I may have mentioned it before, but my teenage self spent a little time working for Chick-fil-A. I honestly enjoyed it far more than you’d expect for a minimum wage fast-food joint. More than the experience though, I LOVED the food. I could devour chargrilled chicken sandwich, completely destroy a box of Chick’n Minis, inhale a spicy chicken sandwich…you get it.
But, a Celiac diagnosis destroyed all of that for my family. And though, we have never been healthier and my husband has never felt better, I still find myself missing some of my old gluten-filled indulgences.
So, after a particularly long day of Pokemon Hunting, we wanted something quick, easy, and delicious for lunch. For a few months now, I’ve been dying to sink my teeth into an incredible juicy and tender, but gluten-free, chicken sandwich. It’s taken a few tries to really perfect my recipe, but I think I’d challenge CFA with this sandwich!
So without another wasted minute:
1 tbsp paprika
2 tbsp garlic powder
2 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
2 cups olive oil
1 package Schar gluten-free hamburger buns
For an even more authentic experience, butter the bun (I used ghee!) and quickly heat it in a skillet. This softens everything, and just gives it a delicious taste.
Top with lettuce and pickles, and enjoy!
Until next time,
