The Best F&$king Grilled Chicken Sandwich Ever

Lettuce too green, would not eat. Chicken too fresh, would not eat. I will take my great-grandmother`s recipe for Chicken Sandwich that she got when she translated the scrawl off the wall of an Egyptian tomb and brought over by sailboat. That is what a Chicken Sandwich is supposed to be about. I have been making Chicken Sandwiches since birth so I have no idea why I even read this article or any recipe on SeriousEats. I would share my secrets, but granny took a blood oath not to share with anyone else. I will say it uses Chicken though.

I wish I had an eyeroll icon I could use for every negative comment from people who haven`t even made the recipe.


Daniel Gritzer is becoming a top contributor quickly in my eyes on this site. He is up there so far with Kenji and Yvonne and I look forward to making his recipes! Good job Daniel, keep up the great work!

The Best F&$king Grilled Chicken Sandwich Ever

@ Kiefster

What are you talking about "healthy"? There is no such thing as a good food or bad food. So what, there is a lot of mayo on the sandwich, its not like its going to put you over your caloric limit by eating just one sandwich or two of these for that matter. Furthermore, you could use less mayo (no idea why you would want to do that) if you must.

It all boils down to calories in calories out in the end. No such thing as a good or a bad food. I could eat this chicken sandwich everyday with the mayo if I wanted and remain in single digit body fat like I do.

Kenji and Yvonne are the best! Another perfect recipe in the books! Thanks again for all of your hard work. I really appreciate all that you guys do.

Chicken, Leek, and Mushroom Strata

@rmmarcus, how would you gain 10 lbs let alone 1 (of fat) if you ate the entire thing? You wouldn`t. You would have to effectively store 3500 calories for one pound of fat to be gained, meaning you would have to be in a caloric surplus of your Total caloric energy expenditure plus 3500 calories in order to gain one pound of fat. So in effect, you could eat the entire 9X13 and you probably would not gain a pound of fat. Water weight maybe as you will retain water if you are not drinking enough-water in water out. However, to suggest you are going to gain "10 lbs" is just ludicrous. Here is a picture of me for reference, I do know what I am talking about- http://www.getbig.com/boards/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=329841.0;attach=373715;image

I bet Kenji can perfect that.

The Food Lab: Maximize Flavor by Ultra-Smashing Your Burger

Kenji, this is just awesome! Also, have you ever tried smashing your burger, then just cooking it with your blow torch, flip, then torch the other side? Just curious. Keep up the awesome work!

Ultra-Smashed Cheeseburgers

This is going to be made today!

Quick One Pot Hungarian Chicken and Noodles With Cabbage

Yvonne, If we were making this with Bacon, would we just substitute a pound of bacon for a lb of chicken? Would you recommend more noodles if using bacon? How would you go about doing it?

Quick One Pot Hungarian Chicken and Noodles With Cabbage

Hmmm, I may have to make this with the bacon. I do like the sound of that. So just substitute the ground chicken for bacon you Hungarians say eh?

@adgxv2000
Are you serious? Are you really pincing over a few minutes here and there? Its really not that consequential. Do you wear a stopwatch around your neck and run around the kitchen having a meltdown if you are 2 minutes over the suggested cooking time? I bet you are fun to cook with.

Quick and Easy One Pot Hungarian Chicken and Noodles With Cabbage

Definitely going to make this!

Really Awesome Black Bean Burgers

Why do people keep asking for a Vegan version? What the hell is this then if its not vegan? I don`t see any meat?

From the Archives: The World's Easiest Doughnuts

Kenji, are you some sort of wizard or mind reader? I searched for this recipe on this site two days ago and now you bump it to the top. Interesting coincidence!

I made these when they first appeared and ate all of them within 24 hours. Probably will do the same on my high calorie day!

