Southern Style Buttermilk Chicken Sandwiches – too good to tell anybody about ;)



To marinate the chicken:
2 chicken breasts
1 cup (240ml) buttermilk
1 tsp. paprika powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
some tabasco sauce (to your liking)

For the breading:
1 cup (130g) all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (60g) cornstarch
1 tbsp. paprika powder
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. onion powder
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

For the sauce:
3.5 oz. (100g) mayonnaise
1 tbsp. Sriracha sauce
1 tsp. paprika powder
1 tsp. garlic powder

To finish the sandwiches:
oil for frying
some butter
4 brioche buns
4 salad leaves


1. Pound chicken breasts in between two pieces of parchment paper or plastic wrap. Cut each chicken breast in half to make two smaller pieces. Add the buttermilk, paprika powder, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, salt, and tabasco sauce to a freezer bag, add the chicken and let marinate overnight (up to 24h) in the fridge.

2. To fry the chicken add the oil to a pot and heat up – you want the temperature to be around 350°F (175°C). Mix the flour with cornstarch, paprika powder, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and regular pepper to a shallow bowl and mix to combine. Add the chicken pieces one after another into the flour mixture and turn around – make sure flour sticks well everywhere. Fry the chicken in the hot oil for about 4-6 minutes until crispy and golden brown from all sides.

3. Mix the mayonnaise with chili sauce, paprika powder, and garlic powder and set aside. Heat up some butter in a large pan and toast the brioche buns cut side down until golden and crisp. Spread some spicy mayo on the buns, add salad leaves, the chicken, maybe some more mayo on top, and serve with some chips and pickles.


Enjoy frying!
