Buttermilk Chicken Burgers

Serves 6-8 Prep Time 15 minutes   Cook Time 35 minutes   Rated:

We have a new fave burger in town and this is it! You may have noticed that Buttermilk Chicken burgers are showing up everywhere on restaurant menus, and with good reason it seems. Occasionally they are on top of waffles for breakfast, (how very Tenina's American!!) They are delish. We have made these several times over the summer and the leftovers are amazing as a straight up chicken salad. (SO go ahead and make the entire amount, you won't be sorry!)

Buttermilk soaking is a bit of a miracle worker. It softens the protein strands and you will find the chicken incredibly tender and flavoursome. You should try it with other proteins! Especially if you are making your own butter anytime. Keep that first press of buttermilk for this recipe. Enjoy!

Place salt and all herbs and spices into the Thermomix bowl and mill 4 sec/speed 5.


Toss in a bowl with the panko crumbs. Set aside.


Combine the buttermilk and egg in a large bowl and whisk together. Soak the chicken pieces in this mixture for at least 20 minutes or longer.


Remove chicken from the buttermilk and let excess moisture drip off. Toss each piece of chicken in the spice mixture, coating generously on both sides. Shake off excess coating and then lay each piece on a baking rack for 20-30 minutes.


Preheat the oven to 160°C and line a large baking tray with paper. Lay the chicken on prepared tray, it is better not to be touching for more crispiness!


Place the tray into the oven and cook for at least 30 minutes or until the coating is crispy and golden brown.


This chicken is equally good when stone cold the next day.


Serve with Pretzel burger buns, cheese slices, coleslaw and Chipotle Mayo.
