  1. Split and cut each chicken breast in half. 
  2. In a large bowl, add your eggs, buttermilk, Louisiana Hot Sauce, Sriracha sauce, 1/2 tsp black pepper, and 1/2 tsp paprika. Whisk (paid link) until smooth. Place your chicken into the bowl and marinate for 1 hour.
  3. When you’re ready to fry your chicken, heat cooking pan to medium heat and cover the bottom of the pan with an inch of cooking oil.
  4. Add 1 cup of all-purpose flour, cornstarch, and remaining chicken seasonings into a large zip lock bag. Shake to mix. Remove chicken from bowl and add to bag. Coat chicken.
  5. Fry each chicken breast piece for 3 to 4 minutes on each side (depending on the thickness). You’re looking for a crispy golden-brown crust.
  6. For the sauce, add all sauce ingredients into a bowl and whisk (paid link) until smooth. 
  7. Place chicken between Pretzel buns, add tomato and top off with sauce. 


You can slightly toast your bread by adding butter and placing it into a hot buttered pan.
