Happy “Fry-day” everybody ! I love a fried chicken sandwich as much as the next person, bonus points if it’s spicy. Sometimes you can’t go out or get a chicken sandwich delivered so it’s nice to be able to fix one up yourself. I was looking through loose recipes when I came across this recipe and knew I wanted to try this recipe out.
Flavor-wise, I enjoy the smoky flavor the chipotle powder brings to the juicy chicken and I enjoy the crunch of the cabbage and pickled jalapeños but you will have to watch out when you’re cooking this. I could only fit half of the chicken into the skillet at a time and when it came time for the second batch, there was less oil left in the skillet than I realized and sort of burned one side of the chicken. I was able to cut off the burnt parts and still use those pieces but if I’d just added some extra oil for the second batch, the problem probably could’ve been avoided. The one weird thing about this recipe is how many pieces of chicken they want. They want 6 thighs… for 4 sandwiches. You’re supposed to cut each fried thigh into 2 pieces (crosswise) and then divide them equally between the 4 sandwiches. I’m just like, why not just use 4 chicken thighs and leave them whole? It’s a messy sandwich but I enjoyed eating it.
This recipe came from Cook’s Country (you have to have a membership to view it).
I wasn’t paid in any form to promote Cook’s Country.
Take care y’all !
