How To Make Seriously Tasty (And Easy) Fried Chicken Burgers

Yes. Please.

When the mood for fried chicken strikes, this crispy chicken burger recipe will be here, patiently waiting in all its glory.

Imagine chicken breast marinated in a soy, ginger and garlic sauce, which is battered and pan-fried to crispy perfection, and paired with sesame mayo and crunchy coleslaw in a soft seeded bun.

But before you get started here are some top tips for making the perfect chicken burger from Ribs & Burgers head chef, Gareth Naar.

"Most importantly is to use fresh, quality produce. You'll notice a world of difference," Naar told The Huffington Post Australia.

"To get the most flavour, we recommend marinating the chicken for 2-4 hours. Although if you are pressed for time, a minimum of 30 minutes will suffice.

"If using a larger chicken breast, the breast can be cut across the thicker section into two smaller portions."
