Chicken sandwich at home

2020 has caused us to do a lot of things we wouldn’t typically do, like cook everything at home.

I have loved every minute of experimenting in the kitchen and trying to develop new recipes!

So I keep seeing these advertisements for Popeyes chicken sandwich and you know the controversy that surrounds that don’t you?

Guess what I have never tried a popeyes chicken sandwich…gasp!!! I know it is crazy isn’t it, sadly we don’t have a Popeyes close to us.

I began looking for recipes for chicken batter and decided to give this one a try of course I made it my own
