Spicy Fried Chicken Sandwich

“Cooking is at once one of the simplest and most gratifying of the arts, but to cook well, one must love and respect food.” – Craig Claiborne

The boys and I had a good time putting this recipe together, and according to them it is a winner! They compared it to Chick-fil-A’s sandwich… I’m not a big fan of their food, but my boys and many other people are. 

Check me and my boys having a blast cooking this dish together! Let me know what you think about it!

Our Favorite Recipes

Ingredients: Yields 6 to 8 sandwiches depending on how large your breasts are.

2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into thin sections.

2 to 4 cups canola oil for frying

8 hamburger buns




Spicy Mayo:

½ cup olive oil mayonnaise

1 to 2 TBSP your favorite hot sauce~ adjust to how spicy you want it. I used

In a bowl, blend together and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Cut your chicken & marinade for at least 4 hours, overnight is best!

Heat 2 cups of the oil in a deep skillet on medium high heat.


1 cup white whole milk

2 TBSP melted butter

2 TBSP your favorite hot sauce~ I use Franks Red Hot Original

1 tsp each: fresh ground pepper, onion powder, parsley flakes

½ tsp cayenne pepper

¼ tsp red pepper flakes

Blend all together in a one gallon zipper storage bag and place cut chicken in the bag; blend well. Place in a bowl and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight.

Flour Dredging Mixture:

1 cup white all purpose flour

2 TBSP paprika

1 tsp each pink Himalayan salt & fresh ground pepper

½ tsp cayenne pepper

Combine all ingredients into a shallow bowl or a plate.

While oil is heating, begin dredging the chicken pieces into the flour mixture coating both sides; dip chicken into the reserved marinade and dredge in flour mixture again; set aside until oil is hot enough to begin frying.

Check oil by carefully dropping a few drops of the marinade into the oil; if it begins to bubble hard, the oil is hot enough.

Add one piece of chicken to oil at a time being sure not to overlap; fry for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side; the thicken the chicken the longer you will need to fry it. Be sure not to burn the outside. If you have an air fryer you can place the fried pieces in for about an additional 3 to 5 minutes.

To test if chicken is done, remove from oil onto a paper towel lined plate; with a fork and knife carefully cut into the thickest part of the chicken breast; be sure there are no pink raw sections. If so, you can either air fry or bake for a few additional minutes in a 350 degree oven.
