Big Swagu Chicken Sandwich

Recipes / Big Swagu Chicken Sandwich



Under the watchful eye of our Chief Fry Officer, Marcus Spears, we’ve dipped into our decades of frying expertise to create the perfect Big Swagu chicken sandwich. With our At Home Chicken Sandwich Seasoned Coating Mix (and all of our At Home Chicken products), you can create this flavor sensation in the comfort of your own home, too!


  • 1 box Louisiana Fish Fry Chicken Sandwich Seasoned Coating Mix
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • ¼ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 chicken thigh (or two, if you’re really hungry)
  • neutral oil, for frying
  • hot honey
  • 1 potato bun


    1. First, make fry sauce. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise and ketchup, and let chill while completing the next steps.

    2. In a non-stick skillet over medium heat, sprinkle the cheddar cheese and let it melt. When it starts to bubble, crack an egg in the center of the cheese pile, then cover with a lid to finish cooking.

    3. Fill a skillet halfway with oil, and place over medium-high heat until it reaches 375ºF.

    4. Mix together the Louisiana Fish Fry Chicken Sandwich Seasoned Coating Mix and water. Whisk the remaining egg and dunk the chicken thigh in to coat. Dredge the egg-washed thigh in the Coating Mix, pressing to cover fully.

    5. Fry the chicken thigh until the breading turns golden brown and an internal temperature of 165ºF is reached, about 4 minutes on each side.

    6. To assemble your Big Swagu Chicken Sandwich, spread a dollop of fry sauce on the bottom potato bun. Add the fried chicken thigh (or two), and drizzle with hot honey. Place the crispy cheddar egg on top, and finish with another spoonful of fry sauce and the top bun. Enjoy!

    The Swagu Special

    The Swagu Special is the original recipe created by Marcus Spears, Louisiana Fish Fry’s Chief Fry Officer. Combining the original, iconic Seasoned Fish Fry with the spicy Cajun Fish Fry makes for a flavor sure to score points with family and friends!

    “My go-to Louisiana Fish Fry Products recipe is a fish fry using the Seasoned and Cajun Fish Fry mixes together. They’re great on their own, but when you mix ’em together, that’s where it’s at! When I tell you Louisiana Fish Fry Products’ breadings, sauces and seafood boils are good for the soul, I mean it! They bring the flavor and the spice to the kitchen table.”
