Chicken Delight

Get Your Fried-Bird Fix Without The Guilt With Hilah Johnson’s Chick-Fil-Gay

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!

    I made these as well. It’s a seriously good recipe.

  • Blah, Blah...huh?

    I’ve never had these kind of sandwiches, not even the kind at McDonalds and other places with the chicken, pickles, and Bun/biscuit. What is it that tastes so good, is the bun really buttery or something? Seems kinda like a dry white-bread-turning-to-paste in your mouth type of a deal..but, the filet looks good. Put some marinara and mozz on it for me though.

    I saw warning for people with peanut allergies that Chick fil a fries their chicken in peanut oil. It’s more expensive but that’s what they use.
