An amateur cook has revealed how to make KFC-inspired burgers at home with a healthier twist.

Luke recreated KFC’s spicy crunchy chicken and shared the simple recipe to the Home Cooking Australia Facebook group. 

To make the crispy chicken ‘fakeaway’ you’ll need seven ingredients – chicken breast, plain flour, garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, cornflakes and eggs. 

Luke also filled his burger with bacon, shredded carrot, lettuce and onion.

‘Get sick of seeing kfc ads when you live in the country so I made my own kfc spicy crunchy chicken,’ he wrote on Facebook.  

Rather then driving to the nearest KFC, an Aussie home cook recreated his own ‘fakeaway’ burger.  Luke made his own version of KFC’s spicy crunchy chicken using just seven ingredients – chicken, plain flour, garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, cornflakes and eggs

To make the chicken, start by tenderising the meat between two sheets of clingwrap.

Then prepare three plates – one with plain flour and the spices, another with a beaten egg and the third with crushed up cornflakes.

To crush the cornflakes, Luke suggested placing the cereal in a plastic Ziplock bag then use a rolling pin to smash it into smaller pieces. 

Then dip the chicken breasts one by one in the plain flour, then the egg and the cornflakes, ensuring an even coat is applied.

Also make sure the cornflakes are pressed firmly onto the chicken. 

Cook in the oven or air fryer for 20 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius before assembling the burgers and serve. 

Ingredients:

  • Chicken breast
  • Plain flour
  • Garlic powder
  • Paprika
  • Onion powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • Cornflakes
  • Egg

Method:

Place the chicken breast between to sheets of clingwrap then pound with a meat tenderiser

Prepare three plates – one with plain flour and spices, another with a beaten egg and the third with crushed up cornflakes

Dip the chicken breast in the plain flour, then egg then the cornflakes and ensure an even coat of each is applied

Cook the chicken in an air fryer or oven for 20 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius

Assemble the burger and enjoy  

The Facebook post was seen my hundreds and many thanked Luke for sharing the recipe.

‘That looks way better then anything KFC has on offer,’ one person wrote, another added: ‘I bet that was 1000x tastier then KFC.’ 

‘Looks great. Good on you,’ a third added, while others said the homemade meal looked ‘delicious’ and ‘tasty’.

Bec Hardgrave, from Brisbane, made the ‘fakeaway’ burger using 100g of lean beef mince, smoky cheese from Coles, low sugar tomato sauce, low fat mayonnaise, pickles, lettuce, tomato and onion in an Aldi brioche bun.

Bec’s version contains 390 calories while the fast-food original contains 743 calories – almost double the amount.

Compared to the original, the 25-year-old’s homemade meal is a healthier option as it contains more than 30g of protein.

‘If you can flame grill your meat, you’ll get the authentic taste,’ she wrote on Instagram and shared a video with her 60,000 followers. 

In the clip, Bec prepared the meal by cooking the lean beef patty then placed it on the bottom brioche bun and topped with cheese.

Next, she added the tomato sauce, sliced pickles, onions and tomato, then drizzled the mayonnaise on top.
