  • 1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard seeds
  • ~~ For the Spicy Mayo ~~
  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed with press or grated on microplane
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce (I used Frank”™s Red Hot)
  • For the Pickle Coleslaw:
  • 3/4 small jalapeno, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 small head green cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 small head red cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup Bread-and-Butter Pickles, plus 3 tablespoons pickle juice
  • ~~ For the Fried Chicken ~~
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut in half crosswise
  • Canola oil, for frying
  • 2 hamburger buns
  • Nonstick cooking spray


Bread-and-Butter Pickles DAY ONE: In large covered container, stir together water and salt until salt is dissolved. Add cucumbers; cover and refrigerate overnight.

Bread-and-Butter Pickles DAY TWO: In medium saucepot, stir together jalapeno, vinegar, sugar, celery seeds, turmeric and mustard seeds. Bring to a boil. Drain cucumbers from salt water; add cucumbers to saucepot. Return mixture to a boil; remove from heat. Let cool, then transfer to a covered container and refrigerate until chilled.

Make Spicy Mayo: In small bowl, stir together all ingredients. Cover and refrigerate.

Make Pickle Coleslaw: In large bowl, toss together all ingredients. Cover and refrigerate.

Make Fried Chicken: In a shallow bowl, stir together flour, salt and pepper. Pour buttermilk into another shallow bowl. Dip each piece of chicken (both sides) in flour, shaking off excess. Dip in buttermilk, shaking off excess. Dip in flour again.

Pour 1/2-inch oil in large, deep pot. Heat oil to 350 degrees F (use a deep fry thermometer). Place chicken in oil and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side or until deep golden brown. Transfer to paper-towel lined plate to drain.

Meanwhile, spray cut sides of buns with nonstick spray. In a large, dry skillet, toast buns over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown.

Spread buns with Spicy Mayo and assemble sandwiches using Fried Chicken and Pickle Coleslaw (you will have some extra coleslaw left over).
