**Note: The beauty of cannabis-infused edibles is that the options for infusing and medicating are nearly endless! For example, I used a mixture of concentrated cannabis-infused olive oil, cannabis-infused Ghee, and some cannabis-infused Zesty Ranch Seasoning for an extra flavor boost in the friend chicken. You can even choose to utilize your own homemade canna-butter if you so desire! As always, using a dosage calculator before cooking helps you by confidently anticipating your results and dosage. *Check out our online ordering menu for cannabis-infused cooking spcies and ingredients to bring your medicated meals a notch higher (;*

Step 1: Prepare Your Chicken

Preheat your oven to 350°F to prepare for toasting the sub rolls. Cut your chicken breasts in half lengthwise, and pound them thin.

On one plate, add a 50/50 mixture of seasoned breadcrumbs and shredded parmesan cheese. On another plate, add all-purpose flour. Add seasonings to taste to your breadcrumbs and flour. Here, I added some of Leafology’s Zesty Ranch Seasoning which we had for sale, for a little extra pizazz. In addition to the ranch seasoning, I added some lemon pepper, poultry seasoning, paprika, and garlic powder.

Whisk 2 eggs in a small bowl for dredging.

Step 2: Fry Your Chicken

Coat your thinly pounded chicken breasts first in your seasoned flour, then the egg wash, and finally your breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese mixture. Be mindful in coating all sides of your chicken, pressing the seasonings firmly in place if needed.

Once your chicken breasts are breaded, add some canola or vegetable oil and 2 tablespoons of butter into a wok or large frying pan, and heat to medium-high. The oil and butter mixture helps to create a beautiful golden-brown crisp in the frying process. Here I used cannabis-infused Ghee, which is a wonderful alternative to butter.

Fry each chicken breast for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until crispy and light brown.

Step 3: Prepare Your Caesar Salad

Rinse, dry, and chop your romaine lettuce, and place in a large mixing bowl. Add shredded parmesan, lots of freshly ground black pepper, and pour in your favorite Caesar dressing. –I just use store-bought dressing, but if you’d like to make or use your own Caeser dressing, then by all means!

Step 4: Prepare Your Sub Rolls

For the toasted sub rolls, melt butter in a small dish, and add olive oil, black pepper, herbs/spices of your liking, and some parmesan cheese. Take your silicone basting brush, and brush the inside and the outside of your rolls. Here, I used my own cannabis-infused olive oil, and some more of the cannabis-infused Ghee.

Place buttered rolls on a baking sheet, and into your preheated oven. (I like to line my sheets with foil for easy cleanup and use a baking sheet with a wire rack for all-over toasting). Warm/toast rolls in the oven for about 5 minutes or until toasted golden.

Step 4: Build Your Sub

Once your rolls are nicely toasted, it is time to assemble your sub sandwiches. Simply place a chicken cutlet on a toasted roll, top with your Ceasar salad, and enjoy!! (:

Cooking with Cannabis-Infused Ingredients

A good starting point for ingesting cannabis edibles is to limit yourself to <5mg THC ; even less if you are new to THC-infused food. They can be stronger and more intense, differing drastically from smoking. For one, the effects can take anywhere from a half hour to 3 hours to fully metabolize, depending on an individual’s unique body and metabolic rate. In addition, because the THC is digested through your liver and can more readily cross the body’s blood-brain barrier, the high can be stronger and last longer. With that said, your edible’s potency depends on many factors: How it was prepared, the potency of your starting product, and considering the strain or concentrate’s cannabinoid and terpene concentrations. To test the potency and effect of your finished product, try a smaller amount (<5mg) and see how that dose affects you after 2-3 hours. Titrate your dose as desired, and use this personalized “standard” dose as a baseline for your recipes.
