Personal Notes:
When we lived in Illinois, there wasn't a Chick-fil-A anywhere near us. My kids were deprived and that was unacceptable (because chick-fil-a is delicious) so we had to find an alternative and this was the closest thing we could find. It immediately became a family favorite and now I just use this recipe to make fried chicken with mashed potatoes and little baby green peas instead of just sandwiches.
