Those of you that know me know that I have been a fan of the Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul TV series since they started.

One of the protagonists on the shows is a character name Gus Fring. Gus, among other things, has a chain of chicken restaurants named Los Pollos Hermanos.

This is a rendition of the chicken that was described in the show as “Your chicken, it’s so…zesty. Piquant.”

8 Boneless chicken breasts
2 eggs
1/4 cup sriracha
5 tablespoons chili powder
3 tablespoons cumin
3 tablespoons cayenne pepper
3 tablespoons crushed red pepper
3 cups flour

Mix chili powder, cumin, cayenne pepper and red pepper with 2/3 cup flour.

Mix sriracha with eggs.

Dip breast in egg, then in flour then cover in pepper/flour mix.

Preheat oven at 375°.

Cook for 25 minutes. Carefully turn and cook for an additional 15-20 minutes.

Enjoy with a side of red beans and rice, fries, or biscuits and gravy.
