After the whole Chik-Fil-A gay hating controversy and nonsense there was an outpouring of hilarity and Chik-fil-A knockoff recipes and parodies but the most amusing one was this recipe rap that Patrick found. Since he is obsessed with tunes and music these days this was able to catch his attention the most and he made the recipe from the song. Then he asked me to get a bag of the Gardein Chick’n Scallopini so he could make me one too!
And about two weeks later I did. Maybe it was one week? Time is really getting away these days.
Then another week later he made me one.
Is it better than a real Chik-Fil-A sandwich? As someone who has never eaten one, I can’t tell you. But it
is was DELICIOUS. And probably even better thanks to the addition of cheese, mayo and mustard.
Now he needs encouragement to measure out the ingredients and give up the far less controversial recipe and technique he used, which isn’t the same as in the song since this is faux meat, and do a guest post! Can I get a rousing chorus of “Give it up! Give it up!” going in the comments?
If you care, where I stand on the whole Chik-Fil-A situation is this: Gay people aren’t just gay people, they are just people. People who happen to want to be with others of the same sex, and that’s fine. Dan Cathy, the owner of Chik-Fil-A did have the right to say what he said out loud because he is in America and was exercising his First Amendment rights. What people, including myself, should be mad about is the hate he has in him for people who aren’t affecting him in the least. Patronizing his restaurant or refusing to is the legal and the correct course of action for the population to tell him “We love you” or “We think you suck too.”
