Every kid (and anyone who's a kid at heart) loves fried chicken, and these sandwiches will send your taste buds soaring. Marinating in buttermilk overnight is a bit like brining. It tenderizes the chicken and brings out the flavour. You could add bacon and lettuce for a BLC sandwich.

Servings: 8

Ready time: 12 hours including marinating time


2 cups buttermilk

1 tsp chili powder

8 boneless skinless chicken thighs, halved

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Vegetable oil for frying

8 hamburger buns

Pickle slices

Zesty Ketchup

1/3 cup ketchup

3 tbsp mayo

4 tsp Franks hot sauce


Combine buttermilk and chili powder in a large bowl. Immerse chicken and marinate overnight in refrigerator.

Remove chicken from marinade. Season flour with salt and pepper in a large bowl. Toss chicken in flour to coat.

Heat oil in a skillet to 1-inch depth over high heat. Add chicken pieces and cook about 4 minutes a side or until chicken is golden and cooked through.

Stir ketchup with mayo and hot sauce in a small bowl.

Serve chicken on hamburger buns and top with Zesty Ketchup and pickle slices.
