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

I actually made a copycat Chick-Fil-A sandwich of my own with the pickle juice brining. I must note, I’ve never enjoyed their sandwiches with pickles, but I thought that trying to capture that essence was essential to my experience. That being said, the pickle juice brining was AWESOME. It gave them just the right saltiness with just the slightest hint of pickle in the meat that was fantastic.
