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.
