  • 1/2 tsp black pepper powder
  • 1 cup slightly crushed cornflakes
  • 1 egg, beaten with 1 tbsp milk
  • oil for deep frying

  1. For the chicken, trim the fat and clean the chicken breasts.
  2. Slice each breast through the middle to make two thinner layers. You will have a total of 4 slices from the 2 breasts.
  3. Marinate the slices overnight using the spices of your choice.
  4. To make buttermilk at home, simply add 1 tbsp. lemon or vinegar in a cup of room temperature milk and let it stand 10-15 minutes, then stir and use it.  Do not omit this marination step as it helps flavor and tenderizes the chicken breast.
  5. Have 3 wide bowls or plates ready. Put the flour, cornflour, baking powder, salt, and pepper in one plate and mix it up. In the second plate, beat the egg with 1 tbsp. milk. Then put the crushed cornflakes on the third plate. Set aside.
  6. Remove the chicken slices from the buttermilk marinade.
  7. First, dump each slice on both sides in the seasoned flour. Then dip it in the egg and finally roll it in the cornflakes. Then again in the flour, followed by the egg and finally the cornflakes the last time. So each slice will have a double coating. This gets a little messy, but don't worry about that, the results will more than makeup for it.
  8. Set the double-coated slices on a plate and heat your oil. Once hot, put 2 slices at a time, reduce the heat to medium-low and allow the chicken to fry until it becomes golden and crispy. It takes a total of about 3 minutes per side to get properly cooked.
  9. Remove from the oil and drain on the kitchen towels. When all the slices are fried, you can start preparing the buns. Slice each bun and toast them lightly. Add whatever toppings and condiments you prefer and top with a crunchy chicken zinger slice. Squeeze a drizzle of ketchup or chili sauce over it and then cover with the top half of the bun. Serve with fries and a cold drink!
  10. Enjoy!
