Spiced Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich Delight!
• 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
• 1 cup buttermilk
• 2 tablespoons spicy seasoning of your choice (e.g. blackened, garlic and herb, etc.)
• 1 teaspoon garlic powder
• 1 cup all-purpose flour
• 1 teaspoon black pepper
• 1 teaspoon ground cumin
• 1 teaspoon chili powder
• 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
• 2 tablespoons cooking oil
For Sour Cream Glazed Donuts:
• 2 cups all-purpose flour
• 4 tablespoons granulated sugar
• 1 teaspoon baking powder
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 3/4 teaspoon salt
• 3/4 cup buttermilk
• 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
• 1 egg
• 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
• 1/2 cup sour cream
• 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
• 2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
• 1/4 cup sour cream
• 2 tablespoons warm water
1. To make the fried chicken, prepare the chicken breast by cutting it into two large strips. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the buttermilk, spicy seasoning, and garlic powder before adding the chicken strips. Allow the chicken to marinade for 10-15 minutes.
3. In a separate shallow bowl (or large Ziploc bag), combine the all-purpose flour, black pepper, cumin and chili powder.
4. Heat a heavy-bottomed, oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the butter and cooking oil to the skillet.
5. One at a time, take the chicken strips out of the buttermilk mixture, shake off any excess liquid and dredge in the flour mixture. Shake off any excess flour before adding to the hot skillet.
6. Fry each side of the chicken until golden brown, about 4-5 minutes per side.
7. Once all sides of the chicken are golden brown, carefully transfer the entire skillet to the preheated oven and bake for an additional 13-15 minutes or until cooked through.
8. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
9. In a separate large bowl or stand mixer, combine the buttermilk, melted butter, egg and vanilla. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients.
10. Once the batter comes together, add in the sour cream and mix until fully incorporated.
11. Heat some oil in a large and deep skillet over medium heat.
12. Once the oil is hot, use a 3-tablespoon scoop to drop dollops of batter into the oil.
13. Fry the donut buns on each side until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes per side.
14. Place the cooked donuts on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
15. To make the glaze, whisk together the confectioners’ sugar, melted butter and sour cream until completely combined. Slowly add in the warm water and whisk until smooth.
16. Dip each donut bun in the glaze and place on a baking rack to let the glaze set.
17. Once the fried chicken is finished cooking, build your sandwich using the glazed donut buns and any toppings of your choice. Serve and enjoy!
