Food Babe’s Open on Sunday Sandwich
Ingredients
•    2 chicken breasts equaling about 1 pound
•    1 large egg
•    1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
•    1 cup pickle juice
•    12 pickle slices
•    3 tbsp white or apple cider vinegar
•    1 ½ tsp paprika
•    1 cup flour of your choice (I used spelt)
•    1 tbsp powdered sugar
•    1/4 tsp dry mustard
•    1/4 tsp baking soda
•    4 sprouted whole wheat hamburger buns or buns of your choice
•    1 tbsp butter
***All ingredients organic, except bread smith buns shown below***
Directions
Marinating:
1.    About 4 hours before or the day before – Cut chicken breasts in half making 4 similar size pieces
2.    With a meat tenderizer or small hammer pound the chicken to ½ inch thick
3.    Sprinkle salt, pepper and 1/2 tsp paprika to both sides of chicken
4.    Place chicken in 1 cup pickle juice and let marinate for at least 4 hours to one day prior to baking
Baking:
1.    Preheat oven to 450 degrees
2.    Place pickle slices in vinegar and let marinate while you prep the chicken
3.    In a bowl, combine and stir flours, sugar, baking soda, 1 tsp paprika, dry mustard and set aside
4.    In another bowl, whisk egg and almond milk together
5.    Remove chicken from marinade and dredge one piece of chicken at a time in egg bath, ensuring each side is wet and dredge in flour mixture coating each side.  Place each flour coated chicken piece on a wire rack with pan on bottom
6.    Spray each piece liberally with olive oil covering both sides
7.    Place tray of chicken in oven
8.    After 12 mins, turn each piece of chicken over mid way through baking
9.    After about 25 mins – 30 mins, chicken should be completely cooked and crispy
10.    Take out of the oven and let rest at least 5 mins
11.    While chicken is resting, butter buns and place in oven for 3-5 mins
12.    Take buns out of oven, place 3 pickles on bottom bun and chicken on top and ENJOY!
 Makes 4 servings. Serve with a nice large cabbage salad or steamed broccoli (If you really want fries, I suggest baked sweet potato fries)
