Ingredients

4 teaspoons ground black pepper

2 teaspoons paprika 

2 teaspoons salt 

1 teaspoon garlic powder

2 whole boneless skinless chicken breasts 

2 cups all-purpose flour 

1 gallon canola oil 

2 hoagie rolls 

Your favorite onion vinaigrette dressing, for sandwiches 

Your favorite spicy mayo, for sandwiches 

1 Roma tomato, thinly sliced and slices cut in half 

3/4 cup chopped lettuce

3/4 cup chopped spinach

1/2 purple onion, sliced 

Directions

Special equipment:
a deep-fryer
  1. Stir together the black pepper, paprika, salt and garlic powder in a bowl. Rub chicken with half the seasonings, then stir the remaining seasonings into the flour in a bowl. Let seasoned chicken rest in fridge 8 hours or up to overnight.
  2. Preheat oil in a deep-fryer to 350 degrees F.
  3. Dredge seasoned chicken in the seasoned flour. Fry until cooked through, 10 to 20 minutes. Place chicken in fridge until chilled, 1 to 2 hours.
  4. Split open hoagie rolls without cutting all the way through. Slice chilled chicken and glaze with onion dressing. Assemble sandwiches with mayo first, then veggies, then chicken. Enjoy!
