Homemade Chick-fil-A Sandwiches

We need to talk about my homemade Chick-fil-A chicken sandwiches for a minute. Well, quite honestly, it deserves it’s own blog post. Let’s not lie.

I was browsing Pinterest one evening, as usual, and came across a handful of Chick-fil-A sandwich recipes. I looked at all of them and one thing stayed the same in each recipe: the chicken was marinated in pickle juice. I had heard that was a rumor, but I didn’t think it actually could be true. I mean, Kevin HATES pickles, yet he loves some Chick-fil-A. I decided it was worth finding out myself, and well…you should be glad that I did.

We had friends over during the week and they brought over some delicious fish and rice. That rice. That fish. I had no idea healthy could taste that good.

We ate on the deck and enjoyed our first night under the lights! I still love this house project as much as I did the day we did it.

Speaking of good meals…I made homemade Chick-fil-A sandwiches this week and they pretty much tasted like the real thing, but they’re way healthier. Don’t you worry your pretty little heads…I’ll g’head and plan on sharing the recipe since a lot of people have asked already!

Another exciting thing that happened this week…NHL PLAYOFFS started! Truly the best time of the year. Gracie’s pumped, too.

On Thursday night, Kev and I had a little date night out at the Louisville City FC soccer game downtown. We had great seats and the weather was perrrrrfect! After the game, we watched the first period of the Blues game at a nearby bar and headed home for the second two. It wasn’t the outcome I was hoping for…but that’s why they are seven game series!

My Friday night was pretty legit if you ask me. I curled up on the couch, popped in the movie, The Holiday and watched the whole thing, uninterrupted. I also read a chapter or two of the book Wild (so good so far)! It was every female introvert’s dream night.

Saturday, however, was a bit more exciting. I ran a few errands and tried to find a Derby dress (no dice), and ended up at Papalino’s with some friends while Kevin worked (poor guy). Their veggie pizza though? Prettttty perfect.

Once Kevin got off work, we all headed back to our house for some Euchre and beers.

Today Sara and I took a little trip out to Costco so I could see what it was all about. I’m a fan. Especially because they have these amazing chocolates!
