  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 4 sandwich buns
  • Pickles, for serving
  • Lettuce or coleslaw, for serving
  1. Prepare the Chicken:
    • Place chicken breasts between plastic wrap and pound gently to even thickness (about 1/2 inch).
    • In a bowl, pour buttermilk over the chicken breasts. Let them marinate for at least 30 minutes (or up to 2 hours) in the refrigerator.
  2. Coat the Chicken:
    • In a shallow dish, mix flour, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder.
    • Remove chicken breasts from buttermilk, allowing excess to drip off.
    • Dredge each chicken breast in the seasoned flour mixture, pressing to coat evenly.
  3. Fry the Chicken:
    • In a large skillet or deep fryer, heat about 1 inch of vegetable oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 350°F (175°C).
    • Carefully place chicken breasts in the hot oil, cooking 4-5 minutes per side until golden brown and cooked through (internal temperature of 165°F or 74°C).
    • Transfer fried chicken to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  4. Assemble the Sandwiches:
    • Toast sandwich buns lightly, if desired.
    • Spread a generous amount of mayonnaise or your favorite sauce on the bottom bun.
    • Place fried chicken breast on the bun.
    • Top with pickles and lettuce or coleslaw for extra crunch and flavor.
    • Add the top bun and press gently to combine all the flavors.
  5. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Serve your crispy fried chicken sandwiches immediately, and enjoy the crunchy, juicy goodness! 🍔🍗
