"From one of my favorite restaurants in Oakland. Grabbed this recipe from muffintop's blog when I got a hankering. Also made this sandwich using fried tilapia. Still good but I found that all I really wanted to eat was the coleslaw filling. Hope you have an appetite cause this is one huge sandwich."

"is there such thing as 14 stars, because that is what bakesale betty's fried chicken sandwich really deserves!"
"Yummy sandwich. Very delicious. More authentic when you cook it at home. Hot and fresh! I had all the ingredients except cayenne and kosher salt. I had sea salt and paprika on hand and it's just as good. The coleslaw was oily-licious messy. I bought a pre-cut coleslaw package at the store. It has julienned carrots in it, which is good too. There was no need to slice up a whole cabbage. Make sure you don't overheat the oil or else it burns quick. I prefer to dip the chicken in the flour mixture once; instead of dipping it twice into the buttermilk. It has a nice light crunch that way. If you dip it twice, that's fine too. It'll just have a thicker batter and lots of crunch to it. I made four sandwiches and gave it to my boyfriend and his friends. They all loved it!! It was delicious. Thank you for the recipe! It's very close to Bakesale Betty's Sandwiches."
"This was absolutely wonderful and authentic to the real Bake Sale Betty's! Now that I live in SF, it's not been so easy to get over to Oakland and wait in the crazy line and try and make their three hour window of openness. This very much hit the mark! Thank you for the great recipe!!!!"
