Yummy! I haven't had Chick Fil A's Chicken Salad in a long time but this was great. I halved the recipe because I only had one cup of chicken and omitted the sugar. It was very good..thx for a keeper!
This is very close to the actual Chick-Fil-A recipe. The only difference is we used 1/2 chargrilled chicken and 1/2 fried chicken breast with some of the breading removed. Due to the chicken already being seasoned, we never added any sugar, salt or pepper. Great recipe!
I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I'm about to. One thing I'd like to add is that, having worked at a Chick-Fil-A, I know that they make their salad with leftover breakfast filets. So to get the right flavor, you need fried chicken (never boiled) and you need to peel off some, but not all, of the breading before mincing the chicken. Fried is the real secret of this recipe!
I used to work at Chick-fil-a and I ate these sandwiches all the time. This tastes very close, if not exactly the same, to the real thing. Very yummy!
