Yeah, there are spoilers in here …

I think we’re all sad to see it go. Everyone who watches it, falls in love and hate with every character on that goddamned show. Why the hell do we even root for Walter? No one fucking knows. And sometimes we don’t. (Don’t you fuck with my Jesse, Walt!) But we still love him and want to see him succeed. Or do we? Maybe we want Hank to succeed. We definitely want Jesse to come out of this on top. The fuck! How is it going to possibly end?

It’s one of the few shows that has mastered character development and blurs the lines between good and evil. Breaking Bad is the best show ever made, except maybe The Wire. (Family Guy was right.) And it’s because of the characters; the lovable, hateable, adorable, infuriating, incredibly human characters on both of those shows that many of us hold them in such high regard.

So I KNOW you all wanna have a theme party to celebrate the show. Everyone has been making the blue rock candy. And damn it, I wish I had thought of that ages ago, but I didn’t. It’s a definite must for any Breaking Bad theme party. But I’m building the bridge and getting over my river of jealousy. And that bridge, my friends, is made of fried chicken.

TODAY we are making the Los Pollos Hermanos Value Menu, bitches!

A couple sandwiches that Mr. Gus Fring himself would be proud of … if he were still around to enjoy them.

The White household doesn’t do without their breakfast and neither should you. Help yourself to an All-Day Breakfast Chicken and Waffle Sandwich: buttermilk fried chicken cutlet, atop crispy homemade waffles, topped with bacon and drizzle of maple syrup.

Or perhaps you’d like to try the Southwest Chicken and Biscuit Sandwich: Southwest seasoned fried chicken cutlet on cheddar and jalapeño biscuits, topped with avocado, bacon and cheese. New Mexico flair, no matter where you live.

Southwest Chicken and Biscuit Sandwich
(makes 4 sandwiches)

Ingredients

For the biscuits

  • 1/2 can refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and diced
  • For the chicken

    • 4 chicken cutlets, pounded thin
    • 1/2 cup buttermilk
    • 1 egg
    • 1 tbsp sriracha
    • 1 cup flour
    • 1 tsp seasoned salt
    • 1/2 tsp Mexican oregano
    • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
    • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
    • oil for frying

    For the sandwich

    • 4 slices colby jack cheese
    • 4 slices of bacon, cooked up and cut in half
    • 8 avocado slices

    First, biscuit time. Pop that can. Shove 2 tbsp of shredded cheddar and a sprinkle of peppers on a biscuit, then work it into the dough. Shape it back to how it was, maybe a little flatter. Repeat. Cook according to package.

    Second, chicken time. In one bowl, mix your buttermilk, egg and sriracha. In another, mix your flour and seasonings. Dip it in the wet, then dip it in the dry. Dip it in the wet, then dip it in the dry. (Yes, I’m asking you to double-bread them.)

    Preheat your oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Fry each cutlet for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until cooked through and breading is brown and crispy. Set on paper towels to drain the oil.

    Third, construction time. Slice your biscuits in half. Biscuit, chicken, cheese, bacon, avocado, biscuit.

    A chicken and biscuit sandwich so good, it’ll blow your face off.

    All-Day Breakfast Chicken and Waffle Sandwich
    (makes 4 sandwiches)

    Ingredients

    For the waffles

    • 4 servings of waffle mix (or frozen if you don’t have a waffle maker)

    For the chicken

    • 8 chicken tenders, pounded thin
    • 1/2 cup buttermilk
    • 1 egg
    • 1 cup flour
    • 1 tsp seasoned salt
    • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
    • oil for frying

    For the sandwich

    • syrup
    • 4 slices of bacon cooked up and cut in half

    Make your waffles according to the package directions.

    In one bowl, mix your buttermilk and egg. In another, mix your flour and seasonings. Coat them with the buttermilk, followed by the flour mixture, back into the buttermilk, back into the flour mixture.

    Preheat your oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Fry each cutlet for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until cooked through and breading is brown and crispy. Set on paper towels to drain the oil.

    Assemble your sandwiches. Half a waffle, 2 tenders, bacon, a healthy drizzle of syrup, the other half of your waffle. Serve alongside a little cuplet of syrup for dipping, if desired.
