    I have a better idea–why not dispense with chicken altogether and instead go with one of the many faux-chicken patties in the supermarket? Better for you and better for the environment, not to mention better for the chickens, easier to prepare, and very close to the real thing.

  2. TANK says

    @RICK, I don’t know if you are trying to make people laugh at you with your avalanche of comments this morning, but I read your comment above and it really made me guffaw out loud. I came really close to spilling my iced tea all over my desk!

  3. mike/ says

    when they finally opened a Chick-Fil-A in Chicago to see what the fuss was all about. they are just a soft hamburger bun with a tasteless breaded slob of chicken and a lone dill pickle. there really is no excitement.

    the only thing you can say about Dan Cathy (why two first names?) is at least he has the cajones to say it out loud when most of the rest pretend; not much but at least you know he hates you…

  4. Rick says

    I’m so sick of you gays being effeminates and doing things that lesbian feminists do, like promoting vegetarianism. Go to a football game or any event where real masculine men are and you won’t see tofu and fake meat, you’ll see MEAT. Because real men eat meat and only diva-worshipping effeminate queens who wish they were Lady Gaga care about saving cows.
    Ask any red-blooded American man what he wants for dinner and he’ll say steak. All you pathetic extremist liberals who try to push a vegetarian lifestyle are making other gay men like me look bad because if we want to be treated like real men we need to ACT LIKE REAL MEN and that means eating meat.


  5. Rick says

    Millions of people consume Boca Burger, Morningstar Farm, Gardein and other brands of veggie “chicken” patties every day, including me, so I don’t understand what is “controversial” about what I said, unless some people have just become conditioned to consider every comment I make automatically “controversial”.

    I was quite serious with my comment and did not intend it as a joke.

  6. Adam says

    What were the spices you put in with the flour? And was it just egg or was there anything mixed with it?

  7. Rick says

    To the twerp Little Impostor who dares suggest I’d be a feminist-wannabe vegetarian, get it though your thick skull that we’re not going to convince the straight community that we’re real men if we turn down beef or chicken for faux-patty nonsense.

    Real men eat meat and I’m a real man and you effeminate vegetable lovers are making us look ridiculous.

  8. Fenrox says

    Is rick, ricking himself?

    Rick, you cant call us “you gays” you cant make a point and make crazy generalizations, both get thrown out.

    Also, the people who comment here ARE the kind of horrible caricatures you regularly mention. We got racists, classists, trolls, assholes, queens, apologists, abusers, victims, liars and scum. So just focus up a bit.

  9. Fenrox says

    To the post, This lady is great! I like her almost lazy style, but she is super relate-able and nice.

  10. Caliban says

    Alright, I’ll admit it. I like Chik-Fil-A sandwiches. Admittedly there’s not much to it, but it’s a piece of real chicken instead of that pink goop formed into a patty.

    But I also haven’t eaten at a Chik-Fil-A in years, maybe as long as a decade, due to its connections with Evangelical Christianity and anti-gay attitudes. If you didn’t know about CFA’s anti-gay history already you weren’t paying attention.

    I’ve posted the link to Hilah’s knockoff recipe a few times, most recently yesterday in the comments about Dan Cathy FINALLY admitting what most of us already knew, that they give frequently and generously to anti-gay groups and they’re going to keep doing so. FWIW I’ve made sandwiches using her recipe and (from what I remember) it does taste just like CFA.

  11. BobN says

    I’m pretty sure that you’re not supposed to use wood cutting boards when preparing poultry…

  12. Rick says

    @Fenrox Only posts #1 and #6 in the thread, as well as this one are from me, the real Rick.

    The other two are from Little Kiwi, posting as an impostor, using my name, including the one with the “you gays” terminology.

    I continue to be astounded at how many of you seem to lack the intelligence to discern one from the other.

    I will say this, though. If you read Little Kiwi’s impostor posts, you get some real insight into his own deep-seated emotional problems. They invariably include references to sex with one’s father, which suggests to me that he was molested as a child….and that may explain his gender confusion issues and the general anger and vindictiveness and vitriol that comes through in just about all his comments–he is just projecting his own issues onto others. Really pretty sad. He needs some professional help really badly.

  13. Rick says

    Stop being a Little Impostor! Vegetarianism is for diva-worshipping effeminates and the proof is that straight men like meat, not broccoli, and if you want to be treated like a real man you need to do exactly what most other men do, which is to eat meat!

  14. denison says

    Why not have registration to avoid this base stupidity where there should be accountable conversation?

