Ingredients:

  • 4 chicken breasts (around 5 ounces each)
  • 4 brioche buns
  • 12 bread and butter pickles
  • 2 cups plain bread crumbs
  • 5 large eggs
  • 4 ounces whole milk
  • 4 tablespoons cayenne pepper

  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 16 ounces canola oil
  • Oil for frying
  • Salt

Directions:

  1. Trim the excess fat off the sides of the chicken breast. Using a knife, score the chicken long ways, cutting half way through the chicken. This will help the chicken cook more rapidly.
  2. To bread the chicken, in a medium sized mixing bowl, crack the eggs and whisk with the milk.
  3. In a separate medium sized mixing bowl, add the breadcrumbs.
  4. Dip each chicken breast in the egg mixture and dredge completely and shake off the excess.
  5. Transfer to the breadcrumbs and dredge completely, shaking off the excess.
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5, then transfer to a parchment lined pan.
  7. To make the spicy pepper oil, in a medium mixing bowl, combine all the spices. Add the oil and whisk vigorously until all the spices have dissolved into the oil.
  8. To fry the chicken, heat your deep fryer or a Dutch oven with a thermometer to 340 degrees.
  9. Set the chicken breast in and fry for 2-3 minutes until golden brown.
  10. When finished, season with 1/2 tsp. of salt.
  11. Transfer chicken to the brioche buns.
  12. Whisk together the spicy oil, as it separates over time, then drizzle 1 ounce on each chicken breast.
  13. Add 3 bread and butter pickles on top of the chicken and finish by placing on the top bun.
