A Clone Of A Clone...Gluten and Dairy Free Chick-fil-a Chicken Sandwich

Posted Aug 08 2012 1:39pm
As you can all tell, I am definitely not blogging in real time. If I was, it looks like we eat fried food all the time here! Truth be told, I dread frying foods. I personally don't like fried foods at all, but I live with 3 guys that like the occasional fried eats and treats!

After all the buzz about Chick-fil-a as of late (great article here , by the way), well, a friend of mine posted this video on Facebook and then Tony saw the same recipe on Monday. The man hasn't eaten Chick-fil-a in years due to celiac, so now, after 3 years, the craving hit. So, he emails me the recipe from Hilah Cooking for a Chick-fil-gay sandwich and asks if I would make it for dinner. I figured it would be a fun dinner for the boys and it would distract my brain from thinking about them going to school. It did indeed do both!

I changed the recipe up a bit since, well, I thought I had all the seasonings, but I had apparently forgotten that I had cleaned out my spice cabinet at some point and no longer had a good portion of the spices she called for. I also referred to my fried chicken recipe for the method because I thought the double dip method for the flour would give me a good coating and it did.

Don't forget to butter and toast your buns! Also, pickles and tabasco are a must for us! 

Notes from the boys...this actually tasted more like the traditional sandwich when the chicken was allowed to cool and rest. Gluten free flours have a flavor and I really believe that when they are allowed to rest a little after cooking, the other flavors have a chance to blend into the final product. 

They devoured it! I also served Alexia waffle fries  with this, because seriously, it was a must. 

Have you ever made a restaurant clone recipe? I've never followed a recipe for one before. I've only played with flavors to make my own versions of things we like to eat at restaurants. 

I'm sharing this on Allergy Free Wednesday  and Slightly Indulgent Tuesday .
