Chili's Chicken Ranch Sandwich

My all time favorite restaurant is Chili's. I have come to depend on their amazing queso. While I usually get the nachos there b/c they are covered in queso I sometimes get their Chicken Ranch Sandwich.

What you need
oil for deep frying
½ C flour
½ tsp salt
½ C whole milk
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 hamburger bun
1 leaf green leaf lettuce
2/3 C franks redhot sauce
1/4 C butter, melted
Side of Ranch

How to do it
1. Preheat oil to 350 in a deep fryer or large frying pan over medium heat. Use just enough oil to cover the chicken breast.
2. Stir together the flour and salt in a medium bowl. Pour the milk into another medium bowl
3. Trim the chicken of any fat. Pound on the chick with a meat tenderizing mallet to flatten the breast.
4. Dip the chick in milk, then in flour, being sure to coat the entire surface of the chicken. Take the coated chicken breast and repeat the process. Then deep fry the chicken.
5. As the chicken is frying toast the hamburger buns.
6. When the chicken breast has cooked and drained, place it on a bun. Combine the butter and franks. Pour the hot sauce on the chicken. Then poor ranch on top the hot sauce and then the lettuce and top bun.

*I skip the tomato and add an extra side of ranch.
