4 sandwiches


  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, divided

  • 1 egg

  • ¼ cup ranch dressing mix (such as Hidden Valley®)

  • 2 chicken breasts

  • 1 cup vegetable oil

  • ½ cup mayonnaise

  • ¼ cup sriracha sauce

  • 4 potato rolls

  • 16 dill pickle chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Place 1/2 cup flour in a small bowl.

  3. Beat egg in a shallow bowl with a fork.

  4. Place 1 cup flour in a bowl; mix in ranch dressing.

  5. Split chicken breasts to create 4 pieces. Coat each piece with plain flour, dip in egg, and coat with flour-ranch mixture. Place on a wire rack set over a rimmed baking sheet.

  6. Heat oil in a large saucepan until almost boiling. Add 2 pieces chicken; fry until lightly golden, turning once, about 5 minutes. Return chicken to the wire rack. Repeat with remaining 2 pieces chicken.

  7. Bake chicken in the preheated oven until juices run clear, about 10 minutes.

  8. Mix mayonnaise and sriracha sauce together in a small bowl. Spread on rolls. Place 4 pickle slices on each roll. Place 1 piece of chicken on each sandwich.
