Burger meets the heat with our Frank's Kicking Chicken Burger with Spicy Wedges and Salad. We've taken succulent chicken thighs, coated them in breadcrumbs, given them an extra kick with Frank's RedHot sauce and popped them in a soft bun with mayo and lettuce. Served with a side of spicy chips and a refreshing carrot salad, it's a burger worth biting into.
Boxes and ingredients are packed in facilities that handles Peanut, Nuts, Sesame, Fish, Crustaceans, Milk, Egg, Mustard, Celery, Soya, Gluten and Sulphites. Due to the conflict in Ukraine, it has been necessary to substitute sunflower oil with rapeseed oil in some products without a label change. The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.

Preheat your oven to 200°C. Chop the potatoes lengthways into 2cm slices, then chop into 2cm wide chips (no need to peel). Pop the chips onto a large, low-sided, wide baking tray. Drizzle with oil, sprinkle over half the Central American style spice mix, season with salt and pepper then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer. When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 25-30 mins. Turn halfway through. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary - you want the chips nicely spread out.
Trim the root from the baby gem lettuce. Reserve 2 whole leaves for the burger, then thinly slice the rest. Chop the tomato into 1cm pieces. Trim and peel the carrot. Use a vegetable peeler to peel long ribbons from all sides of the length of the carrot. Stop when you get to the carrot core. Pour the cider vinegar, sugar (see ingredients for amount) and olive oil for the dressing (see ingredients for amount) into a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper, add the tomatoes and mix together.
Pop the panko breadcrumbs into a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. In another large bowl, mix together the cornflour, remaining Central American style spice mix and water (see ingredients for amount). Season with salt and pepper and whisk until well combined. Dip the chicken thighs into the cornflour mixture, then the breadcrumbs, ensuring they are completely coated. Then pop the chicken onto a plate. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands after handling chicken and its packaging.
Pop a high-sided frying pan on high heat and add enough oil to completely coat the bottom of the pan. TIP: You want the oil to be hot so the chicken fries properly - heat for 2-3 mins before you add the chicken. Once hot, carefully lay the chicken pieces into the pan and fry until golden-brown and cooked through, 12-14 mins total. Turn every 2-3 mins. Once cooked, transfer the chicken pieces to a plate lined with kitchen paper. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
When you're almost ready to serve, cut the burger buns in half and pop them into the oven to warm through, 2-3 mins. Add the sliced baby gem and carrot ribbons to the bowl with the dressing and tomatoes. Toss well to coat the salad in the dressing.
When everything is ready, divide the buns between your plates. Equally share half the mayo between the bottom halves of the buns, and top with the reserved whole baby gem leaves. Lay on the fried chicken (you may need to cut some in half in order to share it out equally) and drizzle the Frank's RedHot sauce all over the top. Then, sandwich the top half of the bun on. Serve with the baby gem salad, spicy chips and remaining mayo for dipping alongside. Enjoy!
