Drain the chicken from the buttermilk, dredge in flour mixture and cook in batches for 3 to 5 minutes, turning occasionally or until crisp and chicken is cooked through.

Spread the base of the buns with smoked jalapeno aioli. Top with crisp chicken, butter lettuce, cheese, and pickles.

Tip: Jalapeno aioli can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
