I created this recipe as an alternative to a regular burger. This recipe has all the steps included, but the main thing is making the fried chicken breast "burger". The toppings are all optional according to your tastes.

This really is an easy recipe... I just broke it down into steps with photos to show all of you.

*** You can also make this using fish or pork!

I hope you will try this recipe.... it is so good!
