I'm finally excited to stay that I'll be showing your all of my skills in the kitchen! Not only do I travel, but I can get down in the kitchen when I'm not out exploring. My love for cooking comes from my grandmother, mom and aunt in Texas. They taught me well. :)
Here's my version of the Spicy Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich recipe inspired by Son Of A Gun in Los Angeles. This sammich will make your entire mouth water after taking the first bite, go ahead and try it for lunch or dinner today!
Spicy Mayo & Slaw - Serves 4
1 garlic clove, finely greated
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
1 Tbsp Texas Pete Hot Sauce
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 jalapeno, thinly sliced
4 cups thinly-sliced cabbage
1/2 cup bread-and-butter pickle slices, plus 1/4 cup pickle juice
Fried Chicken & Assembly
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp ground black pepper
1 tsp Sweet Paprika
1/2 tsp kosher salt plush more
1 cup buttermilk
2 8-oz skinless, organic free range chicken breasts, halved
Peanut or vegetable oil (for frying - you'll only need 1/2 inch in your skillet.)
4 white French Buns
2 Tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
Spicy Mayo And Slaw: Mix garlic, mayonnaise, and hot pepper sauce in a small bowl; cover and chill. Toss onion, jalapeno, cabbage, pickles, and pickle juice in a large bowl; cover and chill.
Fried Chicken and Assembly: Whisk flour, pepper, and 1/2 tsp salt in a shallow bowl. Pour buttermilk into another shallow bowl. Working with 1 piece at a time, dredge chicken in flour mixture shaking off excess. Dip in buttermilk, allowing excess to drip back into bowl. Dredge again in flour mixture, shaking off excess.
Pour oil into a large heavy skillet to a depth of 1/2'. Heat over medium heat at 350 degrees F. Fry chicken through, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a wire rack set inside a baking sheet; season with salt.
Spread cut sides of rolls with butter. Heat another large skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, cook rolls buttered side down until browned and crisp, about 1 minute. Spread with spicy mayo. Build sandwiches with rolls, chicken, and cabbage slaw.
