When I created this recipe, I knew that I wanted to stick with the components of a classic American fried chicken sandwich. I mean, what can be more American than donuts and fried chicken? So I went with the classic coating for the fried chicken but added a spice mix after removing it from the pan to give it more of a kick, which is exactly what it did. I like Russian dressing on my sandwiches, so I knew that was a must. And to change up the classic coleslaw, I used broccoli slaw for more of a crunch. In my opinion, no sandwich is complete without pickles, so we had to put that in too. (If you read my articles, you know the obsession is real.)



  • 6 chicken cutlets, butterflied or sliced thinly

  • oil, for frying

Wet Mix For Chicken

  • 1 cup pareve milk, such as Gefen Almond Milk

  • 1/2 cup dill pickle juice

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1 teaspoon pepper

  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

Dry Mix For Chicken

  • 2 cups Glicks Flour

  • 1/2 cup cornstarch

  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt

  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder

  • 2 teaspoons paprika

  • 2 teaspoons chili powder

Spice Mix

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 2 teaspoons sweet paprika (or regular paprika)

  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder

Broccoli Slaw

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 16-ounce (450-gram) bag broccoli slaw mix

Classic Sandwich Dressing

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

Build Your Own Donut Sandwich

  • 2 dill pickles, sliced into rounds

  • 1/2 cup fried onions

  • 6 unglazed donuts (without holes)


Prepare the Chicken and Spice Mixes


Mix all wet-mix ingredients in a bowl. Add the chicken. Cover the bowl and place in the fridge for one to two hours to marinate.


Meanwhile, prepare the dry mix by mixing everything together in a shallow dish. Prepare the spice mix by mixing it all in a small bowl. Set aside.


Remove the chicken from the fridge and add six tablespoons of the wet mix into the dry mix. Using your hands, mix it together until you get a crumble-like consistency.


Bread the chicken cutlets by coating them in the dry mix on both sides.


Heat about one to two inches oil in a large skillet on high heat. Once the oil is hot, lower the heat to medium and add two to three pieces of chicken at a time.


Fry for about three minutes per side (depending on the thickness of the chicken) or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit (74 degrees Celsius).


Remove the chicken cutlets from the skillet and place them on a baking sheet lined with a wire rack. Sprinkle some of the spice mix onto the chicken while hot.

Prepare the Broccoli Slaw


Mix the first five ingredients in a large bowl.


Add the broccoli slaw and mix again until everything is fully incorporated. Allow to sit for at least 10 minutes before serving.


If you like a creamier slaw, double the dressing recipe but keep the same amount of broccoli mix.


This recipe also works with cabbage.

Prepare the Classic Sandwich Dressing


Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl.


Store in an airtight container in the fridge for five days.

Build Your Own Donut Sandwich


Cut the donut in half (like a bun) and smear the classic dressing on both sides.


Add a few pickles and some fried onions, and top with fried chicken.


Place the broccoli slaw over the chicken and cover with the other half of the donut.
