  • 1
    4 cups Vegetable Oil (to fry)
    To Prepare the Chicken: Place a heavy bottomed Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the Oil and bring to 375 °F.
  • 2
    1/4 cup Cornstarch
    1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
    Salt
    2 tablespoons Homemade Ranch Seasoning (plus more for seasoning)
    4 Boneless Chicken Thighs
    Freshly Ground Black Pepper
    In a zip top bag or large bowl, mix together the Cornstarch, Baking Powder, a pinch of Salt and the Ranch Seasoning. Season the Chicken on both sides with Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper and add to the Cornstarch mixture. Coat the Chicken well but be sure to shake off any excess.
  • 3
    1/2 cup Cornstarch
    1/2 cup Flour
    1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
    4 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning
    1 teaspoon Cayenne
    Salt
    1/4 cup Pilsner
    1/4 cup Water
    1/2 cup Vodka
    To Make the Batter: In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together all of the dry Batter ingredients, and then add all of the wet ingredients, stirring to smooth out any lumps.
  • 4
    Cornstarch coated Chicken
    Batter
    Ranch Powder
    When the Oil is up to temperature, dredge the Cornstarch coated Chicken pieces in to the Batter, letting any excess drip off and lay in to the Oil. Fry the Chicken in batches, one or two at a time so the temperature of the Oil doesn’t drop, and fry until golden brown on both sides. Remove to a paper towel lined tray, season with more Ranch Powder, and set aside to drain until you’re ready to assemble your sandwich.
  • 5
    1/4 cup Good Malt Vinegar
    2 teaspoons Your Favorite BBQ Sauce
    1 small minced Shallot
    3/4 cup Olive Oil
    Salt
    Freshly Ground Black Pepper
    1 cup finely Shredded Romaine Lettuce
    1 cup finely Shredded Iceberg Lettuce
    1/4 cup Picked Cilantro leaves
    3 tablespoons Sliced Scallions
    For the Vinaigrette and Slaw: Whisk together the Vinegar, BBQ Sauce, Shallot and Olive Oil. Season well with Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper and add the Lettuces, Cilantro, and Scallion. Toss to coat.
  • 6
    fried Chicken Thigh
    Dill Pickle Chips (to taste)
    4 Potato Rolls (lightly toasted)
    Slaw
    To assemble a Sandwich: Place one fried Chicken thigh on the bottom half of the Potato Roll. Add 3-4 Pickle Chips. Place as much or as little of this slaw mixture on the sandwich, followed by the top Bun. Serve immediately and enjoy!

    Helpful Tips
    1. Vodka mixed into batter helps give chicken an extra crispy skin when fried.
    2. Leave on the skin, as it is full of flavor.
    3. Once chicken comes out of the fryer sprinkle with ranch powder.
