Daylon’s Healthier Fried Chicken Sandwich

Written by:

Maia James


My kids love a Chic-fil-A fried chicken sandwich, but for obvious reasons, I am not a fan. Recently, my husband cracked the code! What follows is his recipe for a healthier fried chicken sandwich.

Obviously this is still a fried food, so I am not going to claim it’s truly healthful. But we use all organic ingredients and cook the chicken in avocado oil.

Healthier Fried Chicken Sandwich Ingredients

Cooking Instructions

  1. Pound chicken breasts to even thickness, 1/4-1/2 inches thick.
  2. Use eggs to create an egg wash in a bowl.
  3. Combine all dry ingredients to create a flour mix in a bowl.
  4. Dip chicken breasts into egg wash, then into the flour, then egg wash, then flour again.
  5. Add avocado oil to a cast iron skillet, and fry the breasts for 3-4 minutes on each side.
  6. Serve on a bun with any toppings you like – we add pickles and spicy mayo.

Stay sane,
