Who doesn’t love a juicy, crispy, flavorful chicken sandwich? Why are these masterful creations only found with a price tag of $10.99 USD or more?
I tackled this recipe the other day and I will never look at a processed chicken patty again. Not only was this the easiest to make, it had the absolute greatest flavors ever. Below is the recipe I used, however you can adjust to your tastes.
6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, or breasts. If using chicken breasts, cut in have the short way and pound out to about 1/4″ thick.
Vegetable Oil for Frying
1 Quart of Buttermilk (be sure to shake the container before using it)
1/2 tsp of kosher salt
1/4 tsp fresh black pepper
1/2 tsp of paprika
1/4 tsp of chili powder
1/4 tsp of garlic powder
1/4 tsp of onion powder
1 cup of Mayonaise
2-3 Tbsp Buttermilk
1/2 tsp Dill
1/4 cup green onion
2 tsp of parsley
1/2 tsp basil
1 tsp of dried onion
Salt and pepper to taste
2 cup All Purpose flour
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
Marinate the Chicken in the seasoned buttermilk for 4-6 hours.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Put a baking rack on a baking sheet to keep chicken warm after frying it.
Pour vegetable oil into a heavy bottom pot and heat up on medium high to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Prepare the breading mixture and take the chicken out of the marinade and coat in flour. After it is coated put it back into the marinade and then into the flour again. Double coat the chicken, this is an important step.
Fry the chicken, in batches, for 3-5 minutes per side. Turning once during cooking. After chicken has been fried on both sides, put on baking rack into the oven to keep warm while the rest of the chicken is cooking.
While the chicken is cooking, combine the ingredients together for the sauce. Mix well and set aside.
To assemble the sandwiches, put a tablespoon onto the top and bottom of a roll, brioche or similar. On the bottom place a piece of butter lettuce, or what you prefer, followed by 3-4 slices of good dill pickles. Place chicken on top followed by the top of the roll.
This sandwich is ready to be eaten and will now ruin you for the other chicken sandwiches out there. Please let me know what you think of this recipe in the comments and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
