Fried Chicken Burger Recipe Without Buttermilk

This fried chicken burger is crispy, crunchy and so delicious! It is the best homemade burger I have ever made.

Fried Chicken Burger

To make this yummy burger at home you will need just a few ingredients. Like chicken breast, yoghurt, flour and some spices. I have marinated the chicken in yoghurt instead of buttermilk. Just cut the chicken breast in half and prick it with a toothpick or fork. Then add it to the yoghurt mixture. This step is really important, as the chicken will absorb all the flavours from the mixture. Marinate it for at least 2 hours or even overnight in the refrigerator.

Take it out and allow it to come to room temperature. Then dredge in the dry coating mixture. Dip it again in the marinade and shake off the excess. Dip it in the dry mix and coat well. By dipping it twice in the mixtures, the chicken will become super crispy and crunchy on the outside. And it will be juicy and succulent on the inside. So don’t forget this key step.

Fry till they turn golden brown in colour. Toast the buns with butter, apply mint mayo on the buns, add onion, tomato slices and fried chicken. Top with another bun half and serve. To make mint mayonnaise at home check the note below.

Homemade mint mayonnaise – In this recipe, I have used store-bought mint mayo. But if you like you can make it at home. Just add 1/4 cup mint leaves, 2 green chillies, 1/2 cup mayonnaise, sugar, salt and 1 tbsp lemon juice in a blender jar. Blend until you get a fine paste. Mint mayonnaise is ready and always store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
