Crispy Fried Chicken Sandwich

Updated: Apr 3, 2023

Juicy crispy chicken sandwiches are the best. I know everyone says the thigh is the moist part of the chicken but, I love a chicken breast as long as it not dry. The secret to locking in the flavor is to marinate overnight to allow time for the flavors to infuse in the meat. You can also add flavor with a quick simple brine in salty water prior to cooking. It helps tenderize the meat and gives it that extra pop of flavor.

Using buttermilk also helps to tenderize the chicken because of the acidity in the buttermilk. Buttermilk also helps the chicken break down the tissue so the chicken is not tough and chewy. It can also help with creating the flaky crust when you dredge it through the dry mix.

Ingredients Crispy Chicken Sandwich

Flour- forms the breading on the chicken filled with flavor from the seasoning

Buttermilk- the acidity from the buttermilk assist in tenderizing the chicken

Boneless Chicken Breast- tender boneless breast is my choice thighs can be used as well

Seasonings- Garlic powder, onion powder, kosher salt, paprika, and black pepper added to the chicken and the flour to give the breast a burst of umami flavor.

Step 5 Heat oil in a cast iron pan 400° F Add the chicken to the hot oil do not over crowd the pan. Pre-heat the oven to 350°

Step 6- Brown the chicken on both sides about 6-8 minutes each side
