My oldest son loves the Whiskey River Chicken Sandwich (it's our favorite sandwich to share). A couple of years ago I decided to see if I could come up with something close. I call my version the Sweet River Chicken Sandwich.
This is a little time consuming to make and definitely not very healthy so we reserve this for special occasions!
You will need:
Onion Straws (see below for directions)
"Red Bird" Seasoning (recipe below)
First make your Onion Straws.
Heat 2" of oil in skillet or deep fryer.
Thinly slice a large onion.
Next, cook your chicken breasts. You can grill them or pan fry them. Sprinkle with "Red Bird" seasoning as they are cooking.
Now to assemble your sandwich:
Layer a bun with the chicken, onion straws, lettuce and tomato. Add a slice of colby cheese, if you like.
Enjoy with french fries and lemonade!
"Red Bird" Seasoning Blend
1/4 C. salt
1 pkg. Lipton Tomato Soup powder
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. basil
Mix together and store in a spice container.
We love this sprinkled on burgers, fries and chicken.
