Buttermilk Fried Chicken Burger

The boys are really into burgers right now and I have been trying my best to avoid burger chains as much as possible. The better option has been to simply make our own. So here is a yummy, buttermilk marinated, shallow fried chicken burger.

I have been feeling pretty pleased with myself after a major declutter this weekend, it wasn’t easy to be so brutal about the things I needed to get rid of, I am a sucker for sentiment and when I am in that frame of mind, I can literally find sentiment in anything, especially when it relates to the boys. But I finally have room for all the new Christmas gifts. Hurrah!

My current obsession are brioche buns, I can’t get enough of that rich, buttery goodness! Top your burger with avocado, salad, peppery mayo and melted cheese… ahhhh, I am in burger heaven right now! Who needs a burger chain burger?! This is soooo much better!

In case you’re wondering about the buttermilk chicken. Marinating the chicken in it, will tenderise the meat and give it a creamier taste. It’s worth it, I promise!

You can freeze these too! So you don’t have to worry about having to plan to marinate your chicken hours ahead every time you want a burger. Just defrost and go!
