For the chicken

Take a dish and prepare the flour by combining it with the salt. Remove the chicken from the brine and pat it dry. Allow it to come up to room temperature. Pour a good amount of oil into a cast-iron skillet to cover the chicken once the meat is placed in the pan. Quickly dredge the chicken in the flour mixture. Shake off the excess oil and lower the chicken into the oil. Do not increase the heat. Make sure to cook three or two pieces of chicken at one time.

Continue frying the chicken for about 10 minutes per side. Once the chicken is golden brown, transfer it to a paper-towel-lined plate to cool before coating it in the spiced oil. Keep two pieces of white bread on each plate. Mix a hot coating mixture onto one side of the chicken. Place the pieces of the chicken spiced side down on the bread keep coating with the hot coating mixture. Serve and enjoy with plenty of pickles.
