American-style Chicken Burgers

I had taken some chicken breast out of the freezer, and had no idea what to do with them. Then on my blogger feed, a recipe for chick-fil-a burgers popped up! Thats an American fast food chain, and as I have a soft spot for fast food, I wanted to try them. I was bit sceptical about the icing sugar in the recipe, but decided to go for it anyway. I'm glad I did, they tasted fantastic! Plus because you make them at home, you know what is in them and know that here are no hidden nasties. I served mine with just some mayo on a bun - yum!

4 boneless chicken breasts
1 egg
Splash of milk
1 cup plain flour
1 tablespoons icing sugar
1 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
vegetable oil for frying
4 buns

Place chicken breasts in a bag and pound out chicken to 1/2 inch thickness.
Beat egg and milk together in a bowl.  Combine flour, sugar and spices in another bowl.  Dip chicken on both sides in egg first, then flour mixture.
Heat oil in a deep frying pan.  Fry each piece for a few minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through.  Serve in rolls with mayonnaise.


  1. American food is my current favourite.
    I've just bought Jamie's America and trying out a dish tonight from it.
    Will do these soon too

    1. What do you think of the book? Should I get it? :D

  2. I like it, and yes, can never have too many recipe books.
    I've tried three dishes so far, all with great success.
