Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

I think if I had added bacon my head would have exploded but these were excellent. Served with Schwan's oven-baked steak fries and a cold "Belt and Suspenders" beer from our favorite brewery in Chicagoland BuckleDown Brewing (now sold at our village grocers).

3 hamburger buns

Combine:
1 cup coleslaw mix
6 tablespoons ranch dressing

1 to 2 jalapeno peppers de-seeded and chopped.

Fried Buffalo Chicken Ingredients:

1 cup flour
1 teaspoon of sea salt
2 teaspoons garlic powder
½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1 cup bread crumbs
3 chicken breasts – cut into bite-sized pieces (these were smaller pieces, if really large, just use 2)

1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons olive oil

Buffalo wing sauce:

1 and 1/3 cup Frank's Red Hot hot pepper sauce
1 cup unsalted butter
3 Tablespoons white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce.

Mix in saucepan and cook until bubbling, remove from heat until ready to assemble the sandwich.  Double if you want extra sauce (great as a meatloaf topper another day, especially if you stuff the meatloaf with chopped and sauteed celery & matchstick carrots, and add in some blue cheese crumbles).

Directions for chicken:

1.         Pour flour and seasonings into a large bowl. In a separate bowl, combine eggs and milk, whisking until combined. Put bread crumbs in a seperate bowl.

2.        Coat chicken breast pieces in flour, shaking off excess. Dip next in egg and milk mixture, then in breadcrumb mixture.

3.         Heat butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook chicken breasts until golden brown on each side and 165  F. degrees internal temperature  (approximately 3 minutes per side).

4.         Pour buffalo wing sauce into a medium mixing bowl. Dip each breaded chicken breast into the sauce, making sure it is well coated. Remove and set aside.

Assemble sandwich, bun, chicken, 1/3 of the coleslaw mix and some of the sliced jalapenos (in place of peppers you can use crumbled blue cheese but we liked them this way.).
