Spicy Chicken Sandwiches

Super simple to make, and very good.  So much better than Wendy's Spicy Chicken Sandwich.  You are going to read this recipe and think that I made a mistake and put to much cayenne pepper, but it's right.   It won't be to spicy.

(Serves 4)

*vegetable oil for frying
*1/3 cup red hot pepper sauce
*2/3 cup water
*1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
*2 teaspoons salt
*4 teaspoons cayenne pepper
*1 teaspoon ground black pepper
*1 teaspoon onion powder
*1/2 teaspoon paprika
*1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
*4 hamburger buns
*4 slices pepper-jack cheese
*8 teaspoons mayonnaise
*1 tomato, sliced
*dill pickle slices (optional)

~Mix the hot pepper sauce and water in a bowl.
~Combine the flour, salt, cayenne pepper, black pepper, onion powder, paprika & garlic powder in a large bowl or plate.
~Pound each of the chicken pieces until about 3/8 inch thick.
~Trim any fat from chicken.
~Coat each piece of chicken with the flour.
~Then  dip in hot pepper sauce mixture.
~Coat chicken again in the flour mixture and set in a baking dish.
~Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
~Preheat oil in deep fryer (or heavy skillet) to 350 degrees.
~Fry the chicken for 10 minutes or until they are crispy & brown.
~Remove from oil & place on paper towel to remove any excess oil.
~Grill each bun 
~Put 2 teaspoons mayonnaise on the top section of each bun.
~Place a couple pickles over mayo.
~Place a slice of tomato over tomato.
~Place lettuce over tomato.
~Place chicken on top of bottom bun.
~Place a slice of cheese on top of chicken.
~Assemble top bun over bottom bun and serve warm.

`add a couple slices of cooked bacon to sandwich.
`substitute mayo with bleu cheese dressing

**For a healthier version of this, spray a cookie sheet with a cooking spray and bake chicken in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes or until done.
