  • Cooking oil
  • ⅓ cup spicy sauce
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Salt (As per your taste)
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Tomato
  • Lettuce
  • Mayonnaise 
  • Hamburger buns


Step 1: For frying in a pan, heat 1 ½ to 2 cups of oil in a pan having a heavy bottom. If you want to deep fry, heat 5-7 cups of oil in a deep fryer. You can use any cooking oil like vegetable oil, sunflower oil or soybean refined oil except olive oil. Olive oil is not considered suitable for frying.

Step 2: In a large bowl or cake pan, mix the hot sauce, water and eggs.

Step 3: Now, combine the all-purpose flour, salt, paprika, black pepper, onion powder, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder in a shallow bowl. For a spicier twist, you can add chili powder too.

Step 4: Pound each chicken breast with a tenderizer until it is 3/8 inch thick. To make the chicken fit better in hamburger buns, you can cut the chicken breast in half before breading. 

Step 5: Coat each fillet with the all-purpose flour, then top with the spicy sauce/water/egg mixture and then top with flour. If you want a thicker layer, repeat the process. This is a crucial step that will greatly affect the crispness of the chicken.

Step 6: After the chicken is fully coated with the mixture, fry deeply for 8 to 12 minutes, or in a frying pan for 4 to 6 minutes on each side. After the frying is done, place the chicken on a cooling rack or a tray lined with paper towels to drain the excess oil from the chicken.

Step 7: Bake or grill the top of the burger in a dry skillet and make sandwiches with chicken, mayo, lettuce, and tomato.

Serve the sandwiches hot with your favorite sauce and mayo.

Notes to remember:

  • It is important that the chicken should be close to room temperature before frying. Deep-fried cold meat will cause it to jam and become chewy. Therefore, take the chicken out of the refrigerator 30 minutes in advance.
  • You can customize your Spicy Chicken Sandwich as per your taste by making it cheesy, adding extra spicy mayo or seasonings to put on extra flavors.
  • You can also make your own spicy mayo by mixing 1/4 cup mayonnaise and 1 pinch of cayenne pepper and then stir.
