There are 4 steps to this recipe: the fried chicken, the mayo, the slaw and the hot honey. To begin, start to prep everything. Mix your chicken with the marinade, slice and mix your dill pickle mayo, heat up your hot honey and mix together all the ingredients for the slaw, set aside.

To make your hot honey, heat a small pan with your honey and chiles. Let come to a simmer and turn off heat, set aside.

Next, heat a deep pan with vegetable oil and let it get hot. Take your chicken thighs and dredge them in your beaten eggs and then flour. Shake off the excess and fry in your hot oil until the chicken is cooked through and the outside is crispy, about 10-15 minutes.

Let cool and top with salt and drizzle on your hot honey.

Assemble your fried chicken sandwiches by placing on your mayo sauce, slice of tomato (optional), your slaw, fried chicken and cover with the top bun.
