Reviews for Ultimate Chicken Sandwiches
"Better than the fast food version! Great baked or pan fried."
"Everyone loved them. They are easy to make and easy to clean up afterwards. Nice flavor!"
"My family just loves these. They are really easy and quick to make."
"I have made these several times in years past. I love how tender the buttermilk makes the chicken. I add less cayenne so the kids will eat them and I spray the tops with a bit of cooking spray before baking to make them a little crispier. We love them!"
"Tasty sandwich! But I did pan-fry the chicken to give it a nice crispy texture."
"I have made these twice and I seem to get the same result..the breading is not crunchy or crispy at ALL (I am sure its because there is no frying involved) and the flavor is a bit ho-hum. I have even added extra seasonings to it and still..just a plain ol chicken sandwich in my opinion. :("
"This is one of the best chicken sandwiches I've tried."
