Leopards cannot change their spots. Chick-Fil-A may SAY they're ending their support of anti-gay groups, but that doesn't mean that they're not funneling money to those anti-gay groups.
Funny how this topic came up, and three right-wing, anti-gay trolls suddenly appeared from the Politics sections to throw in their two cents' worth.
If you want a perfectly decent chicken sandwich you can make at home, try this:
1. Take one chicken breast, insert it between two pieces of waxed paper, and pound it with a meat mallet until it is about 3/8" thick.
2. Dredge the chicken breast through one well-beaten egg, then dredge through flour to which a little salt, pepper, dried oregano and dried basil has been added, so that the chicken breast is well coated.
3. Drop the chicken breast in a pan with enough oil to just cover the chicken filet. The oil needs to be hot: about 350 degrees.
4. Keeping the heat constant, cook your filet until golden brown. Remove, and serve on a hamburger bun with lettuce, tomato, thinly sliced onion and the condiments of your choice. (I prefer mayonnaise.)
This will save you about four bucks and you'll end up with a perfectly decent filet of chicken sandwich!
[Regarding Southern-fried chicken: to lower the amount of trans-fat you get in the chicken, DON'T use vegetable shortening (which is hydrogenated to make it solid at room temperature) and instead use two parts lard to one part butter for frying. Soak the chicken in milk, then dredge with flour with your choice of herbs -- I use salt, pepper, basil, paprika, onion powder and garlic powder -- and fry at 350 degrees. Don't crowd the pan with chicken -- use two pans, if necessary; and keep the pans covered while cooking to retain moisture. Check every ten minutes: when one side is golden brown, turn the pieces of chicken and cook until the other side is golden brown.]
There are some tricks we learn growing up in the South! :-)))
