Every kid (and anyone who’s a kid at heart) loves fried chicken, and these sandwiches will send your taste buds soaring. Marinating in buttermilk overnight is a bit like brining. It tenderizes the chicken and brings out the flavour. You could add bacon and lettuce for a BLC sandwich.
2 cups buttermilk
1 tsp chili powder
8 boneless skinless chicken thighs, halved
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Vegetable oil for frying
8 hamburger buns
1/3 cup ketchup
3 tbsp mayo
4 tsp Franks hot sauce
Combine buttermilk and chili powder in a large bowl. Immerse chicken and marinate overnight in refrigerator.
Remove chicken from marinade. Season flour with salt and pepper in a large bowl. Toss chicken in flour to coat.
Heat oil in a skillet to 1-inch depth over high heat. Add chicken pieces and cook about 4 minutes a side or until chicken is golden and cooked through.
Stir ketchup with mayo and hot sauce in a small bowl.
Serve chicken on hamburger buns and top with Zesty Ketchup and pickle slices.
