One of my life’s pleasure is this crispy deep fried, moist, and spicy hot chicken thigh fillets sandwiched on two soft burger buns with melting cheese, crisp lettuce and sriracha infused creamy mayonnaise, in short the Zinger Burger. I first had this way back in the Philippines when KFC first offered it, I instantly got hooked as I find the perfect combination of flavours and textures in a burger bun.
Here in New Zealand, this type of burger is quite different (or the recipe was changed) because back home I remember that KFC uses thigh meat which is tastier and moist, here they use chicken breast which I find it dry and does not have that much flavour. Hence I learned how to make them at home similar to how they do it back in the Philippines during the old days. While it is not an exact copy from the real recipe, I can guarantee that the flavour and texture is nearly similar if not better.
Having said that, I invite you to try this recipe and let me know your thoughts on using chicken thighs instead of the chicken breast or vice versa.
