Comment on Chick-fil-A Copycat Chicken Sandwiches by Kathe.

I love Chick Fil A and have seen other copy cat recipes. I’ve heard the real secret to their yummy chicken is that they brine it in dill pickle juice. Anyone know for sure???

My son tells me that he has a friend who worked at a Chick Fil A and this is what they did. My husband considers himself a fried chicken expert, & we’ve even gone to New Orleans to eat at Willie Mae’s Scotch House. Brining the chicken in pickle juice is also the secret ingredient for other famous restaurants.
