I was lucky enough to have received 3 packages of Nature's Pride's New line of Premium Harvest Deli Rolls and Bakery Buns as part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Progrom. This is my second post reviewing what I received. My first post was about a Chickepea Burger that I served on Natures Pride Premium Harvest 100% Whole Wheat Bakery Buns. It was fantastic!!
For the Country White Deli Rolls, I decided to go with meat. But not your typical deli sandwich with sliced meats. I wanted something hardy, full of flavor and appetite enhancing ingredients.
My daughter wanted something spicy.
I found a recipe on BakeSpace.com called Double Dipped Spicy Chicken. It looked crispy and sounded great!
The only change I made was to exclude the allspice. Oh, and I didn't have any buttermilk, so I mixed some lemon juice with milk....and that was that.
In a nut shell, combine the following:
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Heat up some vegetable oil for frying. Probably about 1/4 inch in a heavy skillet.
I butterflied a chicken breast and then sliced that in half for the perfectly sized, crispy chicken slices to fit on the deli rolls.
Season the chicken with some salt and pepper. Dredge each piece of chicken through the flour mixture. Dip into 1 cup of buttermilk, and back into the flour for a final coating.
Fry the chicken until golden brown and set onto a paper towel to absorb the excess grease
I then mixed about 3/4 cup of mayo with one minced garlic. Toasted the deli rolls. Spread the mayo on each slice (I'm one of those people who really likes mayonnaise). And add your favorite sandwich fixings. For me this was some greens from a spring salad mix (it had all sorts of stuff in it that I don't even know what they're called), thinly sliced tomatoes and red onions and a couple slices of provolone cheese.
It was a fantastic sandwich!! The Natures Pride Premium Harvest Country White Deli Roll was wonderful! It was soft yet held together...even to the last bite! None of that ripping, crumbling or falling apart. I loved the flavor. Not sweet, not overpowering. The perfect vehicle for holding together all the yummy good stuff inside.
As for the chicken recipe. I think next time I'll add more cayenne pepper and paprika. I didn't find it spicy. It was good, don't get me wrong...but it didn't have the spicy flavor that I was looking for. I think in my head I was envisioning something more like those spicy crispy chicken sandwiches that you find at Jack-In-The-Box. Only better of course. I mean....homemade is always better, right?
