People wait in long lines for this crispy chicken sandwich – so why not learn how to make it yourself?
There’s always something delicious being served on ABC’s The Chew. For the episode that aired on Wednesday, January 16th 2013, a stand-out item was Bakesale Betty’s Buttermilk Fried Chicken.
Chew Correspondent Jamika Pessoa takes a trip to Oakland, California to sample the ultimate fried chicken sandwich at Bakesale Betty. The mastermind behind the operation is Bakesale Betty, herself, who got her start selling a variety of baked goods at farmers’ markets. Now her infamous shop has but one option on the menu: The Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich, and Bakesale Betty proves that one option is more than enough. On a daily basis, eager sandwich eaters stand in a line that trails the neighboring shops, and now you, too, can have a taste of these over-the-top sandwiches without traveling all the way to the west coast.
Can you believe the restaurant only serves one item? In the episode, we saw a long line outside of the shop, meaning that this has been heartily endorsed by plenty of people.
Find the recipe: HERE. (The double coating of flour, along with the buttermilk is what makes this fried chicken recipe really stand out.) A tip is to buy a bag of cabbage/coleslaw mix to save on time.
