In case you’ve been hiding under a rock over the past week, Chick-fil-A and gay rights have been all over the news. The controversy erupted for the Southern based fast food chain earlier this month when the son of Chick-fil-A’s founder admitted supporting “the biblical definition of a family unit.”
As The New York Times reports the Jim Henson Company, which created toys for the chain, will not offer any more Muppets. Lisa Henson, the chief executive officer, stated that she supported same-sex marriage and would donate money that the company had received from Chick-fil-A to the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. Leadership in the cities of Chicago and Boston made moves to ensure that the chain was no longer welcome in their cities.
I had not even heard of Chick-fil-A until about a year ago but I’ve been told it is a delicious sandwich. And you might be saying to yourself – who cares?! I can’t eat it anyway.
Whether you support gay rights or not, and whether you keep kosher or not, now you can make your very own Chick-fil-A style chicken sandwich at home thanks to Hilah Cooking! The Food Network also has a recipe for the famous sandwich, but you’ll have to do some editing to make it kosher – just leave out the malted milk and butter the recipe calls for.
