Crispy Chicken Sandwiches are made of seasoned crispy chicken patties served on a bun with lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, dill pickles, and your favorite sauce. Perfectly seasoned, lightly fried, and accompanied by all your favorite toppings and special sauces. Definitely one of our favorite chicken sandwiches.


    4 boneless chicken breasts, cut in half

    Seasoned Buttermilk
    2 cups almond milk
    2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
    1 tbsp. hot sauce
    1 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. pepper
    1 tsp. onion powder
    1 tsp. garlic powder

    2 cups flour
    2 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. pepper
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1 tsp. onion powder
    1 tsp. garlic powder
    Vegetable Oil

    8 hamburger buns
    1 romaine lettuce head
    1 large tomato, sliced
    1 white onion, sliced
    Dill Pickles
    Favorite sauce


1. Pound the chicken cutlets in between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound until an even 1/2" thickness
2. In a large bowl, combine seasoned buttermilk ingredients. Whisk together and pour into a plastic bag and/or shallow dish. Add chicken. Close the bag or cover then refrigerate 2-4 hours or overnight.
3. In another bowl, combine flour, salt, pepper, baking powder, paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder. Mix until combined.
4. Remove the chicken from marinade, letting excess liquid drip off, and dip chicken into flour mixture. Press down to coat. Optionally, you can double coat the chicken by dipping it back into the buttermilk mixture and then the flour for a second time.
5. Heat 1" oil in dutch oven to 350 degrees. Add chicken, about 2-3 pieces at a time, to avoid crowding the pan.
6. Cook for 3-4 minutes, flip, and cook for another 2-3 minutes on the second side or until cooked through and breading is crispy and golden brown.
7. Transfer to wire rack set on a cookie sheet. The chicken will continue to cook as it rests. The final resting temperature should be 165 degrees.
8. Lightly butter the inside of the bun and toast it. Build your sandwich by layering chicken patty, lettuce, tomato, and dill pickles.
