I’m so excited to share these selfmade Spicy Rooster Sandwiches with you. A spicy rooster sandwich is my favourite factor to order at a quick meals restaurant, so I used to be a bit skeptical that I might love a lightened up model simply as a lot. I’m telling you straight up, this sandwich is it. Juicy rooster breast in a spicy, crispy coating with a tasty creamy sauce, served with candy, juicy tomatoes and contemporary lettuce on a tasty sandwich roll. I might fortunately eat these on daily basis and by no means guess that they have been solely 342 energy or between 7-10 WW PersonalPoints (relying on whether or not you may have rooster breast as a zero level meals).

In my view, these Spicy Rooster Sandwiches have the proper quantity of spice. Each the rooster and the sauce have a very good kick however positively aren’t overwhelmingly scorching. The crumb coating on the rooster has three layers of taste, with spice within the flour, egg dip, and bread crumb combination! The creamy French onion dip soothes the warmth of the wing sauce within the topping for the proper mixture of flavors. I completely advocate making these sandwiches as written, but when spice isn’t for you there are a number of simple changes you can also make to your style. The paprika within the flour and wing sauce within the egg whites and sandwich sauce can all be ignored based mostly in your preferences.
Air Fryer or Oven?
I’ve made the rooster for these Spicy Rooster Sandwiches in my air fryer and in my oven and supplied route for each within the recipe directions under. You probably have each choices accessible, I like to recommend cooking the rooster in your air fryer as a result of the surface will get crispier, which I favor. When you don’t have an air fryer, the oven continues to be an incredible choice and can make scrumptious rooster to your Spicy Rooster Sandwich.
Do I must pre-heat my air fryer?
I’ve seen plenty of combined details about this. Some sources say you completely should pre-heat your air fryer and a few say you needn’t hassle. I believe it most likely depends upon the model of air fryer you personal, so chances are you’ll wish to examine your handbook. I’ve a COSORI model air fryer and don’t pre-heat for this recipe. I see that Philips (one other fashionable model) additionally says you don’t must pre-heat. When you’re unsure about your specific mannequin, be happy to only run it for a couple of minutes earlier than you add the rooster to make sure.
Ingredient Notes and Substitutions
- Sandwich Rolls: I used Costanzo’s Traditional White Small Sandwich Rolls that are a neighborhood model I purchase at Wegmans. These rolls are 130 energy or 4 WW PersonalPoints every and so they’re scrumptious. Many sandwich rolls and hamburger buns have related diet stats, although you possibly can positively use a lightweight bun in the event you favor to spend much less energy/factors on the bread a part of the sandwich. Schmidt 647 sandwich rolls, for instance, are 80 energy or 2 WW PersonalPoints. I like my Costanzo’s rolls with this, however be happy to save lots of a pair factors or some energy and go along with a lighter bun.
- Sauce: Belief me, you’ll want to attempt mixing French onion dip and Buffalo wing sauce. I put that combo on every little thing. I take advantage of it as a salad dressing, dipping sauce, and sandwich topping. It’s so good. I at all times purchase Bison Dip which is a neighborhood Buffalo model, however Heluva Good may also work nice, and I’m certain different manufacturers as nicely. It’s also possible to sub ranch or blue cheese dressing in the event you favor.
- Bread Crumbs: I like the flavour and shade that cornflake crumbs convey to this recipe! Yow will discover Kellogg’s Corn Flakes Crumbs in a field by the opposite breadcrumbs, there’s no must grind up your personal cornflakes. When you’re not into cornflake crumbs or simply don’t have any readily available you possibly can positively use plain panko bread crumbs as a substitute.
Thinly lower rooster cutlets are offered within the meat part of most grocery shops, so positively be happy to only seize these for this recipe. I typically purchase massive bulk packs of boneless, skinless rooster breasts at my grocery retailer after which use kitchen shears to trim them down into the styles and sizes I take advantage of ceaselessly in recipes. It’s cheaper to purchase the breasts in bulk and since I take advantage of rooster breasts so much in my recipes it is sensible for me! I typically lower the large rooster breasts widthwise into cutlets (often 4 oz – 6 oz every) like those used on this recipe. Any rooster that’s lower off to make these I then lower into small chunks to make rooster bites. It’s simple to weigh out 1 lb or extra of rooster chunks or tenders and a few 4, 5, or 6 oz cutlets and freeze them for later in quart dimension freezer baggage. That manner, I at all times have some cutlets and a few rooster bites readily available to make use of in my recipes!
