In the event you have been craving fried chicken sandwiches we have you covered with this yummy crispy Fried chicken Sandwich. It is super crispy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside and packed with spices. It is as close as you’ll get to the renowned Popeyes chicken sandwich that’s presently sold out anywhere but in my opinion, it is so far better and surprisingly easy to make in your home!

The sandwich comes together in under thirty minutes and may be ready overnight. The chicken is marinated in buttermilk (DIY buttermilk under ) and spices subsequently battered in a combination of corn, wheat starch, and MORE spices. The spices give the sandwich so much taste but more importantly, they give it a crispy crust that’s out of the world.

2 In a medium shallow bowl, whisk the flour, cornstarch, and spices. Drizzle 2-3 tablespoons of the buttermilk batter into the flour mixture and mix it through with a fork.
3 Working with 1 piece at a time, dredge chicken the flour mixture and press flour on the top chicken to form a thick crust. Transfer chicken to hot oil and fry for 3-5 minutes per side or until the outside is crispy and golden and the internal temperature reaches 165F.

Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large saucepan and toast buns face down until golden and crisp. Whisk all the ingredients for the mayo in a small bowl and spread a generous layer of mayo on each bun. Top with pickles and chicken. Enjoy hot!
