Golden crispy chicken
Buttermilk makes the difference in this burger recipe
BUTTERMILK is delicious, comforting and a little different. It’s a great way to marinate, add flavour and tenderise your chicken, which is ideal for making sliders or burgers.
If you’re entertaining or need a new idea for a family lunch or dinner then these sliders are ideal.
We use buttermilk and flour to fry them until they’re super golden and crispy, which keeps the chicken juicy and tasty.
We top the burger with slaw and a zesty chimichurri sauce which brings the dish alive and keeps it all fresh.
We hope you give these a go this week. If you do, then make sure to send us a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org or tag us on Instagram #danandsteph.
