Ingredients

2 Sanderson Farms® Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Fillets , sliced in half horizontally to create 4 fillets, then cut each fillet at an angle to create 2 fillets for a total of 8 fillets

2 eggs

3 teaspoons seasoning salt, divided

3/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided

1/2 cup of all-purpose flour

30 saltine crackers, crushed

3 Tablespoons potato flakes

6 cups vegetable oil

4 (5-inch) po boy buns

3 Tablespoons honey mustard

8 slices of Swiss cheese

4 slices of Black Forest ham

Directions

1. In a large bowl mix eggs, 1 teaspoon seasoning salt and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Set aside.

2. In a separate bowl combine flour, crackers, potato flakes, 2 teaspoons seasoning salt, and ½ teaspoon black pepper. Set aside.

3. Place oil in a large Dutch oven and heat to 325°F.

4. Place chicken fillets between two sheets of plastic wrap. Using the flat side of a meat mallet, flatten the thick end of the fillets to ½-inch thickness.

5. Dip chicken in the egg mixture and coat with the seasoned flour mixture. Shake off any excess and transfer to a plate.

6. Fry chicken in two batches for 3 minutes on each side. The chicken should reach an internal temperature of 165°F. Set aside.

7. Heat oven to broil.

8. Place opened buns on a baking sheet. Spread mustard on both sides and top each side with a slice of cheese. Place ham on the bottom bun and broil for 1 minute or until the cheese melts.

9. Remove from the oven and place chicken on top of ham and top with bun. Serve.

10. TIP: Don't have a mallet to flatten your chicken? Try a rolling pin!
