It"s time to start making your copycat Chick-fil-A Spicy Deluxe Sandwich. Grab a bowl, in addition to your milk and eggs. Crack the eggs into the bowl, and add the milk. Then, beat them together. Add the chicken to the mixture, and make sure it is thoroughly coated.


Alternatively, you can put the egg and milk mixture into a plastic bag and add the chicken to that. Massage the mixture into the chicken. Then, set it aside.

The next step on the way to your yummy copycat Chick-Fil-A Spicy Deluxe Sandwich is to create the breading for the chicken. Gather together your flour, sugar, salt, pepper, and paprika. Place the ingredients into a bowl (a shallow bowl is best), and mix them together until fully blended.


Take the oil, and add it to a heavy skillet, Dutch oven, or cast iron pan. Heat it up on a medium-high flame until the oil reaches 360 F. Pro tip: A drop of flour in the oil will bubble immediately when it is hot enough.

Take your chicken out of the milk and egg mixture, and put it into the flour mixture. Press down to ensure it is fully coated. Turn it over, and do the same with the other side.

Carefully place the chicken into the pan with the oil. Fry for about six minutes on each side. The chicken should be golden brown when fully cooked and have an internal temperature of 165 F.


Dredge the milk-and-egg-coated chicken in the flour mix, and press the chicken down into it to coat well.

When the chicken is fully cooked, remove it from the pan, and place it on a paper towel to blot excess oil from the chicken. Pour your hot sauce into a bowl large enough to dunk the chicken in, and coat both sides generously with the hot sauce. Then, top the chicken with Pepper Jack cheese, and allow it to rest for five minutes before putting it on the bun.

Once the chicken has rested for five minutes, it"s time to finish putting together your copycat Chick-fil-A Spicy Deluxe Sandwich. Grab a plate, and place the lettuce and tomato onto the bottom part of the bun. Add the cheese-topped chicken to the bun, and put the other half of the bun top on. Repeat with each piece of chicken. Put some hot sauce in a small bowl for necessary dipping purposes. Then, enjoy!
