As you already know that this po boy sandwich is like staple food of Louisiana but now worldwide very popular for its super tasty function. Sadly, if you want to have this chicken sandwich, you cannot order it to any nearby restaurants. So what to do now? Do you want to seat at home and with a sad face? The answer is obviously no. And, we are here to help you with your chicken po boy sandwich. Grab the ingredients and let’s go for the dish without thinking twice.


  • 1 bowl chopped chicken (cubic sized) 
  • 1 1/5 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 tablespoon hot tomato sauce
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tablespoon salt
  • Oil for frying
  • 1 French bread (baguette-shaped)
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 4 slices of tomato
  • 8 dill pickle chips
  • 1/2 cup lettuce
  • Salt to taste


Step 1: At first, wash the chopped chicken well then place them in a bowl that can be sealed afterward. Put the chicken into the bowl for marinating. To marinate the chicken, take half of the buttermilk including hot tomato sauce. Whisk the mixture well so that the buttermilk and hot tomato sauce can stick up like coat with chickens. Let me suggest you something, if you want the marinated chicken best, then in a fridge marinate it for 2 days. This is a secret tip that every restaurant follows.

Step 2: After 2 days or less, when you think you want to make the sandwich, take a casserole dish and mix up the flour and salt. There is no special flour or salt, just use what you usually use in other dishes. Stir the flour-salt mixture with a whisk.

Step 3: Take a frying pan and heat it up with oil to 260 degrees F. It is better to use an induction oven for this. By this time, pour 1 cup buttermilk into a bowl. The crispy texture is ready.

Step 4: Uncovering the marinated chicken, you have to follow three steps. 

  1. Dig up the marinated chicken mixture into the flour mix
  2. Then dip them into the bowl of buttermilk
  3. Again, dredge them back into the flour mix

Don’t mess up with this process cause this process makes your chicken crunchy and crispy outside. Swipe up the extra coating from the chicken. Now, place them carefully into the hot oil. Cook it for 3/4 minutes. You can see the golden brownish color and crispiness of the chicken. Your chicken is ready. Take a tray and place a towel or kitchen tissue before the chicken is put there. Kitchen tissue will soak extra oil from your chicken.

Step 5: Have the French bread and cut almost two-third of the upper part of the bread and spread with mayonnaise and hot tomato sauce. If you want, then you can mix the mayo and sauce in a cup too. Anyways, cover the gap with lettuce, then place the sliced tomatoes over it, afterwards, keep pickle chips and lastly the chicken. Sprinkle some garlic sauce on your homemade chicken po boy sandwich. 

Enjoy your meal and point to be noted that you have learned how to make po so easily.
