Chicken Breast:

  • 2 chicken breasts, halved
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp. chilli powder

Breading Station:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups whole wheat breadcrumbs

  • Salt and pepper

Sandwich assembly:

  1. The night before you are making this recipe marinate the chicken breast in a large plastic food storage bag with buttermilk, chili powder, salt and pepper. Place it on a dish and into the fridge overnight.
  2. Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.
  3. In three separate bowls prepare your breading station. One bowl with flour seasoned with salt and pepper, the second bowl with eggs whisked together and seasoned with salt and pepper, and the third bowl with whole wheat breadcrumbs seasoned with salt, pepper and lemon zest.
  4. Remove the chicken breast from the marination and dredge the chicken in the flour, then in the egg then in the breadcrumbs.
  5. Arrange a wired rack over a baking sheet and place the chicken breasts. Cook in the oven 35-40 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  6. Before pulling out the chicken, place the mozzarella cheese over top and melt it for the last 5 minutes.
  7. Assemble the sandwiches by placing the lettuce, chicken and the spicy tomato sauce over top.
