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.

How to Make Awesome Chicken Sandwich with a Kick

Step-by-Step

  • 1THE SAUCE
  • 2Gather your ingredients.
  • 3Add all the ingredients into a non-reactive bowl except the salt & pepper.
  • 4Mix together.
  • 5Season with salt & pepper, and reserve.
  • 6THE CHICKEN
  • 7Gather your ingredients.
  • 8Slice the chicken breast in half.
  • 9Then slice through horizontally.
  • 10Chef’s Note, you should have 4 pieces of chicken breast.
  • 11Season each piece with salt and pepper, on both sides.
  • 12Add the flour and paprika to a small dish.
  • 13Beat the egg and then add to another dish, along with the cilantro.
  • 14Add the Panko and the cayenne to a third dish.
  • 15Coat one of the chicken breasts with flour.
  • 16Dredge in the egg mixture, and then shake off the excess.
  • 17Place into the panko breadcrumbs, and press the crumbs into the chicken breast.
  • 18Transfer the chicken breast to a rack.
  • 19Chef’s Note: Repeat for the other 3 chicken breasts.
  • 20Allow them to rest for about 20 minutes.
  • 21Add about 1/4 inch of oil to a skillet, large enough to hold the 4 chicken breasts, and heat to medium high.
  • 22Chef’s Tip: At medium high the grapeseed oil will have a shimmer to it; however, it will not be smoking.
  • 23Add the chicken to the oil, and cook for about 2 minutes.
  • 24Turn over and cook an additional 2 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • 25Place on a paper towel, and allow them to drain.
  • 26Slice the baguette in half.
  • 27Add the sauce to the bottom.
  • 28Then add the sliced avocado.
  • 29Add the chicken.
  • 30If you’re using the pickled veggies, and I hope you are, add them over the chicken. Here’s the recipe:
