Spicy Fried Chicken Sandwich

Spicy Fried Chicken Sandwich but with a few twists.  Crispy fried chicken sandwiched between two toasted slices of sourdough bread with pepper jack cheese, jalapeños, coleslaw and a pepper relish aioli.

Ingredients:  – fresh sourdough bread – thin sliced chicken breasts – flour – garlic powder – salt and black pepper – eggs – bread crumbs – pepper relish – mayonnaise – lemon juice – jalapeños – pepper jack cheese – coleslaw – canola oil or peanut oil

The Steps

Step 1: Slice the jalapeños. On medium high heat, in either a cast iron skillet or deep fryer heat up the peanut oil until the oil temperature is about 375 degrees.  In a small bowl, mix together flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper.  Whisk the eggs.  Coat the thinly sliced chicken breast in the flour mixture.  Transfer it to the eggs and coat in egg.  Immediately transfer to the bowl of bread crumbs and coat.

Step 2: Place the breaded chicken breasts in the hot oil.  Fry for out about 5-7 minutes, flipping halfway through.  The friend chicken should be golden brown when done.  Place chicken on a wire rack or a plate covered with a paper towels to drain excess oil.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place pepper jack cheese on top of chicken and bake on a baking sheet until cheese melts.

Step 3: Combine mayonnaise, pepper relish and lemon juice in a small bowl. Toast the sourdough bread in the toaster or on the stove on medium heat.

Step 4: Coat the bottom slice of sourdough with coleslaw. Place the chicken on top. Spread the jalapeños on top of the chicken evenly. Coat the top slice of sourdough with the pepper relish aioli. Close the sandwich. Serve immediately.

Hint: to avoid the mess with deep frying, fry outside on an outdoor griddle. This works the same as frying on the stove but avoids the mess inside.
