My neighbor and good friend called me in a panic one night. Her 15-year-old sister really wanted a spicy chicken sandwich that tasted just like Wendy’s for her birthday dinner, and she didn’t know where to start. I looked up some recipes, and we went from there. They turned out fabulous! Her sister loved them. So, if you are missing that spicy chicken sandwich, give this recipe a try! – Kirsti
Spicy Chicken Sandwiches
7 chicken breasts
⅓ c. chipotle hot sauce
⅔ c. water
6 c. oil
1 c. EGF All-Purpose Flour
2 ½ tsp. garlic salt
4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. black pepper
½ tsp. paprika
7 GF hamburger buns
Mix the chipotle sauce and water in a medium-sized bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, garlic salt, cayenne, pepper, and paprika.
Cut the chicken breasts so they are half as thick. Then cut them in half width-wise so each piece will fit easily on a bun. Use the flat side of a meat tenderizer to pound each piece of chicken until flat.
Dip each piece of chicken first into the dry ingredients, then the wet ingredients, and then the dry again to completely coat them in batter.
Deep-fry each piece of chicken until cooked all the way through, approximately 4–5 minutes.
Serve on top of a gluten-free bun with mayonnaise and lettuce.
Makes 21 sandwiches (Freeze leftovers and reheat them for 20 minutes at 350 degrees).
