Fried Chicken Sandwich With Spicy Mayo and Slaw
1 grated garlic clove
1/2 red onion, sliced
1 jalapeno, sliced
1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce
1/2 cup mayonnaise
4 cups sliced cabbage
1/2 cup pickle slices
2 8-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts, halved
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup all-purpose flour
4 sandwich rolls
2 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temp
1 tablespoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
For the spicy mayo mixture, stir together the hot pepper sauce, garlic and mayonnaise. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving. For the slaw, mix the pickles, onion, jalapeno and cabbage in another small bowl, cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours as well.
As for the fried chicken, whisk together the salt, pepper and flour in shallow bowl. Place the buttermilk in a separate shallow bowl. Place each piece of the chicken, one at a time, into the flour mixture and then into the buttermilk before placing once more into the flour. Put to the side.
Pour vegetable oil into a large skillet, enough for 1/2-inch depth. Place the bulb of deep-fry thermometer into oil and cook until the temperature reaches 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Fry the chicken for 3 minutes on each side until cooked through. Place them on a wire rack and salt. Spread butter onto rolls.
Place second large skillet at medium heat. Cook rolls with the buttered side down until crisp, around 1 minute each. Do this until all rolls are cooked. Spread spicy mayo onto bottom of rolls, followed by the chicken and slaw.