  15. Tom in long beach says

    Love to watch cooking shows. This girl is great. However,
    People eat fast food cause they are too busy/lazy to cook. I am sure whatever version Burger King or MacDonalds serves will have to do for me. And all the weird real men eat beef comments crack me up. The biggest thing most people relate to is being confident and being considerate (non arrogant). If someone hates me for being gay they are not going to like me more because I have a genuine love of red meat. But they might hate me less if they see I can get the job done and am fair to other people. just sayin.. If you do happen to be a picky eater just be nice when you order your food and don’t look down on us that enjoy a wider variety of foods. That does make people hate us.

  16. Rick says

    Love the video…made me smile…. and that’s all for me today!
    Thanks, Towleroad. Have a great day, everybody!

  17. Cocoamonk says

    Ok, I don’t care. I like chicken, and dislike Chick-fil-a. I like this video. (though, she could have simply told us the ingredients for the wet and dry mixtures instead of saying it was below.) I’m gay, I like meat, and I like watching football. I don’t like meat and football and sports though because “I’m a man” I like meat because it is good. I like football because it is one of the things I enjoy talking about with family. (Go panthers. ^^) So enough with the darn cliche sterotypes. YES, there are some that live them out, but in my experience, not even a quater of gay people are as simple as some lable them out to be.

    Soy-sourced foods (tofu, TVP, soy ‘milk’) will give you moobs.

    OTOH, you won’t get drug resistant salmonella from a soybean that’s been raised in a cage and fed antibiotics its whole life, then pumped full of hypertension-inducing salt solution.

    Roll the dice or starve.

  19. BobN says

    I figure if you’re going to go to the trouble of pounding the chicken breast, mixing an egg mixture, preparing a bread crumb coating, and getting out a frying pan, why not make a nice chicken cotoletta alla Milanese?

  20. Jon says

    The video would’ve been a lot better if she’d listed the ingredients for the wet mixture and the dry mixture. Otherwise it’s nearly useless.

  21. MarkUs says

    Teaching fail. She does a lot of talking and her “lesson” is “you dip it in THIS and then THIS”. Thanks a lot.

  22. Tim says

    I’m with veggie Rick. Plus, is it really surprising that people who make a living abusing animals are also cruel to other humans?

  23. AZEXPAT says

    Chip posted the link, but you could always just google “Hilah cooking.” The recipe ingredients are posted on the site.

  24. AZEXPAT says

    @BOBN – what do suppose people used before they invented plastic cutting boards? Not only do wood boards seem to have inherent anti-bacterial properties, but cleaning the board with a bleach solution works nicely. Plus, wood boards don’t dull your knives as quickly as do alternative ones. You’re welcome.

  25. AZEXPAT says

    Just click on HILAH above and she’ll take you directly to the recipe. Thanks, Hilah! Luv ya!

  26. Darren in atl says

    Here’s the ingredients: Chick-Fil-A Ingredients 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast 1 cup pickle juice (sour dill is my favorite) 1 egg 1/4 cup milk 1/2 cup flour 1 tablespoon powdered sugar 1/2 teaspoon paprika 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 1/4 teaspoon celery salt 1/4 teaspoon dried basil Optional: up to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper for a spicy sandwich Oil for frying (about a cup)

  27. Rick says

    “Soy-sourced foods (tofu, TVP, soy ‘milk’) will give you moobs.”

    Never heard that before; I do like nipples I can sink my teeth into, though. Always have. LOL

    “No fake meat for me either, sorry can’t stomach that crap”

    You know why people think that? Because they have either bought it themselves and prepare it the wrong way, trying to treat it just like they would meat, which leads to disaster…..or they have eaten it mis-prepared by someone else.

    The basic difference between meat and soy-based faux-meat is that you cook fat OUT of meat, but you have to cook fat INTO faux-meat. With faux-meat, you should use LOTS of vegetable oil in its preparation and then after it is done, spoon some of the vegetable oil that it has been cooked in back over the patty or the nuggets or whatever….which adds moisture and flavor.

    Also, soy burns easily, so it needs to be cooked on low heat and turned very frequently.

    If you do those things, I promise you will have a positive experience.

    And the new non-soy QUORN line of products have a texture that is even more like real meat than the traditional soy products….but with these, too, you have to cook in some fat to make them taste really good.

  28. Rick says

    Stop trolling you Little Impostor, I would never stoop so low as to behave like an effeminate militant leftist feminist queer by forgoing manly masculine meat eating so I could some hippie lesbian tofu crap.

    Real men eat meat and if you effeminate diva-worshippers want to be accepted you need to stop flaunting your effeminate hippie lifestyle affectations that you learned by listening to lesbian vegetarians and start being real men. How many men in the NFL would turn down a steak or hot dog for some tofu? NONE. So if you want to be accepted you need to stop having limp wrists and eating lesbian tofu.

