1. Grab some plump chicken breasts, they don’t need to be organic or special in any way, although if you’re one of those paranoid health nuts then I wouldn’t be making a fried chicken sandwich.
2. Cut said chicken in half so the thickness is roughly 1/4″. If you get big chicken you could probably cut them in half the other way have 4 smaller chicken pieces.
3. Soak this in the brine, which is salt, sugar, pickle juice and warm water until the sugar and salt dissolves. We used pickles straight from the jar so if a few fall in, let them stay.
4. Refrigerate covered for 2 to 3 hours. Any longer and it doesn’t add additional flavor and if it’s too long it could ruin everything.
5. Mix your dry rub in one bowl, your dry mixture in another bowl and your wet mixture in a third bowl. You are now ready for that chicken as soon as that chicken is ready for you.
6. Take the chicken out, pat it dry, add on your dry rub, then toss it into your dry mixture, then into your wet mixture back into your dry mixture bringing along some drops of wet mixture to form flavor chunks in your breading.
7. Deep fry for 6 minutes at 375°F
8. Toast some traditional hamburger buns with butter, layer on about 3 to 4 pickles on the bottom bun, then your delicious chicken and finish it off with the top bun.
​You’ve got the traditional chick-fil-A stack up sandwich, simple, elegant, full of MSG, pickle flavor and salt.
