My Very Own Mini Buffalo Ranch Chicken Sandwich

We LOVE Jack in the Box. After a night out, we often stopped by Jack in the Box on our way home. We both did this before we ever met. They have such a wide variety of foods. It's great! Well, since moving to the middle of nowhere, Texas, we aren't so close to a Jack in the Box. It's a twenty minute drive. And the worst part is, their new commercials make us want them even more.

Anthony especially found the mini sirloin burger song to be extra catchy. When we drive home and pass a Jack in the Box, I hear "Way out west, where the west was won...Yippee Ya Ay Mini Sirloin Burgers Yee Haw! I always laugh so hard. We always stop at some point on our trip and have both acquired a love for their Mini Buffalo Ranch Chicken Sandwiches. Too bad we have to drive 20 minutes to enjoy them. So, I came up with my own Mini Buffalo Ranch Chicken Sandwiches.

1. I cut the chicken breasts up into smaller portions to fit on my mini buns I found at Wal-Mart. Then, I dipped them in a combination of flour and seasonings and then into a bowl with milk and eggs and then back into the flour bowl. I then threw them (very carefully) into a skillet with heated oil. (sorry there were no pictures of the coating, it got a bit messy).

2. When the chicken was done, I sat it on papertowels to drain the grease for a couple minutes and then dipped them in buffalo sauce. It was just a sauce that we had picked up at the store for wings. I put them back on the paper towel for a few minutes to absorb some of the sauce.
3. I toasted the mini buns with some butter for about five minutes before making the sandwich.
4.Place the chicken on one side of the bun and then put the ranch on the other side. Place them together. I ended up adding more ranch because this just wasn't enough!
And...the finished product! I took them up to the station and Anthony was truly impressed. So, I succeeded!
They were really pretty simple to make. I'm not a big fan of frying chicken, but other than that I had no problems! They were great! And cute!

I'm really glad you didn't hurt yourself making those! =)

And I'm really glad that even with my irrational hate of Jack in the Box, we've been able to stay friends all of these years! Guess that's why we never got married. =)

Wow, that looks SOOOOO good!! I see myself repeating this soon. What seasonings did you use?

I used salt, pepper, seasoning salt and a very small sprinkle of cayenne pepper. I'm not sure of the exact measurements, I just did some sprinkling.
