To make fried green tomatoes:
Heat oil to cover tomatoes to 350 F in a heavy bottom skillet. Season tomato slices with salt and pepper. In a bowl add flour and panko and season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and cayenne. In another bowl beat eggs with salt and pepper. Dredge tomatoes slices in egg, then flour and panko mixture. Fry for 2-3 minutes and drain on paper towels.
Take your toast bread and spread remoulade evenly on both sides of bread, add fried green tomatoes and pulled chicken. Serve hot and enjoy!
Note: Use two forks to pull your chicken to have great shredded chicken. You can use any protein or vegetable you like to make this sandwich yours.
