A homemade chicken sandwich tastes fresher because you aren’t re-using the same oil all day long. They are more satisfying than Popeyes Chicken Sandwich or even the famous Chik fil A.

Just like homemade Burgers, these chicken sandwiches are a fun and inexpensive way to feed a crowd. This recipe makes 6 chicken sandwiches and the chicken patties reheat well so they are great for meal planning.

How to Make Fried Chicken Breast:

A great fried chicken starts with a well-seasoned marinade. The combination of buttermilk and hot sauce tenderizes the chicken and the generous amount of seasoning adds flavor.

Ingredients for Fried chicken marinade

1. Pound chicken cutlets between plastic wrap to an even 1/2” thickness for even frying.

2. Marinate chicken – In a large mixing bowl, combine marinade ingredients, add chicken and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate 2-4 hours or overnight.

3. Dredge Chicken – In a separate shallow bowl, whisk together: flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder. Lift a piece of marinated chicken, letting excess marinade drip off, and dip chicken into the flour mixture, pressing it on with your hands to coat well. Transfer to a wire rack. Keep the flour mixture for step 5.

4. Heat 1-inch of oil in a soup pot or dutch oven to 350˚F. See our favorite oils for frying below.

5. Re-dip the chicken into the flour mixture just before frying. Add chicken 2 pieces at a time so you don’t crowd.

7. Fry the Chicken – Adjust the temperature of the oil to keep it at 300-325˚F while frying. Cook 3-4 minutes on the first side, then flip and cook 2-3 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 160-165˚F. Transfer to a wire rack.

Pro Tips for Crisp and Juicy Fried Chicken:

  • Give it time to marinate: buttermilk helps to tenderize the chicken so marinate at least 2 hours or overnight.
  • Seasoning the flour well: Don’t skimp on the seasoning. Press the flour mixture onto the chicken to adhere well.
  • Double dip – just before frying chicken, dip it into the seasoned flour again for a thick and shaggy exterior.
  • The right oil temperature: heat to 350˚F before adding chicken then adjust the temperature to keep it at 300-325˚F while frying. Don’t overcrowd the pot or the oil temperature will drop quickly. A clip-on pot thermometer is really useful.
  • When to remove the chicken: take the chicken out of the hot oil once it’s cooked through and browned. The internal temperature will continue to rise as the chicken rests and should reach 165˚F so take the chicken out just before that. Insert an instant-read thermometer in the side of your chicken to check.
  • DO NOT drain on paper towels: drain or rest fried chicken on a wire rack set over a baking sheet to allow air to circulate. Draining on paper towels will trap steam and the crust will soften.

Classic Toppings for a Chicken Sandwich:

These are the classic toppings for a fried chicken sandwich. If you want to cut down on prep, you can also skip all of the toppings and use a crunchy Coleslaw which incorporates the sauce and veggies into one tasty sandwich topping.

  • Buns – We love brioche buns because they are beautiful and add a hint of sweetness.
  • Dill Pickles – slice into rings to put inside the sandwich or serve pickle spears on the side.
  • Lettuce – green curly lettuce looks the best but any sandwich lettuce will work
  • Tomatoes and onions – thickly slice juicy tomatoes and thinly slice onions into rings.
  • Cheese – we don’t always use sliced cheese but when we do, we love a medium cheddar or Colby Jack Cheese.
  • Sauce – we love a simple mayonnaise or fry sauce (the same one we used for our burger recipe).

Can I use Chicken Thighs?

Yes, but keep in mind dark meat will take longer to cook. Be sure chicken thighs are well trimmed of fat and cook to an internal temperature of 170˚-175˚F (6 to 8 minutes per side).

What is the Best Oil for Fried Chicken?

Use a neutral oil with a high smoke point. The great news is that the best oils for frying are also the least expensive oils. You can always opt for an extra light olive oil or avocado oil but those are significantly more expensive. Our go-to oils for frying are:

  1. Vegetable Oil
  2. Canola Oil
  3. Peanut Oil
  4. Corn Oil

Calories: 485 kcal
Servings: 6 people

Ingredients

Chicken Marinade:

  • 3 medium chicken breasts boneless, skinless, halved into 6 cutlets
  • 1 1/2 cups low-fat buttermilk
  • 1 Tbsp hot sauce (we use Frank’s Red Hot brand)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Classic Breading for Fried Chicken:

Toppings for Chicken Sandwiches:

  • 6 burger buns buttered and toasted
  • 6 green lettuce leaves
  • 1 large tomato sliced
  • 2 dill pickles sliced into rings
  • Mayonnaise or your favorite sauce

Instructions

  1. Pound chicken cutlets between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and pound to an even 1/2” thickness so they cook more evenly.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together marinade ingredients. Add Chicken, turning to coat then cover and refrigerate for 2-4 hours or overnight.
  3. In a separate shallow bowl, whisk together breading ingredients: flour, salt, pepper, baking powder, paprika, onion powder and garlic powder. Remove a piece of chicken from the marinade, letting excess drip off and dip chicken into flour mixture, pressing it on with your hands to coat well. Transfer to a wire rack.
  4. Heat 1 ” oil in a soup pot or dutch oven to 350˚F. Add chicken, 2 pieces at a time for a smaller pot so you don’t crowd and reduce the temperature of the oil too quickly.
  5. Place chicken into the oil one by one. Adjust the flame to keep the oil temperature at 300-325˚F. Cook 3-4 minutes on the first side or until browned and crisp then flip and cook another 2-3 minutes on the second side or until cooked through and chicken is browned and crisp all over.

