Excellent! Used tenderloins instead of whole breasts, but otherwise followed the recipe.

Made these last night and they were AMAZING. Used about 1/8 cup salt in the brine and cut the salt in the spice mix in half. Also used half the paprika and half the cayenne and didn't use the powdered milk and they came out amazingly. Made a homemade chick fil a sauce and would not change anything about these sandwiches.

I made this exact recipe and it tasted just like a chick- fil a sandwich the best recipe by far I would definitely make it again easy and quick to make
