  • Chick-fil-A sauce:

  • In a small bowl whisk together mayonnaise, honey, mustard, lemon juice, and bbq sauce.
  • Fried Chicken:

  • In a medium bowl whisk together wet ingredients, add chicken, making sure to coat evenly. Allow chicken to marinate for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, in a medium-sized pot, over medium-high, heat oil to 325 degrees F While oil heats, in a medium bowl, whisk togethers dry ingredients.
  • Reserving the marinade, remove the chicken to a plate. Whisk the egg into the marinade. Dip the chicken into the egg mixture, one piece at a time, shaking off excess egg mixture. Dredge chicken pieces in flour mix, making sure to coat evenly on both sides. Repeat the breading process (egg mixture to flour mix) one more time, set chicken aside.

    This recipe was amazing. The whole family loved it. We don't have a chic fil a local so I have only been a couple of times so I can't comment on if the recipe is authentic but it is awesome!

    This is better than Chik Fil A. It's fresher, more flavorful, more satisfying. The sauce is lovely and the chicken is perfectly fried. Cons: I nearly put an egg and 6 cups peanut oil in the marinade because I didn't read the directions first. But otherwise... this whole recipe is keeper!

    This was so close to being great, but it tastes so strongly of pickles that we couldn’t eat it. For reference- we are pickle-haters.

    So crisp and yummy! The chicken was super flavorful after adding the spice. Tastes just like the real thing :)
