Lip Service: Carson Kitchen’s Secret Sunday Chicken

The sandwich is a play on a certain fast-food chain that’s closed on Sundays.

There’s a lot to love at Carson Kitchen, from its swank decor (which now has more space) to the delectable menu (which has marvelous gems such as bacon jam, veal meatballs and rainbow cauliflower). And it’s open seven days a week, unlike some places.

For those who enjoy chicken sandwiches without a side of homophobia, chef John Courtney created the Secret Sunday Chicken—a play on the sandwiches served at Chick-fil-A, which is closed Sundays.

The sandwich is simple in its perfection: a pickle-brined, pasture-raised chicken breast fried in gluten-free batter and topped with a spicy aioli, lettuce, tomato and potato bun. And though it’s called the Secret Sunday Chicken, you can get it any day.

See how it’s made and hear from chef Courtney in the video above.
