INGREDIENTS

Servings: 4

4 chicken breasts (5 ounces each)

4 extra large eggs

4 ounces whole milk

2 cups plain bread crumbs

4 brioche buns

12 bread and butter pickles

Canola oil for frying

Salt

Spicy pepper oil

4 tablespoons cayenne pepper

3 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

2 teaspoons Spanish paprika

16 ounces sunflower oil

PREPARATION

# Prepare the spicy pepper oil in a small mixing bowl by whisking together all the spices with the sunflower oil, until all the spices have dissolved into the oil. Set aside.

# Trim the excess fat off the sides of the chicken breast.

# Using a knife, score the chicken longways, cutting halfway through the chicken to help it cook more rapidly.

# In a medium-sized mixing bowl, crack the eggs and whisk with the milk.

# In a separate medium-sized mixing bowl, add the bread crumbs.

# Dip each chicken breast in the egg mixture, covering it completely, then transfer to the bread crumbs and coat completely. Repeat this process one more time.

# Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet.

# Fit a Dutch oven with thermometer and pour in oil for frying. Heat over medium-high until thermometer registers 340˚F/170˚C.

# Set the chicken breasts in, in batches, and fry for 2-3 minutes until golden brown.

# Place fried chicken on a wire rack set over a baking sheet, to drain. Sprinkle with salt.

# Transfer to the brioche buns.

# Whisk together the spicy oil so none of the seasoning settles to the bottom, and drizzle 2 tablespoons over each chicken breast.

# Add 3 bread and butter pickles on top of the chicken and place the top bun.

# Enjoy!