Obesity Theories, Milk Controversy, and More in Food Policy This Week

Total bullshit. The only thing that makes anyone fat is being in a caloric surplus longer than at maintenance level or in a deficit. I stay in single digit bodyfat year round with veins in my abs and I eat whatever the hell I want. I just know my caloric limits. I also sometimes drink upwards of 7-12 diet Pepsi Max a day and guess what, I still have abs as sharp as diamonds.

I love how overcomplicated food has become. Morons.

Tasting Report: Everything You Need to Know About Dominique Ansel's Milk and Cookie Shot

Oh I see, so its a gimmick. I imagine you could shape Kenji`s cookies into a shot glass, bake them, brush the inside with Chocolate Ganache or what have you and fill it with milk. Or you could just eat a cookie and have a glass of milk and get the same effect. ROFLMAO!!!

Tasting Report: Everything You Need to Know About Dominique Ansel's Milk and Cookie Shot

Why not just bake your own cookies, (use Kenji`s recipe), and take sips of milk from a glass between bites?

Whats the difference?

One Bowl Baking: Bourbon Street Banana Crisp

Making this again this week. Don`t forget your Vanilla Ice Cream with it! Love this dessert.

One Bowl Baking: Bourbon Street Banana Crisp

One of the best and easiest desserts I have ever made. This is going to be a staple. The streusel topping is a perfect texture for the soft bananas in the caramelized bourbon sauce. The salty note really brings out the flavor. This is quite impressive and I await Yvonne`s next creation! Everyone needs to try this recipe!

James Villas-Glory of Southern Cooking-Key Lime Recipe is a Fail

So, I figured I`d make a Key Lime Pie using The Key Lime Pie recipe from The Glory of Southern Cooking by James Villas. I read through it and thought it sounded kind of strange as if it wouldn`t work, but I figured I may as well follow the recipe as it was written. Absolutely horrible.

1. Graham Cracker Crust was a joke-Never was cohesive, WAY too many Graham Crackers and had a WHOLE CUP of sugar whereas most had 2-3 tablespoons at most. It was an overflowing non-cohesive powdery mess.
2. The filling had one cup of Lime Juice, most have 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup.
3. There was a tablespoon of lime zest, whereas most had one teaspoon or 1 and a half teaspoons at most.
4. The cooking time of 10 minutes is a joke. Nothing happens in that time frame.

This was absolutely horrible. Here is a direct link to the recipe so you can see what I am talking about. I want to write him and tell him how horrible his recipe is and that it could NEVER work. To think he is a James Beard award winner. What a joke. Anyone have any similar stories?

Ask The Food Lab: Can I Stir-Fry On An Electric Cooktop?

"I am an avid teen food who adores her asian dishes, especially the creativity of stir fry. Now, I make it all the time but know that my end result could be exceptionally better. You had on the blog about doing the perfect stir fry on the grill but unfortunately I am in a college dorm and only have access to an electric stove. My question is: how does one not steam their vegetables while at the same time not use too much oil AND how do you not burn your corn starch sauce to the pan?" More

The Pizza Lab: Three Doughs to Know

We've gone through a lot of pizza styles and recipes here at The Pizza Lab, but I still often get asked "what's the best pizza crust recipe you know?" When I'm in the mood to fire up the grill or heat up the broiler, I might take my time and make a Neapolitan-style lean dough. If I want to relive my childhood without stepping out my apartment door, it's a New York-style. Company coming over and I want to feed a crowd without messing up the kitchen? It's Sicilian-style square pie all the way. Here's a brief run-down on the three recipes that every home pie-maker should have in their arsenal to tackle all manner of pizza-centric circumstances.

The Food Lab: How to Roast Fall and Winter Vegetables

You can roast vegetables the easy way: just toss everything with oil, throw them on a rimmed baking sheet, and roast in a hot oven until tender. I do that often when I'm not feeling up to specialized treatment. But to get the most out of your roasted vegetables, it helps to understand each one's special characteristics. What they are, where you want them to go, and how to take them there. More
