I have always enjoyed a good chicken sandwich, even more than a burger. This one is very flavorful. The recipe is based upon one found at buzzfeed.

  • Marinade ingredients
  • 1-1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 tsp. Spanish smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh-ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 6-8 chicken thigh fillets (boneless, skinless thigh meat)
  • Dredging ingredients
  • 2 crushed chicken bouillon cubes (or 2 tsp powder)
  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp. Spanish smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh-ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • Other ingredients
  • Oil for frying
  • Buns
  • Sandwich fixin’s of your choice, potentials to include: mayonnaise, ketchup, dill pickle chips, fresh tomato slices, lettuce, coleslaw, sliced onion, etc.

At least an hour ahead, or overnight, mix the marinade in a plastic bag and drop in the chicken. Let sit under refrigeration until ready to begin the cooking process.

In a pie tin mix together the dredging ingredients. Heat oil to 350 degrees in a deep fryer or a skillet. I use a skillet with about 1/2″ oil in it.

Remove each chicken piece from the marinade and dredge through the flour mixture until VERY well coated. Keep running it through and pressing the flour so it sticks to the meat. Gently lower the chicken pieces into the oil. Do not crowd the pan. In my wide skillet, I fry three pieces at a time. Let it fry for about four minutes and then turn the chicken over and fry another 4 minutes.

Remove from oil and lay on paper towels to absorb extra oil. Repeat until all the chicken has been cooked.

Make up the sandwiches. Serves 6-8 people.

Notes: The flavor from the bouillon cannot be overstated. It really makes a difference. I like using my homemade dill pickle chips as a condiment. Yeah! I haven’t tried this in Dad’s air fryer yet. Maybe next time I visit. I buy chicken thigh fillets from Costco and you can’t tell how many are in the package until you open them. This was two packages and it probably had ten fillets total. I didn’t run out of either buttermilk marinade or breading. I know in some places the chicken pieces are huge, so that might be a problem.

Corn on the cob and a chicken sandwich. What a great meal!
