Pickle juice is a well-known liquid used in brining chicken and is the secret ingredient to perfectly moist and flavorful chicken in this crispy chicken sandwich recipe. So next time you finish off a jar of pickles, save the juice for brining chicken!

I added hot sauce with the pickle juice during the marinade process for extra spicy chicken sandwiches. These turned out really good. I used thin slice chicken breasts instead of pounding a thicker cutlet and found that it worked perfectly. The hardest part of this recipe was shaking off all the excess flour because it sticks easily to the egg mixture. All in all great recipe that I would make again.

We don't have a Chicfila where I live, so this was the closest I could get to one of their sandwiches. I used brioche buns and served them with waffle fries. Impressed!

This recipie is all over the place but the author reduced the original and there's too much of the powdered sugar. Reduce the sugar in half. You can get a bit of a candy like crunch

The chicken didn’t crisp up as expected but it was definitely crisp. Maybe the difference between fast food chicken and Air Fried chicken. But man oh man, it was good. The spices added great flavor and the chicken was juicy and tasted great. Definitely a repeat recipe in the future. We even made some chik-fil-A sauce from a recipe online. It was delicious. Next time you crave Chik-Fil-A, make this. You will enjoy it and wont have the fast food shame that follows after eating out.

My family absolutely loved this meal, it was so easy to make and we don’t have to go to Chick-Fil-A and wait in line for 30 mins just to order.

My first attempt at cooking with my new cooker. I used GF flour, due to an allergy and it turned out amazing! Haven’t had “fried” chicken in years, so I was thrilled! My hubby, who is not gluten intolerant also loved it.

This sandwich was delicious!! Me and my sister enjoyed this so much. We used a mixture of hot sauce & butter plus mayo on each side of the toasted bun and it was a 10/10
