Every kid (and anyone who’s a kid at heart) loves fried chicken, and these sandwiches will send your taste buds soaring. Marinating in buttermilk overnight is a bit like brining. It tenderizes the chicken and brings out the flavour. You could add bacon and lettuce for a BLC sandwich.

Servings: 8


  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs, halved
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 8 hamburger buns
  • Pickle slices

Zesty Ketchup:

  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 3 tbsp mayo
  • 4 tsp Franks hot sauce


Combine buttermilk and chili powder in a large bowl. Immerse chicken and marinate overnight in refrigerator.

Remove chicken from marinade. Season flour with salt and pepper in a large bowl. Toss chicken in flour to coat.

Heat oil in a skillet to 1-inch depth over high heat. Add chicken pieces and cook about 4 minutes a side or until chicken is golden and cooked through.

Stir ketchup with mayo and hot sauce in a small bowl.

Serve chicken on hamburger buns and top with Zesty Ketchup and pickle slices.
