POPEYES CHICKEN SANDWICH COPYCAT RECIPE - TOP SECRET R…



Popeyes Chicken Sandwich Copycat Recipe - Top Secret R… image

When Popeyes debuted its new crispy chicken sandwich on August 12, 2019, the company was not prepared for the eruption of social media video posts comparing the new sandwich to Chick-fil-A’s classic chicken sandwich. As a result of the apparently unplanned instant viral campaign in which Popeyes almost always emerges as the winner, customers swarmed the stores and waited in long lines to try the now-famous sandwich. The buzz continued to build day by day, and just two weeks after its debut, the sandwich had sold out—a full month ahead of schedule. But sold out or not, you don’t need Popeyes to get the great taste combo of the crispy buttermilk breaded chicken breast, soft buttered brioche bun, mayo, and pickles. Fortunately, I was able to get my hands on several of the sandwiches before they were gone and cranked out a Popeyes Chicken Sandwich copycat recipe so you can now know how to make the Popeyes fried chicken sandwich any time you want. With these new tricks you’ll be able to make crispy chicken at home that’s flavorful, juicy, and tender, just like Popeyes, coated in a thick golden breading with the same light crunch. The secret to moist, tasty chicken is to brine it for several hours in a spicy mixture of buttermilk, pepper sauce, salt, and MSG. The buttermilk is slightly acidic, so it will help tenderize the chicken without making it too tough like harsher acids, while the salt enhances the flavor (as does the MSG) and keeps the chicken juicy. The MSG (monosodium glutamate) is an amino acid with a salt-like flavor that at one time was thought to be unhealthy, but is now considered an important culinary additive. Popeyes uses it in their chicken because it provides an essential savory flavor called “umami,” and you cannot make an accurate clone without it. To imitate the light, crispy breading, we’ll use baking powder in the flour. The baking powder forms bubbles in the flour when the chicken cooks so that the breading is tender and crispy, rather than crusty and dense. I found that self-rising flour works great since it conveniently has just the right amount of baking powder and salt already added. But don't use a low-protein self-rising flour like White Lily. That brand is awesome for biscuits, but its low gluten content makes it not stick well on chicken breasts. I used Gold Medal self-rising flour, and it worked great. If all-purpose flour is all you’ve got, that can work as well. I’ve put measurements for using all-purpose flour, plus baking powder and salt, in the Tidbits below. If you'd like to kick up your Popeyes Chicken Sandwich copycat recipe, clone the spicier version by replacing the plain mayo with my easy hack for Popeyes Spicy Mayonnaise.

Prep Time 15 minutes

Cook Time 15 minutes

Yield 4

Number Of Ingredients 16

- vegetable oil for frying
1/3 cup(s) Franks Red Hot Sauce
1/3 cup(s) water
1 - egg
1 cup(s) all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
4 teaspoon(s) cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon(s) coarsely ground black pepper
1 teaspoon(s) onion powder
1/2 teaspoon(s) paprika
1/8 teaspoon(s) garlic powder
4 - boneless, skinless chicken breast filets
- hamburger buns
- mayonnaise
- tomato
- lettuce

Steps:

  • If deep-frying, in a deep fryer or cast iron pot, heat 6-8 cups of oil to 375 degrees. If pan-frying, heat 1 1/2 - 2 cups oil (about 1/2 inch in the pan) in a large, heavy-bottomed frying pan.
  • In a large bowl or pie pan, whisk together hot sauce, water, and egg. In a shallow bowl or pie pan, combine flour, salt, cayenne pepper, black pepper, onion powder, paprika, and garlic powder.
  • Pound each chicken breast with a mallet/tenderizer until about 3/8 inch thick. The chicken may be much larger than the bun when it’s pounded thin. If so, you may want to cut the breast in half before breading to make the chicken fit better on the bun.
  • Coat each fillet in the flour.
  • Then in the hot sauce/water/egg mixture.
  • Then in the flour again. Repeat the dredge if you would like a thicker coating.
  • After all of the chicken is coated, deep fry for 8 to 12 minutes, or pan fry for 4 to 6 minutes on each side.
  • After frying, drain excess oil from the chicken by placing it on a cooling rack or on a plate covered with paper towels.
  • Grill the faces of the hamburger buns on a griddle or in a dry skillet (optional). Prepare sandwiches with chicken, mayonnaise, lettuce, and tomato.
