Gameday Goods: Hash Brown Chicken Sandwich
It’s the first Friday of the month, which means it’s time for another Gameday Goods recipe. Our mad scientists have concocted a good one this month: a hash brown chicken sandwich. Remember, Vikings fans cannot live on wins alone, so it’s probably best to give this recipe a try.
- Hash browns
- Chicken strips
- Cheese slices
- Hot sauce
Step 1: Get the Oven Heating
Set your oven to 425 F (or whatever the package calls for to cook your hash browns). Make sure you apply some non-stick spray. Toss on your hash browns and then your chicken strips. Our chicken strips cook a fair bit faster, which is part of the plan. We’re going to pull them out early so we can toss in our hot sauce.
Step 2: Prepare Butter
In a small frying pan, gently melt some butter. Adding a little oil to help the butter avoid burninating is often a wise plan (just watch Sam the Cooking Guy’s vids; he does this often). When the butter is melted, add in some crushed garlic1 and a teaspoon of oregano. There are very few things in our world that are worsened by a butter-garlic-oregano mix.
At some point in this process, you can add in the sliced jalapenos2 if you’re looking to soften them before adding to your sandwich.
Step 3: Toss Chicken Strips in Hot Sauce
Remove the softened jalapenos and set aside. When the H-Browns are mostly cooked, paint some of the butter-garlic-oregano mix onto your hash browns. Not only will this add flavor, it’ll also help them get very crispy.
Remove the chicken strips once cooked and crispy. Add in hot sauce to your butter mix and stir to combine. Once combined, add in your chicken strips and coat.
Step 4: Assemble Sandwich in Oven
It’s time to assemble the sandwich. See photo. As you can see, we allowed the cheese to get melted. Toss the remaining sauce in a small dish (as per the main photo at the top) so you can dip your sandwich.
Give it a shot, folks. The hash brown chicken sandwich is incredibly delicious.

1) This is the garlic press we use. We like it because it’s quite sturdy and can press out garlic with relative ease. It’s also relatively easy to clean.
2) We purchased this knife a little while ago and haven’t been disappointed. We have nicknamed it Sting in honor of Frodo’s small, yet useful sword. So far, we haven’t killed any orcs.
