My family loves the Spicy Chicken at Chic Fil A. But unfortunately we can order only so much ;) Does anyone have a recipe that closely resembles their spicy chicken - I suspect they brine their chicken, if so, what are the ingredients? What are the spices in the crisp coating?
Please help! Thanks

    Tried this recipe again last night and it was really great. My family loved it!! This time I followed a combination of the recipes posted in both the links provided by Arebe & Anitlope (Thanks so much guys). I brined the chicken in the pickle juice & made the sauce per liftlovelife link and the rest per the seriouseats link.

    We are currently on a Low-Carb diet, so instead of the flour, I used coarsely powdered walnuts. The Walnut chunks provided a great crust and the taste was so authentic. After the chicken was cooked, we chopped it up, mixed it with veggie salad along with the sauce and voila, we had Chic Fil A's Cobb Salad for dinner!! Seriously Good Eats!
