DIY Chik-Fil-A

Remember last year when that whole Chick-fil-A thing happened and half the people were all like, "I'm never eating at Chick-fil-A again" and the other half were like, "I'm only eating at Chick-fil-A from now on," and it turned out that most people on both sides were at least slightly lying and everyone took a breath and now Chick-fil-A has just gone back to being a Southern fast food chain with decent fried chicken sandwiches? Yeah, it's all a bit hazy for us here, too.

But one good thing did come out of it: this recipe for Homemade Chick-fil-A Sandwiches which I painstakingly reverse-engineered from the original source. Now you can get all that same salty, crispy, moist, pickle-laden flavor without even leaving your own kitchen!
