Copycat Baked Spicy Chick-Fil-A Sandwich




I LOVE Chick-Fil-A and even worked at one in college. Unfortunately I live far away from one now, way too long to drive when I have a craving. So after discovering this recipe, I decided I needed to figure out how to make it myself. Plus this is baked, so it's a wee bit healthier! Reduce or omit the cayenne pepper and chili powder if you don't want it to be spicy. Makes 6 sandwiches.

6 (4-ounce)s chicken breasts (flattened)
2/3 cup Heart Smart Bisquick
1/2 cup dried parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 tablespoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon white or black pepper
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper powder
6 hamburger buns
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons melted butter
smart balances spread


Preheat oven to 450. Mix dry ingredients in ziplock bag. Whisk egg and milk with a fork. Dip each piece of chicken into the egg mixture using a fork, letting excess drip off, and place in the ziplock bag. Shake and transfer chicken to a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Repeat with rest of chicken. Drizzle melted butter over the chicken, using a tiny spoon. Bake for 6 minutes, turn and bake for 6 minutes more, or until chicken is done (165 degrees internal). Remove chicken from oven and set the pan on the counter. Turn off oven. Lightly butter the inside of the buns with smart balance. Place buns in oven on a baking sheet for 5 minutes to lightly toast. Serve chicken on toasted buns with your favorite dipping sauce and two pickles slices :)

  1. Awesome! I love Chic-fil-A as well and the spicy sandwich is one of my favorite! Our closest is about an hour away, but not a direction we go often. I will be trying this out!
