About Us

Crispy juicy buttermilk fried chicken drenched in jalapeño honey on a toasted bun with a buttermilk ranch sauce.

If your craving fried chicken sandwiches we’ve got a good for you. Perfectly crispy on the outside and tender so juicy on the inside. Served over a buttery brioche bun with shredded crisp lettuce, sweet & spicy dill pickles, covered in jalapeño honey finished with buttermilk ranch sauce.

For best results, marinate the chicken overnight in buttermilk and spices. Using buttermilk helps the crust develop and all those crinkles that make it extra crispy. Coating the chicken in flour + cornstarch will make the batter crispy and light and of course all the spices that give the sandwich its flavor.

The jalapeño honey adds a nice touch of sweetness and spiciness. Very simple to make and you can add it to all kinds of recipes.

To get the perfect side chicken cutlets simple pound your chicken breast to about ½ inch thick and cut it in half crosswise. You’ll end up with a chicken cutlet that fits perfectly on your bun.

We hope you enjoyed this fried chicken sandwich!

Cheers
