Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Sandwich

Ingredients

Buns
Hot Sauce
Lettuce
Tomato
1 Egg
Chicken
Spices
Flour
(You may also want to have Saran Wrap for when you pound the chicken)

Steps

First take your chicken breasts and slice them in half. Then take your saran wrap and place it over the chicken and lightly pound it (this will tenderize the meat). In a bowl crack one egg, pour in your hot sauce of choice and whisk together. In another bowl combine flour, cayenne pepper powder, garlic powder, cracked black pepper, and salt. Now it’s time to bread your chicken. Coat the chicken in the four mixture first, then the egg mixture, and back to the dry mix. Shake off excess flour and put the breaded chicken in the freezer for better results. Heat oil on medium fire and fry the chicken for 3-4 minutes on each side, salt and drain on a paper towel. Now it’s time to build your sandwich! Start with toasting your buns. Once toasted smear both buns with mayo, place your chicken on followed by lettuce, tomato, and your top bun.

The 15 Minute Dinner Series – Asian Noodle Soup

Ingredients

Noodles (Dried Ramen, udon, buckwheat etc.)
Vegetables (I used sweet pepper and mushrooms)
Scallion
1 Egg
1 1/2 Teaspoon Miso Paste
1 Tablespoon Vinegar
Sriracha
Soy Sauce
Sesame Oil
Honey

 

Steps

- First boil some water! Enough to cook the noodles and to have a broth, after all this is noodle soup! While you wait for the water to boil start thinly slicing your vegetables. You can use any vegetables really, but I used sweet red pepper, and mushrooms (thinly slicing your vegetables ensures that you vegetables will cook quickly). Once you water comes to a boil add your noodles! I used dried ramen noodles, you can use something else if you want. As your noodles start to cook add the miso paste, vinegar, Sriracha, soy sauce and a splash of sesame oil mix. Then add your whole egg (for a soft boil egg cook for 6 minutes, hardboiled around 10 minutes and take out and put in cool water). If you want the crispy noodles on top then remove some of the noodles and place on a paper towel to dry. Then in a pan add oil and noodles and crisp up! Add sliced vegetables into broth and let it cook down. To balance out the flavors I added a bit of honey. Let it cook down more. Plate and top with chopped scallion, crispy noodle (optional) and egg!
