Recipe

Skip the drive-thru and fry up delicious, crunchy, golden fried chicken sandwiches at home. And, it’s fail-proof! No deep fryers needed: follow along the video below for step-by-step pan frying instructions.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 1 package At Home Original Chicken Sandwich Seasoned Coating Mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1 package of boneless half chicken breasts or thighs (6-8 pieces)
  • Vegetable oil, for pan frying
  • 6-8 potato rolls or buns, split and lightly toasted
  • Mayonnaise, to taste
  • Pickle coins
  • Lettuce (leaves and shred)
  • Cheese slices

    PREPARATION

    Prepare

    • In a bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of water and the entire package of dry mix to create a crumbly texture.
    • In another bowl, beat 1 egg.
    • Pound chicken pieces (boneless half breasts OR thighs) to cook evenly and pat dry.

    Heat

    • Fill skillet halfway with oil and place over medium-high heat to reach 375° F. Oil is ready to use when a pinch of breading dropped in the oil sizzles without burning.

    Fry

    • Dip chicken pieces in egg wash and then the dry crumble mix, pressing to coat fully.
    • Add chicken to hot oil and cook each side for 3-4 minutes, until golden brown.
    • Remove from pan when juices run clear and internal temperature reaches 165° F.

    Assemble

    • Smear mayonnaise on top and bottom buns (add a drizzle of hot sauce, if using).
    • Place pickle coins on the bottom bun, then place one fried chicken thigh on top.
    • Top chicken with cheese and lettuce, then place top bun on sandwich.
    • Enjoy!

    PRO TIPS

    Crispy Fried Chicken

    To create craggy pockets of fried-ness, dribble a few tablespoons of buttermilk over your batter and rub it together to create small clumps.

    Fully Flavored Chicken

    For deeply flavored chicken, use a salt-and-buttermilk brine (preferred ratios vary). Soak for at least 8 hours and up to 24; rinse off the brine at the end. For a quicker brine, use 2 quarts of water with ½ cup each of salt and sugar – but don’t let it sit more than an hour or it will get very salty!
