The Ultimate Pan-Fried Chicken or Pork Sandwich

Andy Anderson !


Believe it or not, I came up with the idea for this sandwich while watching an insurance commercial. This dude was eating this great-looking sandwich, and I paused it, and back played it several time, until I figured out what I wanted to do.

Is it the same sandwich… probably not. But it looks pretty much the same.

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