Fried Chicken Hot Shot

The  fried chicken  hot  shot is a variation of some Hot Shot  Manhattan sandwiches I have done before. They  are perfect comfort  food, especially as a small plate supper.

This  particular recipe  was  made  with  fried chicken breast cut  off the  bone and piled  on soft white  bread with  mashed and gravy. I  used  restaurant leftovers  in this, as we never manage to finish a “bucket” and rewarmed in the  air fryer makes for a quick lunch. But  you can also make this with your own fried chicken. Or  for a quick twist you can bake  up frozen breaded chicken cutlets.

You  can also  use premade mashed and  gravy or I have some recipes  to help  you along for mashed potatoes and turkey  gravy (which can also  be  done as chicken).

But the  idea is to not make too much of  a production  out  of  it,  since it is supposed to  be comforting. And that also requires it to be easy  in my book.
