Mutts Original Chicken Sandwich

It took four years and thousands of sandwiches for Kyle Noonan of Mutts Canine Cantina to create what he thinks is the perfect chicken sandwich. He joins Good Day to share the recipe.

Mutts Original Chicken Sandwich

Chicken Breast, butterflied    
Chicken Dredge
Egg Wash        
Burger Bun            
Melted Butter
American Cheese
Mutts Sauce
Dill Pickle Chips

Coat the chicken in the dredge on all sides.  Pat off excess flour.

Fully submerge the dredged cutlet in the wash making sure all dredge is soaked in the wash.

Return the chicken back to the dredge once more and coat all sides with a thin layer of dredge.
*The second layer of dredge should appear dry on the surface of the chicken.

Deep fry at 350 degrees until the cutlet is firm and fully cooked to 165 degrees and the breading is crisp and golden brown, about 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, brush the interior of each bun slice with melted butter and cook on a 350-degree flat top griddle for 3 minutes, until the interior of the bun is golden brown and the bun is fully warmed through.

Spread sandwich sauce evenly on both sides (2 tsp on each side) of the crust side of the bun.

Build the sandwich in the following order from bottom to top: bottom bun, sauce, American cheese, chicken, pickles, sauce, top bun.
