about 1 1/2 hours. Divide the dough in half, rolling each half into a
12-inch circle 1/4 inch thick. Spread with the soft butter and cut

combine the flour, sugar, pepper, and salt. dip each piece of chicken in
milk until it is fully moistened. Roll the moistened chicken in the flour
mixture until completely coated. Drop all four chicken pieces into the hot
oil and close the pressure cooker. When steam starts shooting through the
pressure release, set the timer for 3-1/2 minutes. IMPORTANT!!!!
DO NOT CLOSE STEAM RELEASE. IT IS VERY DANGEROUS! While the chicken is cooking, spread a coating of melted butter on the face of each bun. When
the chicken is done, remove it from the oil and drain or blot on paper
towels. Place two pickles on each bottom bun; add a chicken breast, then
the top bun. To make a deluxe chicken sandwich, simply add two tomato
slices and a leaf of lettuce. Mayonnaise also goes well on this
sandwich--it is a side order at the restaurant.

5. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray a light coating of cooking spray
on a baking sheet.
6. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and use the remaining reserve
flour to dust a rolling surface. Roll about one-third of the dough
to just under 1/16th of inch thick. Trim the edges square (a pizza
cutter or wheel works great for this), then transfer the dough to a
lightly greased baking sheet. Use the rolling pin to transfer the
dough. Simply pick up one end of the dough onto a rolling pin, and roll
the dough around the rolling pin. Reverse the process onto the baking
sheet to transfer the dough.

square pieces. Use the blunt end of a skewer or broken toothpick to
poke a hole in the center of each piece.

(crackers will already be quite salty) and bake for 8-10 minutes,

light brown. Repeat the rolling and baking process with the remaining
