  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups breadcrumbs
  • ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • oil for frying
For the burgers
  • 4 buns
  • 1 ½ cup coleslaw
  • sauce of your choice
  1. Cut the chicken breasts into strips, then use a meat tenderizer to bash the chicken well.

  2. In a large bowl or plate, add the chicken pieces, and pour over the buttermilk and season well with salt, pepper and paprika.

  3. Mix well to coat the chicken, then leave to marinate for at least 2-3 hours.

  4. Coat each chicken piece with breadcrumbs, then heat up the oil.

  5. Fry each chicken piece until golden.

  6. Remove from the pan and place the chicken on a plate lined with kitchen paper to remove the excess oil.

  7. Cut a bun in half, arrange coleslaw on on side, top with the chicken, and drizzle some sauce over.
