Awesome Chicken Sandwich with a Kick

I love a good chicken sandwich, and this one is as good as it gets. We’re going to kick up the breading with a bit of cayenne, and fry the chicken until golden brown. Then we’re going to add a kickin’ sauce, and (if you’re adventurous), we’ll add some pickled veggies to the top… YUMMY.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

6
THE CHICKEN
7
Gather your ingredients.
8
Slice the chicken breast in half.
9
Then slice through horizontally.
10
Chef’s Note, you should have 4 pieces of chicken breast.
11
Season each piece with salt and pepper, on both sides.
12
Add the flour and paprika to a small dish.
13
Beat the egg and then add to another dish, along with the cilantro.
14
Add the Panko and the cayenne to a third dish.
15
Coat one of the chicken breasts with flour.
16
Dredge in the egg mixture, and then shake off the excess.
17
Place into the panko breadcrumbs, and press the crumbs into the chicken breast.
18
Transfer the chicken breast to a rack.
19
Chef’s Note: Repeat for the other 3 chicken breasts.
20
Allow them to rest for about 20 minutes.
21
Add about 1/4 inch of oil to a skillet, large enough to hold the 4 chicken breasts, and heat to medium high.
22
Chef’s Tip: At medium high the grapeseed oil will have a shimmer to it; however, it will not be smoking.
23
Add the chicken to the oil, and cook for about 2 minutes.

Turn over and cook an additional 2 minutes, or until golden brown.
25
Place on a paper towel, and allow them to drain.

If you’re using the pickled veggies, and I hope you are, add them over the chicken. Here’s the recipe:
