Ingredients

  • 1 cup plus one tablespoon seasoned flour, divided
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 medium chicken breast
  • Canola oil
  • Brioche bun
  • Butter
  • 3 thin slices ham
  • 1 slice Swiss cheese
  • Mustard barbecue sauce
  • Chef notes

    Up the flavor ante on fried chicken sandwiches with melty cheese, tangy barbecue sauce and thinly sliced ham on a buttery, toasted bun.

    Preparation

    1.

    Whisk 1 tablespoon of seasoned flour with the water in a shallow dish. Set aside.

    2.

    Divide the remaining seasoned flour in two shallow dishes. In one of the dishes, drizzle in 1 tablespoon of the water/flour mixture. Mix so you have little clumps for texture.

    3.

    Bread the chicken in the following order: dredge in the flour only, then dip into the flour/water mixture and lastly dredge in the moistened flour mixture.

    4.

    Preheat oven to 350°F. Heat a heavy skillet with about 1/4-inch canola oil to 325°F.

    5.

    Fry chicken breast for 3 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165°F.

    6.

    Butter and toast the bun. Place the ham in a pan and top with the cheese. Place the pan in the oven until the ham is warm and the cheese is melted.

    7.

    Place the bottom bun on a plate, top with 1 ounce barbecue sauce, the fried chicken, ham and cheese, and finish with the top bun.
