Recipe Instructions

McChicken Sauce: Stir ingredients together well, refrigerate until needed.

Preparing your McChicken Sandwich: Beat the egg and then combine it with 1 cup water in a small, shallow bowl. Stir.

Combine the flour, salt, pepper, Accent, onion powder and garlic powder in a one gallon size zip lock bag.

Pound each of the breast filets with a mallet until about 1/4-inch thick. Trim each breast filet until it is round. Coat each filet with the flour mixture by shaking in the zip lock bag. Remove and dredge each filet in the egg mixture, coating well.

Return each filet to the flour/seasoning mixture. Shake to coat. Put filets, bag and all, in the freezer for at least an hour. Cover and refrigerate remaining egg mixture. After freezing, repeat the "coating" process.

Deep fry the chicken filets at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until light brown and crispy. As the chicken is frying, toast the buns.

On the crown side of the bun, apply 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise mixture, followed by 1/4 cup chopped iceberg lettuce. Then top with the cooked chicken patty, and the heel of the bun. Wrap tightly in a 12- by 16-inch piece of waxed paper, and let stand 6 to 8 minutes.

Microwave on high, individually, for 15 seconds and serve.

This recipe yields 4 sandwiches.
