This post really gave me pause until I saw that Wimpy must be a fast food place. I was wondering why anyone would look for such a recipe. Hope you find it. We don't have Wimpy so I have no idea what it is like.

There used to be Wimpy's all over the UK at one time, pre-McDonalds. They were pretty awful.... I can't remember the last time I saw one, though.

We have Wimpie chains in Houston------a sandwich and sub place. I wonder if they are the same?

ruleworld - have you tried any of the 'take off recipes' websites for the burger?? like Todd Wilbur's site? Shoot, I can't remember the names of his books - they might be in your library also.

I'm not familiar with Wimpy's either, however, a good tip, if you want a really crispy chicken patty, is to purchase chicken breasts, then butterfly them (so you have 2 patties, each quite thin). Then pound them to a very thin patty. Dip in batter & then use a fry daddy to fry. This last method is much better than trying to pan fry, as the oil is much hotter and you can get things extra crispy. Hope this helps!

You might try some of those frozen breaded chicken patties and cook them longer than the box instructions suggest...

sounds good. i make crispy fried chicken in a pressure cooker and they are better than frying pan. i dont use batter however. i dip the chicken into flour, then into egg and again into flour. that worked better for me. hope ur method will work too. thanks.
