Oven Fried Chicken Sandwiches with Spicy Chipotle “Mayo”

IMG_0629

So this post is about chicken sandwiches but I feel like its sort of a lie because they aren’t really fried and the chipotle mayo isn’t actually mayo but I’m trying to be upfront about it with the whole quotation mark thing and I just hope that’s enough for you.

I’d hate to lead you down a path where you felt mislead, you know? Like when you just start dating someone and you think things are going really well but then you find out something terrible about them like, idk, they hate olives. Or they wear flip flops when they aren’t at the beach. Or that they hate the sports team you love. (OK, that was a bs example and would literally never happen to me but I’m trying to cast a wide net here. One of my earliest memories of watching sports with my mom was the end of the World Cup when the losing team was crying and she said very sincerely, I just wish both teams could win. Which, not that I know even one thing about soccer, but I am quite certain that’s not how it works. And basically the point is that I inherited my intense interest in sports from my momma. Actually no, the point is, the fried chicken isn’t fried and the mayo is actually yogurt. Carry on.)

Ingredients
Chicken
2 lbs of chicken breasts
1 egg
1/3 cup milk (I used whole, personal preference)
1 cup flour (I used whole wheat)
4 tbs panko bread crumbs
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp chili powder
Oil or baking spray

Chipotle “Mayo”
1 cup greek yogurt
1 tbs adobo sauce
1 tbs lime juice
1/2 tsp salt

Put it together…
Lettuce or buns if you prefer
1 red onion, sliced
1 avocado (optional)

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a baking sheet. Rinse and trim the chicken breasts if necessary.
  2. Mix together the egg and the milk in one bowl, and in a separate bowl combine the flour, bread crumbs and spices.
  3. Dredge the chicken into the flour mixture, then the egg mixture, and then shake off the excess egg mixture and coat the chicken in the flour mixture once more.
  4. Lay the prepared chicken breasts on the baking sheet, and bake for 10 minutes on each side.
  5. Once they are cooked through, turn the broiler to high and broil the breasts until they are browned and crispy.
  6. To make the sauce, combine the yogurt, adobo sauce, lime juice and sauce together in a small bowl.
  7. To put it all together, layer the lettuce (or bun, if you prefer), chicken, sauce, red onion, avocado, and another piece of lettuce.
