Lets start with our ingredients
- 2 1/2 12oz bottle of Fat Tire Amber Ale beer
- 3 cups of all purpose flour (unbleached)
- 2 TBLS salt
- 3 TBLS paprika
- 1 TBLS dill weed
- 3 TBLS garlic
- 2 TBLS cayenne

- 1 cup mayo

- 2 TBLS chopped garlic
- 1 LBS boneless skinless chicken tenderloins, cut in half long way

Place flour, and seasonings in a large bowl and mix well. Heat shortening to 300 degrees, just before the shortening comes to temperature, slowly whisk in the beer until consistent. Blacken the chicken cutlets and toss in plain flour; then dip chicken in beer batter. Be sure to allow excess batter to drip off - yet make sure the cutlet is fully covered.
Fry chicken for 6-7 minutes or until golden brown. As the chicken is cooking, place butter in a sauté pan and melt on medium heat. When butter is melted roll buns in butter and sprinkle granulated garlic - covering consistently.
Pull chicken out of fryer, and place on a plate lined with paper towels to the drain excess oil off.
Mix 1 cup of mayo, chopped bacon, and minced garlic.
Line the bun with aioli, add shredded lettuce, then add one chicken Tender cut in half on the bias.
