You only live once Chicken Burger
Who wants to add a delicious homemade burger to the cooking repertoire?
This chicken burger is not for the clean eating fans out there! This recipe is indulgent, and it's jam-packed with deliciousness to boot.
It’s the kind of chicken burger that you dream about…
What you’ll need:
4 skinless chicken breasts
350ml of buttermilk
100g plain flour
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp smoked paprika
2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp garlic powder or granules
Vegetable oil for frying
6 tbsp of hot chipotle sauce, mixed with 1 tbsp mayonnaise
4 halved and toasted brioche or seeded buns
6 tbsp guacamole
1/4, shredded iceberg lettuce
8 rashers, cooked until crisp smoked streaky bacon
Lay each chicken breast between 2 pieces of cling wrap and bash with a rolling pin until 2cm thick.
Add to a bowl with the buttermilk, cover and chill for at least 2 hours but preferably overnight.
Mix the flour, oregano, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder and some seasoning on a large plate.
Remove the chicken pieces from the buttermilk and dredge in the seasoned flour, shaking off any excess.
Fill a large pan no more than a third full with vegetable oil and heat to 175C or until a piece of bread browns in 40 seconds.
Cook the chicken, in batches, for 4-5 minutes turning halfway, until deep golden brown.
Drain on kitchen paper and keep warm while you fry the rest.
Spread a dollop of chipotle mayo across one bun half and a dollop of guacamole on the other.
Pile up the sandwich with lettuce, streaky bacon, gherkins and chicken and press together.
