This burger if you can call it that is beloved by many and I guess some are not sure what to think.

We don’t normally do recreation recipes on this channel but this recipe is easy to make and will be something you can show off to your friends.

Step 1: To Start We Need to Make the Special Sauce.

In a bowl add:

  • ½ a cup of mayonnaise.
  • ¼ of a cup of tomato sauce.
  • tsp of garlic.
  • 1 tsp of Frank’s hot sauce
  • 1 tsp of djion mustard
  • 1 tsp of pickle juice.

Mix it all together and place in the fridge until it’s needed.

Step 2: Take You Chicken Breasts and Slice Them in Half Length Ways.

Step 3: Next We Need to Season the Flour.

  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 tsp dried oregano

Stir the spices into the flour.

Step 4: In a Second Bowl We Have Buttermilk.

Coat the chicken in the buttermilk and then the flour.

Double dip and coat again with buttermilk and flour.

Repeat for the rest of the chicken.

A great tip is to let the chicken sit for 5 to 10 after it’s been breaded before frying. This will help the breading to stick to the chicken.

Step 5: Light a Chimney of Charcoal

Place cast iron pan over the charcoal and fill with oil.

A few people have asked me why I deep fry thing on the grill.

First of all, it looks cool and secondly my wife isn’t a fan of me stinking out the house with the smell of deep frying.

Step 6: Now It’s Time to Fry the Chicken.

Carefully lower the chicken into the oil.

It’s important to cook the chicken in batches, otherwise, the oil will reduce in temp and leave you with soggy chicken.

Fry the chicken for 5 to 10 minutes or until fully cooked through.

Step 7: Turn the Chicken Every Couple of Minutes, This Will Help the Chicken to Evenly Cook on Both Sides.

When cooking with oil over charcoal or a campfire it can be a risk, so it’s important to have some safety measures in place.

This fried chicken is looking amazing, beautifully golden brown.

Once the chicken is cooked through, remove it from the oil and let it drain on a cooling rack lined with paper towel.

Step 8: Next Fry Off Some Bacon.

Step 9: Now It’s Time to Put It All Together.

Spoon on the special sauce we made on both pieces of chicken.

Then add a layer of peppercorn cheese.

Followed by the bacon.

Place the other piece of chicken on top.
