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

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. Just before frying chicken, dip it into the seasoned flour again for a thick and shaggy exterior.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.

Also, if you don’t have a thermometer to monitor the oil, I highly recommend one for frying. It can make all the difference in frying.

    This was da bomb! After 30+ years of cooking for my fam sometimes you just need fresh ideas. I splurged for the thermometer so the oil would be the right temp. Followed directions precisely and they were perfect. Every member of my picky family loved and we had some leftover chick fil a sauce to top them with. *Note: I have electric oven so even with the temp I struggled to keep the oil between 340-350 while cooking the chicken BUT at least I was aware & had a bench mark. I can now totally see how using the wrong temp could make a huge difference in how they turned out. Thanks Natasha!

      Hi Sonya, it may have to do with the temperature of the oil – it might be too hot, or it could be due to overcooking. Also, make sure to let them dry on a rack or a plate and not on a paper towel which can cause the bottom to steam, soften, and sometimes separate from the chicken.

      Hi, yes that would work to use this breading for making fried chicken, but be sure to adjust cooking time and check for doneness with thicker pieces of chicken.

    Recipe for Crispy Chicken Sandwich calls for 1 tsp baking powder. Your video says 2 tsp baking powder? Please confirm the proper amount. They look delicious for dinner tonight.

      Hi, already commented but seems to have disappeared?
      I made these yesterday and were a hit with all the family, kids said you have to make these again.
      My question is could they be cooked in an air fryer to make them a little bit healthier.
      Thanks Natasha.

    I might eat fried foods 3 or 4 times per year. I was craving fried chicken, saw your recipe and tried it. I’m so glad I did…and my husband LOVED it! I soaked the chicken overnight in buttermilk. It was so tender when fried! The seasoning was perfect. Your recipes and videos are amazing!! Thank you!

    Hey there,when you put your chicken in oil ,you have 2,3 minutes per side than flip ?Is that long enough for the chicken to cook through?

      Hi Jan, yes, the chicken is thin enough, and it cooks through. Make sure your oil and pan are preheated. But as always, with chicken, use a thermometer to check for doneness.

      Hi Nada, it may have to do with the temperature of the oil – it might be too hot, or it could be due to overcooking. Also, make sure to let them dry on a rack or a plate and not on a paper towel which can cause the bottom to steam, soften, and sometimes separate from the chicken.
