How to Make a Grilled Chicken Sandwich at Chick-fil-A
1. Horizontally cut the chicken breasts in half. Half a
breast should be placed in a plastic bag and gently pounded until it is an
equal thickness using a meat tenderizer’s flat side. Although the precise
thickness doesn’t really matter, a constant thickness guarantees that the meat
cooks at the same time.
2. In a bowl or sealable bag, combine all the marinade
ingredients. Shake or stir thoroughly to mix.
3. Fill the basin with the sliced chicken breasts. If you’re
using a bag, make sure it’s closed tightly, rub the marinade into the meat, and
set it on a rimmed pan in case it leaks. In the refrigerator, give the chicken
at least 30 minutes—if not more—to marinate. Ideal is two hours.
4. Preheat the grill or grill pan to medium-high before
beginning to cook the chicken.
5. Take the chicken out of the marinade and use a paper
towel to pat it dry.
6. Combine salt, black pepper, onion, garlic, and celery
salt in a small bowl to make the spice mixture. Use the seasoning mixture to
season the chicken.
7. Oil the grill grates by brushing.
8. Grill the chicken breasts on the first side for four to
five minutes before turning them over. When the chicken is ready to flip, the
grates should come loose easily. To get the chicken to get attractive grill
markings, don’t mess with it.

wire rack or baking sheet after the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees

buns. The buns should be toasted for around 30 seconds on the grill or under
