Chick-sat-A (Fancy Chick-fil-A) by Erik of Fancy Fast Food, with support from Cheryl T.

Ingredients:

  • 1 order of four Chick-n-Strips
  • 1 order of Waffle Potato Fries
  • 1 Carrot & Raisin Salad
  • 1 Walnut Fudge Brownie
  • 1 soft drink of your choice
  • packets of various Chick-fil-A dipping sauces
  • an organic banana leaf (for presentation and a touch of irony)

Here’s a little treat that fuses Southeast Asia with a Southeast American-based fast food chain. First, debread all the Chick-n-Strips to expose the pieces of real chicken breast inside. Rinse the pieces in a colander, and then cut them down into eight smaller pieces.

To get the grill marks, you may fire up an actual hibachi or George Foreman grill, but you can also just fake the grill marks — just like many fast food chains do anyway. Take each morsel of chicken and carve two grooves in each of the sides; these will help define the grill marks when you take a kitchen torch and burn in the dark lines. Afterwards, let the chicken cool down before skewing them with bamboo skewers.

Next, the sauce. Satay is typically served with a peanut sauce, but with the lack of peanuts at Chick-fil-A, we are going to improvise and use walnuts from the Walnut Fudge Brownie. Pick all of them off, and then finely chop them. Blend various dipping sauces into a mixing cup (the darker the better) and then mix in the chopped walnuts. Pour the resulting satay sauce in a small fancy bowl.

Finally, the assembly: cut the banana leaf down to the size and shape of a fancy platter, and then place it down. On top, place the satay sauce and the chicken skewers. Garnish with a Waffle Potato Fry and some Carrot & Raisin Salad, and serve with your beverage in a nice glass. And there you have it! Southeast Asia meets Southeast America in this chicken dish that will sure make you — and the cows — happy.

Quickly Copy File Paths to Your Command Prompt via Drag and Drop [Terminal Tip]

Windows/Mac/Linux: If you spend much time at a command/shell prompt, you're probably very comfortable navigating from one folder to the next—but rather than manually typing through folders to find a file buried in your filesystem, just drag and drop instead.

Next time you want to change directories (cd to a folder deep in your filesystem but you’re looking directly at that folder on your desktop, for example, just type in cd, then drag and drop that folder into your command prompt, and voilà. The simple drag-and-drop trick does the job any time you want the path to a file or folder without a lot of hassle.

This isn’t a new feature by any means. You’ve long been able to drag and drop a file to the terminal in OS X and Linux, and weblog Addictive Tips reminds us (and the How-To Geek explains) that this functionality was also available in XP, broken in Vista, and now back in Windows 7. So even though it’s an oldie, if you spend much time at your operating system’s command prompt and haven’t used this one, it’s extremely handy.
