We’ve been obsessed with this dish for as long as we can remember and have finally perfected our family recipe. Crispy, crunchy, fried chicken that holds sauce perfectly for the ultimate buffalo chicken sandwich experience.
- 2 chicken breasts or cutlets, cut in half to make 4 pieces (cut to fit on bun)
- Brioche or Kaiser buns, split and buttered on cut side
- Blonde Beard’s Buffalo Sauce
- Peanut, corn or canola oil
- 4 cups of buttermilk (or 4 Tbsp vinegar or lemon juice with 4 cups milk)
- 1Tbl Blonde Beard’s Buffalo Sauce
- 1 cup of flour
- ½ cup of Arrowroot or Cornstarch
- 1 tsp cayenne
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp black pepper
- ½ tsp onion powder
Blonde Beard’s Buttermilk Dressing
- 1 cup of mayo
- ½ cup of buttermilk (or 1 ½ tsp vinegar/lemon juice with 1 c. milk)
- 1 clove of garlic minced
- 1 ½ tsp red wine vinegar
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 2 tsp dill (dried)
- 1 ½ tsp parsley (dried)
- ¼ tsp sea salt
A pinch black pepper
In a large bowl, combine your buttermilk with Blonde Beard’s Buffalo Sauce.
Cover all 4 pieces of chicken with the batter, seal the container and leave to marinate in your fridge for up to 24 hours.
Mix Flour Mixture
Combine all ingredients of your flour mixture in a separate bowl. Add a couple tablespoons of the marinade to your flour and stir to combine. It will be clumpy, and that’s A-ok. That comes into play later.
One at a time, add your chicken into your batter, coating very well and evenly. Drive the flour into all the pieces of the chicken to get a really thick crust, the messier looking the better.
Slowly place each piece of chicken in oil 3-5 min/side. Ready when internal temperature is 165 and batter is crispy golden brown. Remove and dry on a paper towel for ultimate crunch.
Heat a skillet over medium/low and toast your buns baby.
While chicken is frying, blend together Blonde Beard’s Buttermilk Dressing. Fresher is better.
Toss fried chicken pieces into Blonde Beard’s Buffalo Sauce. Really coat them well.
Place a heaping, healthy shmear of Blonde Beard’s Buttermilk Dressing on both sides of your bun, place crispy, golden chicken between said buns, place some dill pickles on top of your chicken and enjoy the carnivorous fruits of your labor, friends.
