Spicy Chicken Burger

The sandwich that I propose to you today is inspired by the thousands of images you can see on Ig, of delicious sandwiches with fried chicken covered with a spicy sauce and melted cheese. It is the first time I prepared one and despite everything I preferred to concentrate on a few ingredients, focusing a lot on the obviously home made sauce! But let’s see the various elements that make up this delightful monster!

The bread is homemade, to be precise, they are our delicious and soft Burgers Buns with Milk, which you can easily prepare the day before.

The sauce is made up of many ingredients but not impossible to find, perhaps the most particular is the Chipotle Red Jalapeno Pepper, which is a not very spicy Mexican pepper, with a toasted and smoked taste.

I chose the chicken thigh because it is my favorite part, meaty, always tender and tasty and above all it remains juicy and not dry like the breast.

I didn’t want a lot of toppings for this Spicy Chicken Burger, I wanted to focus a lot on the sauce and on the chicken. So I opted for some chedder cheese (it was almost a must!), pickled gherkins which I love madly and fried onion flakes which in itself they are already perfect on their own. And here’s a really tough sandwich! But I couldn’t not accompany my Spicy Chicken Burger with potatoes!

I opted for baked potatoes instead of fried, I blanched the potatoes with their skin and then I dressed them with a cream based on mayonnaise and parmesan. The mayonnaise I used in this recipe is particular because it’s flavored with ancient Dijon mustard (you can find it in many supermarkets) but you can use a normal one or the one you prefer!
