Nashville Fried Chicken sandwiches

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce
  • Peanut oil
  • 4 brioche hamburger buns
  • 6 pats of butter
  • 9 sliced bread and butter pickles

In a large mixing bowl combine buttermilk and hot sauce.

Place chicken in mixture and allow to marinate for a 10-15 minutes.

Removed chicken, let excess mixture drip off chicken and place one by one into the breading. Be sure to pat the breading on chicken.

Place breaded chicken on a baking sheet in refrigerator and allow to sit for 10 minutes.

In a cast iron skillet, pour peanut oil into skillet and turn heat to medium. Use a thermometer to allow oil to heat to 305 degrees.

Once oil is at temperature, place three pieces of chicken in the oil and cook on one side for 5 minutes. Flip to other side and allow to cook for 5-6 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.

Remove chicken from oil and place on a wire rack.

In a separate pan, use 3 pats of butter and turn heat to medium. Allow to melt and place two buns into pan for 2-3 minutes, keeping an eye on buns to ensure they do not burn. Repeat for remaining buns.

On each bottom bun, place fried chicken thigh and add with Nashville hot sauce and three pickle slices. Top with bun and enjoy immediately.
