Instructions
  1. Buttermilk Fried Chicken: Soak the chicken breast in buttermilk, cayenne pepper, garlic salt, pepper and hot sauce for 8-10 hours or over night.
  2. Preheat skillet with about 1 inch deep of vegetable oil. Remove the chicken from the buttermilk and place on a plate. Preheat oven to 350°. In a bowl combine the flour, bread crumbs, granulated garlic, paprika, and pepper. Coat chicken with flour mixture. Shake off excess.
  3. Fry the chicken in small batches for 3 minutes on each side. Transfer the chicken to wire rack, set inside of a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes on 350°.
  4. To assemble sliders: Cut each pretzel slider in half and toast them lightly. Place a piece of chicken on each slider. Top with a slice of provolone cheese. Drizzle with 1-2 tablespoons buffalo sauce. Top with lettuce and tomatoes, the onion ring and the remaining bun. Serve immediately.
