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

 

To serve:

 

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 

Sliced gherkins

 

Method:

 

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.
