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

I am presently a “RMD” (Restaurant Marketing Manager) for a local Chick-fil-A. It is NOT soaked in pickle juice and the buns are only buttered once, before they go through the toaster. You do not have to be “uber” religious, in fact, my boss is jewish. They are however very selective with their “owner–operators”. This is their way of making sure that their business and beliefs are not compromised. I don’t think anyone will ever perfect the recipe because certain ingredients are “top secret”! As always, it has been my pleasure to clear up a few misconceptions!

Malcolm Bedell is co-author of the critically acclaimed "Eating in Maine: At Home, On the Town, and On the Road," as well as Brocavore, a blog focusing on street food culture, and the junk food-centric "Spork & Barrel." His contributions include Serious Eats, Down East, L.A. Weekly, The Guardian, and The Huffington Post and his food truck, "'Wich, Please," was named "Hottest Restaurant in Maine" for 2015 by Eater. Finally, he finds it very silly to be trying to write this in the third person.
