Instructions: How to Cook Chick Fil A Sandwich Air Fryer

  1. Place the chicken breasts in a resealable bag and pound them to an even thickness. Marinate the chicken in the pickle juice for at least 30 minutes, or overnight for best results.
  2. In a shallow dish, whisk together the milk and a pinch of salt. In another dish, combine the flour, powdered sugar, paprika, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper.
  3. Preheat the air fryer to 370°F (190°C).
  4. Remove the chicken from the pickle juice and dip each piece into the milk mixture, then dredge in the seasoned flour, making sure to coat evenly.
  5. Lightly spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray or brush with melted butter. Place the breaded chicken breasts in the basket, making sure they are not touching.
  6. Cook in the air fryer for 7-8 minutes, then flip the chicken and cook for an additional 7-8 minutes, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) and is golden brown and crispy.
  7. Toast the brioche buns in the air fryer for 1-2 minutes until lightly golden.
  8. Assemble the sandwiches by placing a chicken breast on the bottom bun, topping with a slice of pickle, and finishing with the top bun.
  9. Serve hot and enjoy the homemade Chick-fil-A sandwich straight from the air fryer!