  29. epic says

    just so we don’t get it twisted unfermented soy products contain a chemical that mimics estrogen, in very small quantities the amount of soy protein you would need to cause a outward change such as “man boobs” would be more then you could possibly eat…the real concerns is a small segment of the male population have prostates that are overly androgen sensitive, these can cause cancer that is the real concern. As for replacing meat with fraken-soy foods as long as you do the research and find out where the company obtains its soy protein isolate, the basis for much of these foods, one being a cheap extraction involving Hexane(which is super bad for you)…just know where your food comes from… vegetarians/vegans would be best served by limiting all processed foods and eating real vegetables, not soy based crap…all things in moderation…

  30. Kenneth says

    Rick take your meds you pathetic piece of F*&% everyone knows you are just trolling for attention. Your favorite glory hole must not be getting much action lately. God just man up and seek counseling already.

  31. Judy says

    Sorry, Rick (or “Rick”) — those fake chicken patties are full of wheat, milk, eggs, and soy. Want to guess which one will send me and thousands of others into anaphylactic shock?

  32. BobN says

    “@BOBN – what do suppose people used before they invented plastic cutting boards?”

    Wood, of course, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t better than plastic for poultry nowadays.

  33. james says

    For me the best part about Chik-Fil-A is the Chik-Fil-A sauce and you can make that at home too by mixing smokey tasting bbq sauce with honey mustard.

  34. That Guy in DC says

    Love the video!

    The only problem is that a Chik-fil-of-crap sandwich is just that. Check out the ingredients on their site–there seems to be hundreds that go into their “simple” chicken sandwich–here’s just what is in the pickles: cucumbers, water, vinegar, salt, lactic acid, calcium chloride, alum, sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate [preservatives], natural flavors, polysorbate 80, yellow 5, blue 1.

    Thank god for that food coloring keeping my pickle a test kitchen/consumer tested green! Amen!

    I would much rather eat the gay friendly sandwich in the vid!

  35. luke says

    hey guys, hilah has an official site which lists all the ingredients and what not, and all these things didn’t get included when whoever listed it to blip. you can find the page for the recipe here:

    /not a shill, was curious myself what went in it, hooray for google

  36. Skooter McGoo says

    I tried their food once and found it to be quite unedible. If I want crap to eat it would sure be the spot. The fact that they want me dead because I love men just makes them Dominionist scum IMO.

  37. Randy says

    Before it was explained to me, I always wondered what “Chick-filla” was. It sounded gross, so I never ate there.

  39. AZEXPAT says

    @BOBN – if you are like me, you have a fruit board, a veggie/garlic/onion board, and a meat board. But again, nothing wrong with using a properly cleaned wood board for poultry. Hilah did okay. She’s a lover of food, and teh gay.

  40. Derek Pearce says

    Cute vid. Andy for the love of god I and others have said this a million times but I won’t stop saying it: get a registered commenting system. I don’t get why you don’t? Does it cost a lot of money? It certainly won’t lower your traffic numbers– in fact it may even increase them. At least give us an explanation as to why you won’t, please?

  41. Flip says

    How about if you eat wherever you want to eat and not worry about what the owners of the restaurant believe in? It’s really none of your business. People can believe whatever they want, and I will fight for their right to do so. I will eat at Chick Fil A a couple of times a week because it’s the best-tasting fast food and healthier than most other quick foods available. Maybe if you people didn’t worry so much about what everyone else thinks and believes, you’d be happier and be taken more seriously.

  42. Guy says

    “I’m with veggie Rick. Plus, is it really surprising that people who make a living abusing animals are also cruel to other humans?”

    Seems to me the vegans/vegetarians are the ones looking down on others, as your sentence shows.

    Stick to your diet. You have every right to. There’s no need to proselytize or pass judgment on others.

  43. Guy says

    Someone please tell Dan Cathy that monosodium glutamate is a natural product, and countless scientific studies have not been able to confirm the ill effects people claim from ingesting it.

  44. Steve Scarborough says

    When I am King, comment trolls will be harvested and formed into little trollpatties that will then be seasoned to mask their bitterness and served on buns with pickles. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm mmm mmm.

  45. ELIZ says

    I love Chic-fil-a!!! Way to go Mr. Cathy for not being scared to stand up for what he believes in.

  46. Josh says

    Pathetic waste of time . The joke’s on you. You’re so hung up on hate, you failed to check how much money Chick-Ail-A brought in from the gay “protest” Save your wit for something more lucrative.

  47. Mike says

    LOL WELL… I support Chick-Fil-A, their great food and their right to THEIR opinion just as you have YOUR right. Only difference is, I also support the DOMA so have a great day and btw, good luck in nov….lmao
