By now, you’ve probably heard that Chick-Fil-A doesn’t like gay people. Which should only be shocking to anyone that doesn’t already know they are essentially a Christian fast food hate organization. Okay, that’s really hyperbolic, but the company adheres to its Christian principals through and through, including not opening on Sunday.
That they hate gay people is about as shocking as Anderson Cooper coming out of the closet.
Don’t like their politics? Don’t buy their food. If only it were that simple because Chick-Fil-A’s food is so tasty. So tasty that Serious Eats J. Kenji Lopez-Alt decided to reverse engineer the chicken sandwich.
The classic Chick-Fil-A sandwich is a thing of simple beauty. A juicy, salty, crisply fried chicken breast. A soft, sweet, buttered and toasted bun. Two dill pickle chips. That’s all there is to it.
All of that is to say that John Goodman makes a very convincing Colonel Sanders, who would like to remind you that his fried chicken is gay-friendly.
