Homemade KFC Zinger Burgers
It sounds so hideously wrong, but Zinger lovers know it is so fabulously, filthily right! ;)

  • Skinless chicken breasts
  • KFC seasoning
  • Chilli powder
  • Plain flour
  • Fine polenta cornmeal
  • A beaten egg
To assemble
  • Sliced cheese
  • A cooked hash brown per burger
  • Sliced tomatoes
  • Tomato salsa
  • Mayonnaise
  • BBQ sauce
  • Round lettuce/butter lettuce leaves
  • Soft burger buns
  1. Mix about 1 tbsp seasoning per 100g plain flour to coat 4 chicken breasts. You may add up to 50g polenta if you want extra crunch. I also add an extra tsp of chilli powder to give them the "Zinger" vibe.
  2. After coating with the flour mixture first, dip the chicken in the beaten egg then for a second time, in the seasoned flour.
  3. Then either bake for 20-25 minutes at 180˚C or fry in a frying pan with a thin film of vegetable oil in for approximately 8-10 minutes turning once until cooked through and no pink remaining. I must admit to preferring to shallow fryl if making burgers as they have a lot less fat than the bone-in, skin on portions.
  4. Serve burgers with a slice of cheese melted on top, salsa, mayonnaise and a hash brown (homemade if you have the time) á la the Colonel himself ;)
