Southern Style Chicken Burger

What You Will Need:

  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1 tsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1 tbsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup (250ml) buttermilk
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 x 300g chicken breasts halved
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1/3 tar10 garlic aioli
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • Vegetable oil or canola oil, for deep frying
  • 4 brioche rolls, split
  • 1 baby cos lettuce, leaves
  • 1 tomato sliced


Mix flour, Cajun seasoning, pepper, and salt in a shallow bowl. Combine buttermilk and eggs in another shallow bowl.

Working with 1 piece at a time, coat chicken in flour mixture, shaking off excess. Dip in buttermilk, allowing excess to drip back into bowl. Coat again in flour mixture, shaking off excess. Set aside on a plate lined with baking paper.

Prepare salad for burger and refrigerate.

Pour oil into a large heavy frying pan to a depth of 1 ½ cm. Heat over medium heat until oil is hot (test with a small piece of bread – when bread bubbles and turns golden brown the oil is ready).

Fry the chicken, in batches, until golden brown and cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes per side.

Transfer to a wire rack set over a baking tray; season lightly with extra salt.

Spread rolls with tar10 garlic Aioli op with lettuce, tomato, onion and chicken breast.
