     DIRECTIONS

    1. For this recipe start with the marinade. Whisk together buttermilk, pickle brine, Schultz's Spicy Original or Sweet Heat sauce and two teaspoons of Schultz's Seasoning & Rub, and then pour it into a large zip top bag. Cut your chicken breasts in half lengthwise and add them to the buttermilk marinade.  Push out the excess air, seal the bag and move your chicken to the refrigerator to marinate for at least six hours but overnight is best. 

    2. Once your chicken is marinated, remove your chicken breasts from the buttermilk and move to a baking rack to drain.  Add cornflakes to a food processor and pulse to create cornflake crumbs.  Move your cornflake crumbs to a large bowl and stir in the all purpose flour along with cayenne and salt. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees and line a baking pan with parchment paper or tin foil. Dredge the chicken pieces in the cornflake crumbs, pressing firmly to adhere the crumbs to all sides of the chicken.  Move the coated chicken to the baking pan and repeat until all chicken pieces are coated in cornflakes.  Lightly brush each of the chicken pieces with olive oil and bake for 20-25 minutes, turning your chicken over half way through the cooking time and continue cooking.

    3.  As your oven fried chicken is baking, make your hot chicken cayenne glaze.  In a small saucepan, add vegetable oil and butter and heat over medium heat. Increase your temperature slightly until you just start to see little bubbles start to form.  Whisk together your seasoning and spices in a separate bowl and then slowly start whisking into your heated oil. Make sure to whisk you're ingredients together well before adding to the oil.  Once your oven fried chicken is done, remove from the oven and using a basting brush, coat both sides of your chicken in the cayenne glaze. 

    4.  Get your hamburger buns ready, removing the top half from the bottom. Take the bottom half of the bun and add a small amount of ranch dressing as the base of your sandwich. Next, place your seasoned chicken breast on top of the ranch. Add 2-3 slices of pickle. Finally, add a scoop of coleslaw on top of that and place the remaining half of your hamburger bun back on top. Serve and enjoy!
