We find ourselves in something of a dilemma: we love Chick-fil-A’s signature chicken sandwich but we’re not so crazy about one thing: The nutritional value! Each one is packing 440 calories, 1400mg of sodium and 60mg of cholesterol.
Would you like a side of Lipitor with that?
Oh yeah, and that whole thing about Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy’s statements about supporting the “biblical definition of marriage” and his generous contributions to Focus on the Family and other anti-gay groups give us an upset stomach.
Luckily, there’s a solution that fulfills both our poultry cravings and our need to avoid indulging bigots disguised as principled men of religion: It’s the Hilah Johnson chicken sandwich!
Johnson—who’s been making cooking videos with her partner, Christopher Sharpe, since 2010—has put together a simple recipe that mirrors the infamous chain’s namesake sammy.
As Johnson explains, “I love fried chicken sandwiches at Chick-fil-A. The problem is, I have a lot of gay friends and I love them, too. And Chick-fil-A has made it pretty clear through their political affiliations that they don’t really love the gay people so much. So I can’t really support a company like that.”
Hilah, you didn’t just take the words right out of our mouths, you left more room in there for us to shovel in your sandwiches!