  6. Transfer to a wire rack set over a baking sheet. The internal temperature will continue to rise as it rests. The final resting temperature of the chicken should reach 165˚F.
  7. Lightly butter and toast the cut sides of your buns and build your crispy chicken sandwiches with desired toppings.

    Delicious light crisp chicken makes this the best chicken sandwich my family had! I marinated over night but I skipped tenderizing since I thought my chicken cutlets were thin enough. I will tenderize next time for thinner Pieces. So much better and lighter than the restaurants! Use the wire rack for oil dripping. Thank you for this amazing recipe!

    This looks great, however there is a ridiculous amount of sodium in this. Where is all that salt coming from? The bread? CHeese? How can the sodium be cut down a bit?

    Reply

    • Natasha
      August 10, 2020

      Hi Shannon, keep in mind much of the salt is added to the breading and some of it gets left behind in the bowl when breading. Also, the nutrition label accounts for the cheese as well and removing the cheese would be a great way to cut down the sodium.

      Plain kefir will also work well instead of buttermilk. You can also make your own buttermilk at a ratio of 1 cup whole milk to 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice. Combine and let it sit 10 minutes to curdle then stir and use.

      Hi Malinda, I have not personally tried it. But this same batter would not work properly in an air fryer. A bread crumb type of batter would work better and you would want to spray it with cooking spray to get some color on it.

    This was OUTSTANDING and thanks for the share Natasha!

    My folks split first sandwich, even stacked it the way you did (Used undress coleslaw for more crunch instead of head lettuce) and they devoured it and loved it.

    One thing, one first sandwich, after cutting in half, some of the breading came off.

    Next 3 pieces, I really pressed on that flour mixture coating, thought I had first time. It held on much better.

    Don’t be afraid folks to really press on that flour coating.

    Oh, and having the chicken in the marinade all those hours, I worried for nothing. It was fine like you said Natasha.

    Delish and I recommend anyone who hasn’t tried this crispy chicken sandwich, TRY IT, YOU’LL LOVE IT!

    I’m going to make this chicken recipe and only have smoked paprika… do you suggest I get plain paprika instead?

      Hi Nancy, I haven’t tried with smoked but it could still work. I have only tried it with original paprika.

    Have you tried this recipe in an air fryer? I’m curious how that would work ou.

      Hi Carisa, I have not personally tried it. But this same batter would not work properly in an air fryer. A bread crumb type of batter would work better and you would want to spray it with cooking spray to get some color on it.

      Hi Alla, butter the cut side of the buns and then toast on the buttered side in a skillet or on a griddle or even on the grill.

    The family really loved this chicken! So much one of the littles has been requesting a repeat menu for dinner basically every night since Sunday. Only issue: I’m out of vegetable oil…and canola oil…and all oil except 2 – EVOO and Coconut. It looks like EVOO may be okay, but having NEVER used it for anything but like stir fry frying, any experience with it as deep frying oil?

      Thank you, Emily! I haven’t really tried using EVO for deep frying but from what I know it’s not ideal for deep frying.

    Your Crispy Chicken recipe was awesome. I can’t believe how good it turned out. I did it exactly like you did except I didn’t use a sledge hammer to tenderize the chicken. LOL I made the mayonnaise and ketchup sauce like you said and it was delicious. My husband loved it. I’ve tried several of your recipes and they are all good. You really do know how to cook. I love your videos. Thank you and your family for all the work you put into the recipes and the videos. I will keep looking for your recipes.

      Hi Kathi, here is a helpful article on storing oil after frying. I personally just get rid of the oil since it is an inexpensive oil. When I use my deep fryer, it filters the oil for me, but on the stovetop, it’s so much hassle to me that I just start fresh.

      Just a bit spicy yes as it’s a brand of hot sauce. It also helps tenderize the chicken but you can lessen it according to your preference.

        when very hot the vinegar evaporates and leaves only the flavor when cooler the vinegar doesn’t evaporate the crust should still be crispy if very hot and just a little vinegar

        Instead of flour use a Panko or similar coating. I use a Infred Big Boss cooker and it comes out crispy. Times very, you have adjust to the size of the cutlets. I do 9 min. first, then turn over and do another 5 min. I check to make sure it’s not pink on the inside of the biggest piece. Turn over again for 3 min. and your done. Only my style as I don’t have an oven.
