We so enjoyed these for dinner last night as they were such a fun treat! I haven't had Chik-Fil-A chicken sandwiches in a long time, so it's hard for me to compare, but no matter, these were very tasty. We tried them just with the pickles, as well as with ranch dressing, honey mustard, and with tartar sauce. For me, I liked it best with the tartar, but my DH preferred the ranch and honey mustard. Each sandwich was topped with the pickles. Love what the pickle juice marinade does to these as well as the celery seed (used it instead of celery salt). Yum! Thanks Dee, for sharing!
