Calories 460kcal


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 chicken breasts (pounded and cut in two)
  • 1 cup flour (all purpose)
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs (plain)
  • 1/2 cup pickle juice
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 3 inches 3 inches peanut oil
  • lettuce leaves
  • brioche buns
  • pickles for garnish if desired


  • Presoak the chicken breasts in pickle juice.
  • Place chicken breasts into a sealable bag and pound the chicken breasts to about 1/2 inch thickness. Then cut the chicken breasts in half to make 4 sandwiches. 
  • Add milk and eggs to a bowl and place the chicken breasts into the milk mixture and allow to sit for 30 minutes. 
  • Mix the breadcrumbs, flour, and remaining seasonings on a dish. Remove the chicken breasts and coat them completely in the flour mixture. 
  • Heat the oil on medium high heat.
  • Place the chicken breasts into the heated oil and fry them for 5-7 minutes or until fully cooked and golden brown on the outside. 
  • Serve on brioche buns with lettuce and pickle slices. 


  1. Soak the chicken breasts in pickle juice and then soak in the milk and egg mixture up to a day before making.
  2. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. 
  3. Leave out the pickle juice if you don't like the flavor! The longer you soak the chicken in the juice, the stronger the flavor will be. Consider soaking it for a smaller amount of time if you like the flavor but want to decrease the amount.
