    Popeyes chicken tenders made me think of corn flakes or crackers. I’ve always used peanut oil. Is there any reason canola oil is better ?

  • herrdoktorprofessor on April 28, 2021

    use boneless chicken thighs instead

  • Rod Farva on April 29, 2021

    who else was drooling during the eating shots at the end?

    Popeyes has better chicken for Chick-fil-A has the sauce

  • Janet Gerney on May 10, 2021

    Yeah, I'd add some finely crushed cornnflakes to the coating, and maybe a bit more cornstarch.

    thanks C J popeyes chicken is the best…chick fila did not compare for me…costco has breasts like these…i won't do these as a sandwich…

  • McCallos One on May 22, 2021

    Mayo. Travesty.

  • Josh Gamble on May 23, 2021

    I am not a super big fan of egg wash for some foods like chicken. I worked at a seafood restaurant for the summer a few years ago and got some good recipes. Their main dredge was flour, evaporated milk, and cracker crumb. I defy you to find a better coating for seafood for maximum crunch and adhesion. Anyway, I like buttermilk for the marinade, but try evaporated milk for the wash and you won't have the problem of crust separating from the protein no matter what you fry.

  • PHilip KErshaw on May 25, 2021

    Love chef John’s recipes and his style of presenting the channel.

  • kill woke on May 28, 2021

    can i use olive oil for frying?

  • Chef Jeff on May 28, 2021

    Somebody may have mistook a cornflake for what those in the Industry call, Cellulose-Filler. Whaaa Whaaa

  • Hugh-John Fleming on May 31, 2021

    Ranch? No. Pickle "Juice?" Yes. Pound them flattish and let soak overnight or all day at least. Always double dip… Alabama recipe.

  • Esteban Rincon on June 2, 2021

    Why are you speaking high and low n every sentence?

  • Tony Musolino on June 2, 2021

    Corn flakes are sweet. What I believe Popeyes uses are plain bran flakes. It’s what I use for my fried chicken.
    I marinate my chicken parts for 2 days in …whole milk, plain Greek yogurt, and my spices. Then, I rinse it off, and pat it dry.
    Then I roll my chicken in Mayo, then I roll them in bran flakes, and then I bake them at 375 for about an hour or so. Depends on how much chicken your baking.
    Tastes like amazing fried chicken.you’re welcome.👍🏼

  • judy millendez on June 3, 2021

    I thought MSG is unsafe?

  • Bob L on June 8, 2021

    It is best, prior to marinating, to slightly butterfly the thick part of a large chicken breast and then to lightly pound it.

  • Stephen FitzGerald on June 9, 2021

    Let's call it the Chef John Deliciuis Crunch Superb Chicken Sandwich! Looks and sounds really awesomely delicious!

  • j on June 16, 2021

    You don’t beat the chicken before breading?

  • attila fitzpatrick on June 26, 2021

    Chef ya slipped in the poles touting MSG. Personally I avoid it like Covid.

  • Cheap Sneakers on June 28, 2021

    Let’s get some pickle juice up in that marinade!!!

  • Deusneuff Neff on July 2, 2021

    I’m in love with you

  • Deusneuff Neff on July 2, 2021

    I would set you as my background if my gf wasn’t so jealous all the time

  • BytomGirl on July 13, 2021

    MSG? No, thanks!

  • GirthFromBirth on July 14, 2021

    Wheres the sauce?

  • MarcellinoDaDon on July 15, 2021

    …i would have cut each chicken breast in half and then pounded them more even + flat… that would solve the meat/breading ratio…and you can make four sandwiches instead of two…

    awesome video!…

  • Thomas Stone on July 15, 2021

    Not gonna give you a thumbs down but MSG is an issue with me. Thank you for pointing out that some valleys put it in their dresses. Won't buy their clothes anymore. kinda surprised you went all out that way, but I still love watching and getting ideas. you got a lot of good stuff. TY

  • Leadene Baker on July 25, 2021

    Sorry Chef, I think the chicken breast were too thick. 🙂

  • wonderdude32 on August 14, 2021

    Pickle brine the chicken for Chicfila taste. Peanut oil is the key for Popeye's texture.

  • Chan Fonseka on August 17, 2021

    7:12 Chef John eats the chicken sandwich UPSIDE DOWN 🙂

  • MASTERoQUADEMAN on August 19, 2021

    The way he talks…. I’ve heard it before. What’s that about? It’s not so much an accent, it’s the change of tone.

  • Lydia Dillard on August 20, 2021

    Not sure where the low prices are! MSG yes.

  • Brandeeno999 on August 30, 2021

    Could you copy this recipe bur air fry instead?

  • C. H. Dean on September 18, 2021


  • Cristal W on October 5, 2021

    Breading has panko and the batter is missing dill

  • Indialantic Rob on October 12, 2021

    Marinate in pickle juice with this recipe is incredible too. Thanks Chef another good one !

  • Cheryl R Leigh on October 25, 2021

    I suspect they meant cornstarch v cornflakes. 😂😂😂

  • XavierKatzone on October 26, 2021

    This turned out excellent! ❤️ BUT I have two Qs:
    1 Why is your filet so RED? I put a good chug of Cholula in, but I'd have to load it with annatto powder to turn it anywhere near that red!
    2 In this video you suggest that you've eaten many Popeye's chicken sandwiches, and then compare the end result with Chick-Fil-A. But in the linked blog you say you've never been to Popeye's and only had Chick-fil-A once. So which is it, John? 🥴 Witness:
    "In the spirit of full disclosure, I’ve never had a Popeye’s fried chicken sandwich, but since I’m so familiar with their work, I thought I could figured out a decent copycat version of their very hard to get sandwich anyway. Which I sort of did, as far as the taste of the chicken goes, but texturally, I ended up with something much closer to Chick-fil-A, which by the way, I’ve been to exactly once."

    @chefjohn @foodwishes Is there an alternative to using egg in the wash? This is for a fan who is allergic to eggs.

  • Terry Thompson on December 27, 2021

    I am going to make this, this weekend ! 🤪 MSG is addictive
