
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • Oil for frying (about a cup)


  1. Pour pickle juice over chicken and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour, take the chicken out of the refrigerator the last 15 minutes to allow the breasts to come up to room temperature.
  2. Beat the egg with the milk in a bowl. Combine the flour, sugar, and spices in another bowl.
  3. Blot the breasts dry with a paper towel and dip the chicken pieces into the egg mixture coating both sides, then coat in flour.
  4. Heat enough oil (somewhere around a cup depending on the size of your skillet) in a skillet until it’s 345 to 350 degrees. Fry the chicken for about two minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through. Serve on toasted buns with pickle slices.


To quickly tenderize your chicken breast slice the breast horizontally midway through the breast.

For a spicy sandwich add up to a teaspoon of tabasco sauce in the marinade and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper in the flour mixture.
