Ahh, so excited to share this burger with you guys!! I think this is my first “fried” anything recipe on my blog and it was so worth the time and effort. We shouldn’t be eating deep fried foods everyday, but once in a while I crave a nice juicy piece of fried chickennnn!! I am human after all.
The best part of this burger is how JUICY the chicken is! When you order fried chicken burgers at most restaurants- you get this giant thick piece of bland chicken- so of course I set out to do the opposite. I soak the chicken breasts in buttermilk and spices which makes it tender and adds a ton of flavor. I only let mine soak for about 3 hours but next time I’ll do it even longer since the results were phenomenal.
The slaw that you see piled on top of the juicy patty is absolutely finger licking good. When I eat a burger- I like the sauce to be drippin down my hands- that’s how I know its good! My show stopper ingredient in the slaw is definitely the pickled jalapeño juice! This will be a game changer if you’ve never added this. Pickled jalapeños and its juice has such a delicious flavor and adds just the right amount of acidity without being over powering!
If you actually just omit the cabbage from the slaw recipe- what you get is an amazing burger sauce or just a great universal condiment to keep in your fridge at all times!
Hope you all enjoy this!! Happy Eating ?
