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.

How to Make The Ultimate Pan-Fried Chicken or Pork Sandwich

  3. Cook the bacon in a sauté pan over medium heat until crispy.
  4. Remove the bacon and reserve.
  5. Add the flour, salt, pepper, cumin, cayenne, and paprika to a small bowl.
  6. Add the chicken or pork to the mixture, and thoroughly coat.
  7. Place the chicken or pork in the pan with the bacon grease, and cook over medium heat until browned and toasty, about 5 minutes per side.
  8. Chef's Note: Remove from the pan, and slice into thick pieces.
  9. Brush the melted butter on both sides of the bread and toast in the same pan that you used to cook the bacon, and the chicken.
  11. Spread a generous amount of your favorite sauce to one side of each piece of the toasted bread.
  12. Chef's Note: This is the sauce I use: Andy’s Not So Secret… Secret Sauce
