The Tracy: (Texas Toast Chicken Sandwich)

Chicken-Sandwich
Texas Toast Chicken Sandwich
     This dinner combination came to me while watching television.  As usual those typical commercials come on that try to entice you to run right out, hop into your car, and go straight to the drive thru restaurant in your town and purchase the newest, over fried, over processed sandwich. Even though I am not a fan of fast food at all and rarely eat it because when I do I usually get sick, however I will admit those commercials make my mouth water a bit. So I am sitting there watching and decide I need to come up with another great chicken sandwich. One of my cousins had recently been in and she is from Texas. What better meal to create than a tribute to the southern state she calls home. I decided to combine the flavors of a good fried chicken with some peppery cheese, BBQ sauce, and wonderful toasted garlicky bread.  This recipe is so easy even an idiot can do it. Please enjoy The Tracy!

 
Ingredients:
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Flour
  • Egg
  • Cornflake crumbs
  • Garlic powder
  • Cayenne powder
  • Vegetable oil
  • 4 slices Texas toast, (store bought)
  • Pepper jack cheese
  • BBQ sauce
  • Mayo
  • Bread and butter pickles

    
     First, in order to make this sandwich you have to fry up the chicken. I took a combination of flour, cornflake crumbs, garlic powder, and some cayenne powder and combined them. I dredged the chicken in some egg and then into the flour combo and fry on both sides in a skillet of oil until nice and brown. Then place the chicken onto a baking sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes.
You can then cook the Texas toast slices in the oven alongside the chicken. Just follow the directions on the box.  

     
     Once both the chicken and the toast are complete all that is left is putting the sandwich together. Take a slice of pepper jack cheese and lay it over the chicken. Sit chicken under your broiler just until the cheese melts and starts to bubble. Meanwhile mix together some BBQ sauce and mayo until you have a nice condiment. Place the chicken between the two slices of toast, coat some BBQ mayo on the top and lay some bread and butter pickles on top of the chicken. Viola! This sandwich was amazing. Quick, simple, delicious, with just a slight kick of heat. I suggest giving this a try. Serves 2
