This Buffalo Chicken Burger is crispy, spicy, and so delicious.
Total Time:30 minutes
2 chicken breasts
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper, divided
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2cup buffalo sauce
2 burger buns
Blue cheese dressing
Cover each chicken breast in two layers of plastic wrap and use a rolling pin or something else heavy and unbreakable to pound your chicken to an even thickness, about half an inch.
Place your flattened chicken breasts in a sealable bag or container. Pour over the buttermilk and add one teaspoon of cayenne pepper. Give your bag a good squish to mix things up and make sure your chicken is completely covered. Let this sit in the fridge for at least an hour. You could do this in the morning before work.
On a plate or in a shallow container, mix the flour, salt, pepper, and another teaspoon of cayenne.
Put a large skillet on the stove and add enough oil to cover the bottom. Turn the heat up to medium to heat up the oil before the chicken goes in.
Remove your chicken breasts from the buttermilk, allowing any excess to drip off, and dredge each piece of chicken in the seasoned flour until covered completely.
Fry your chicken breasts for about four or five minutes per side or until golden brown and cooked through.
While your chicken is cooking add your buffalo sauce to a bowl or container that's large enough to fit your chicken breast.
Once your chicken is cooked through, carefully move it to the sauce bowl and turn the chicken in the sauce a few times until it's completely coated.
Add your chicken breast to the bun and top with blue cheese dressing and any other toppings you desire.
