Hellmann’s Spicy Mayo Fried Chicken Sandwich | Giant National Capital Barbecue Battle

Hellmann’s Spicy Mayo Fried Chicken Sandwich


  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1lb.)
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup Hellmann’s Spicy Mayo, divided
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup corn starch
  • 1 Tbsp. each paprika, onion power and garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 4 Brioche Buns
  • 12 Pickle Chips
  • 1 cup Shredded Lettuce


  1. Place chicken breast between layers of plastic wrap and evenly pound until 1/4 -inch thin. Cut in half to create a size to fit the bun.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together buttermilk and 4 Tbsp. of the Hellmann’s Spicy Mayo until well blended. Fully submerge chicken pieces in mixture. Set aside.
  3. In separate shallow bowl whisk together flour, corn starch, spices and salt until blended. Drizzle 2 Tbsp. of buttermilk mixture into flour mixture and gently mix with a fork to create a few shaggy clumps.
  4. Place vegetable oil in large high-sided heavy-duty skillet or pot until about ½-inch deep. Heat over medium-high heat or until temperature reaches 350F. Dredge one piece of chicken at a time into flour mixture gently pressing, including any clumps, to form a thick crust. Place in hot oil and fry 3 minutes per side or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Repeat with remaining chicken pieces.
  5. To build the sandwiches, evenly divide remaining Hellmann’s Spicy Mayo on top and bottom buns; then place each sandwich with fried chicken, pickles and lettuce
