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

  • Beat egg in a shallow bowl with a fork.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

Made with and without the ranch dressing. Loved it either way. Hit the spot with a little bit of spice. Thank you! Read More

This was very good! The chicken was so moist almost melt in your mouth. I had to cook 2 pieces longer than the other 2 because they were SO thick. I had also soaked them in buttermilk (before I saw this recipe). Once again it was very good! Read More

If I wanted to eat at Chikfillet I would never do it again since I can just make this perfect knockoff recipe. I used a deep fryer with 2 cups of canola/veggie oil instead of the pan frying/oven baking combo. Took about 5-5.5 minutes at 375F to get the filets to 165F. The ranch dressing is lost in the frying and covered up with the mayo/sriracha sauce, so you could probably leave it out. Toast the buns and don't skip the pickle. Read More

Made this chicken by the recipe except I salted the chicken breasts just a little before I coated it with the first flour. It is a really good easy recipe. I didn't make sandwiches I served it just as a piece of fried chicken with sides. My family loved it! Read More
