Recipe: The Best Homemade Fried Chicken Sandwich
You’d agree with me that, cooking or eating the same thing every day gets boring. At least you need to try out a new dish once in a while. It is easier to try out the fried chicken sandwich recipe at home because almost everybody loves chicken.
To get things moving, you need to get all your ingredients ready. To make this sandwich, you’ll need:
3 cups (710 mL) of milk
3 cups (375 g) of fine breadcrumbs
1 cup (125 g) of flour
1 tsp (6 g) of salt
1 tsp (2.3 g) of paprika
4 tsp (9.2 g) of black pepper
2–4 tablespoons (30–59 mL) of any cooking oil of your choice
2-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1-2 tsp (2.7-5.4 g) of red chili powder for a spicy flavor, if desired
1 tsp (2.3 g) of crushed onions
To begin, heat up the oil in a large frying pan. Set the stove to medium heat, and pour in enough oil so that there is about 1 ½ inch at the bottom of the pan. After a few minutes, flick a small amount of cold water at the oil to check the heat. If it hisses, then the pan is hot enough to fry the chicken.
Mix the batter and coating in 2 separate bowls. Put the egg and milk into a medium bowl. Beat the egg until it’s integrated. Then add the breadcrumbs, flour, and spices to a separate bowl and mix them together.
Cook the chicken in the pan. Put a few pieces of chicken in the hot oil at a time depending on the size of your pan, but be careful not to crowd the pan. If you do, you’ll bring the temperature of the oil down significantly, making your chicken soggy and greasy. Turn the chicken once, when it becomes golden brown on the bottom.
Cut the chicken into thin strips and add toppings. Assemble your sandwich by spreading the open sides of the toasted buns with your chicken, toppings, and some lettuce, if you want to. Fried chicken goes great on any number of different kinds of sandwich bread, and with a variety of different condiments and additions.
