Fried Chicken Breast "Burger"

Colleen Sowa


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!

How to Make Fried Chicken Breast "Burger"


  1. Butterfly cut each chicken breast, or pound it gently but firmly with the side of a saucer as in this photo.
    You will be making the meat thinner and larger.
  2. Put corn flake crumbs, flour and spices together in bowl. Mixing well.
  3. Beat the eggs and water together in a separate bowl.
  4. Coat the chicken with the corn flake mixture.
  5. Dip coated chicken into the egg mixture.
  6. Coat with the corn flake mixture again. Then put in Skillet with vegetable oil to fry.
  7. Fry the chicken about 7 minutes on each side, until chicken is browned, cooked and juices are clear.
  8. Place two slices of desired bread on a plate. Spread each slice with mayonnaise (or other desired topping).
  9. Put lettuce on one slice of bread and a chicken breast on the other slice of bread.
  10. Put sliced tomato on top of one side.
  11. Put both sides of sandwich together.
  12. Cut sandwich in half on the diagonal (I am so fussy about this!)
  13. Serve!
