Fried chicken dunked in buffalo hot sauce served on a toasted potato bun with homemade ranch dressing tossed with shredded lettuce.
  • 4 chicken breasts boneless and skinless
  • 1½ cups buttermilk
  • ¼ cup hot sauce
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • 4 potato buns
  • 1 tbsp salted butter
  • 2 cups lettuce head chopped
  • ranch dressing
  • ⅔ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup buttermilk
  • ⅓ cup chopped parsley
  • ¼ cup chopped dill
  • ¼ cup chopped chives
  • 1 tsp ground garlic
  • 1 tsp ground onion
  • 1 tsp celery salt
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • buffalo sauce
  • ½ cup salted butter
  • ⅔ cup Frank's red hot sauce
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  1. Start by marinating the chicken. Prep the chicken by cutting off the tenders, pound down the breasts into an even thickness and cut them to size to fit onto the buns. Toss the buttermilk with the hot sauce and submerge all the chicken into the liquid. Let rest refrigerated 1 hour or overnight.
  2. To make the ranch: Combine all the ingredients and let rest until ready to use. Just before serving, toss the chopped lettuce in the ranch just until coated.
  3. Preheat the frying oil to 350 degrees F.
  4. For the buffalo sauce: in a medium sauce pan, melt the butter. Once the butter is melted stir in the hot sauce and cayenne pepper. Simmer on low for 5 minutes until well combined.
  5. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour and spices, season with salt and pepper.
  6. Dredge the chicken pieces through the flour mixture, coating both sides and drop it into the oil once hot. Fry until golden brown on both sides about 3-4 minutes a side or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. Let rest onto a wire rack until all the chicken is cooked.
  7. Once all the chicken is cooked and is resting it's time to assemble the burgers. Spread a touch of butter on both sides of the bun and toast in the oven or in a pan just a little bit, about 1 minutes so that the buns aren't too soft.
  8. To assemble: spread some ranch on the bottom bun, place a large helping of the slaw across the bottom bun, try not to get a lot of liquid, next dunk the fried chicken pieces in the buffalo sauce and place on the sandwich to finish it off. Enjoy!
