About this Recipe

This Crispy Chicken Sandwich hits all the right notes. It’s crunchy, juicy, savory, and balanced with fresh toppings. To make it, you’ll marinate chicken breasts in buttermilk before dredging them in seasoned flour and cooking until crispy. When done, enjoy the chicken in a sandwich with your favorite fixings—Chef Andrew recommends a little mayo, pickles, lettuce, and coleslaw.
