Crispy Chicken Sandwich

Crispy Chicken Sandwich

This crispy chicken sandwich is my go-to recipe every time I’m craving a chicken sandwich. The chicken cutlet is slightly spicy, juicy on the inside, and crispy on the outside. the chicken burger is then served with creamy mango sauce, gourmet sesame bun, and red cabbage coleslaw.

To make the spicy crispy fried chicken first you need to brine the boneless chicken breast or thighs with hot sauce and spices and let it chill in a fridge overnight. The next morning grab your chicken and dredge it in a dry batter, then dip it in ice-cold water. Repeat the process once more and set aside for 5 minutes then fry the chicken until golden brown.

  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • hot sauce
  • Salt & black pepper


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tbsp black pepper

Creamy mango sauce

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 mango, roughly chopped
  • 1 red chili

  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1 carrot, peeled and sliced

  1. In a bowl mix egg white, garlic powder, hot sauce, salt, and pepper. Add chicken thighs and mix until chicken is well coated. Marinade for at least 4 hours or overnight. 
  2. Make the mango sauce; put all the sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor and blitz until smooth. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.
  3. In a medium bowl combine all the dredge ingredients. Dredge the chicken with flour mixture, then dip it in ice-cold water, and dredge again in a flour mixture. Let the chicken pieces sit for 5 minutes before frying.
  4. Meanwhile, put the carrot, red cabbage, and chopped cilantro in a mixing bowl. Season the veggies with salt and pepper. Add vinegar and about 3 tbsp mango sauce, and mix well.
  5. Fry the chicken in hot oil until crispy, and drain on kitchen paper to remove the excess oil.
  6. Toast burger bun. Slater the bottom bun with 1-2 teaspoons mango sauce, and add crispy fried chicken, coleslaw, and extra sauce.
