Paul loves a Crispy Chicken Burger so I have a few in my repertoire and this is the easiest one. There’s very little prep and the actual cooking is incredibly fast, just 30 seconds each side. I use my trusty chicken seasoning mix to season the flour. A Crispy Chicken Burger has to have lettuce for me but otherwise I’ll add any toppings I fancy at the time. Cheese, pickles, tomatoes add whatever you like. I always use my burger sauce because it adds just the right sweet, acid, salt and smoke to any burger.
Serves 2 Adults & 2 Kids
2 large chicken breasts
150g breadcrumbs (white or golden)
150g plain flour
2 tbsp chicken seasoning
750ml vegetable oil
- Tip the breadcrumbs and chicken seasoning into a bowl and whisk to combine. Tip the flour into another bowl then whisk the two eggs together in a third bowl.
- Slice the chicken breasts in half horizontally then dip each piece in the flour, then egg then breadcrumbs in turn. Make sure you cover the chicken completely in each component.
- Put the vegetable oil in a large, shallow skillet on a medium high heat. Drop a small piece of white bread in the oil and if it sizzles then the oil is ready. Carefully slide each piece of chicken into the pan and cook for 30-45 seconds on each side until it’s golden then remove from the oil onto kitchen roll to drain.
- Spread the burger sauce on the buns then top with whatever fillings you like and top with the crispy chicken fillets.
