Almost Famous Chicken Sandwiches

This is a recipe and photo from Food Network.  Tasty, but the original is still the best.


  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 6 ounces each)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Peanut oil, for frying
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup nonfat milk
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon malted milk powder
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
  • hamburger dills-2 slices for each sandwich
  • 4 soft hamburger buns, split
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened


Cut the chicken breasts in half horizontally to make 4 thin cutlets. Place the cutlets mallet or heavy skillet. Season the chicken with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon between 2 pieces of heavy-duty plastic wrap and pound to 1/8-inch thick with a each pepper and paprika.
Heat about 2 inches peanut oil in a heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 325 degrees F. Meanwhile, whisk the egg, milk and 2 tablespoons water in a baking dish. Whisk both flours, the malted milk powder, confectioners sugar,baking soda, dry mustard, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon paprika and 1 teaspoon each salt and pepper in another dish.  Working in batches, dip the chicken in the egg mixture, turning to coat, then dredge in the flour mixture and shake off any excess. Fry the chicken in the hot oil until golden brown, about 4 minutes, adjusting the heat as needed. Drain on paper towels.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Spread the cut sides of the buns with some of the butter and lightly toast in the skillet, buttered-side down; spread with more butter. Put 2 pickle slices on each bun bottom; top with a piece of chicken and cover with the bun tops.
