Crispy Chicken Burger aka Zinger burger

Updated on April 2nd, 2016

Juicy tender chicken fillet with crispy coating, served on toasted bun with lettuce and cheese. Crispy chicken burger which is also known as Zinger burger, and available at KFC and if its homemade no one can say NO to it

Now, there are few pointers which I learned from my experience and mistakes which if you keep in mind, you can make yummiest Zingers ever,

P1: for keeping it more juicy prefer using thigh fillets instead of breast part

P2: first marination should be somewhere in between 6 to 8 hours, longer the marination yummiest the final result

further more in between steps:

lets start with ingredients:

Chicken boneless skinless thighs - 4
Vinegar 6 tbsp
Salt 1 tsp
Red chili powder 1/2 tsp

All purpose flour 1 cup
Salt 1 tsp
Red chili powder 1 tsp
Baking powder 1 tsp
Mustard Powder 1/2 tsp

Burger buns
Salad leaves/ Ice burg leaves
Cheese slices

First marinate thigh pieces with salt, vinegar and red chili powder, and leave it for 6 - 8 hours

strain the marinated chicken, so excess water will drained

Then, season the flour with salt, red chili powder, baking powder and mustard powder. Dretch the pieces and lay them straight in single layer

put them in fridge for around 15 - 20 minutes and dretch them in flour again. you can do this one more time, but I feel 2 times is enough too

now, deep fry them...

P3: start on low-medium flame and cover for 5 minutes, turn and cover more and then fry on medium-high heat till they get good color
or fry on 350F covered for 3 minutes.

P4: place chicken pieces in baking tray covered with foil and then place a grill on it, and keep them in oven on lowest temperature of your oven... It will help drain extra oil from your chicken, keep it crispy and if its little uncooked left it will be done in there, and stay warm till you serve

for assembling, spread some mayonnaise on both sides of bun and toast them

meanwhile place the cheese slice over you cooked chicken and throw them in oven till cheese melts (I used pepper jack for more spicy chicken... yumm)

place melted cheese chicken fillet on toasted buns, spread some mayonnaise, some chopped lettuce and or lettuce leaf underneath chicken fillet,

and serve with wedges and coleslaw and ketchup and Enjoy!
