  • 4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup pickle juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 16 pickle chips
  • 2 oz blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 16 Hawaiian buns


  • Slice each of the boneless skinless chicken breasts into 4 tenders.
  • Place the chicken breasts into a ziploc bag or a 13x9 glass pan. Cover with the pickle juice. Place in the refigerator for at least 2 hours.
  • Heat the oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • In one medium sized bowl big enough to dip chicken, mix the 2 eggs and 1 tablespoon of water.
  • In a second bowl, mix the flour, salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  • In a third bowl, mix the panko and parmesan cheese.
  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Dredge a chicken piece in the flour mixture then shake off the excess.
  • Dip into the egg and dunk until covered in egg. Remove with a fork and place into the breadcrumb cheese mixture. Coat completely in the breadcrumbs, patting them in place to make them stick to the chicken.
  • Place onto the prepared baking sheet and repeat with the rest of the chicken.
  • Bake the chicken for 24-30 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F. Pull from the oven and let rest 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, slice the Hawaiian buns in half and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the blue cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  • Place one tender on the bottom sides of each bun. Top with pickles, blue cheese mixture and the rest of the buns. Serve immediately. Enjoy!!
