Chicken Karaage Bao Burgers Recipe

Chicken karaage:
 4 free range chicken thigh fillets, quartered
 1 box coat ‘n cook original [or flour]
 1 bottle (500ml) avocado cooking oil, for deep frying
 ¼ red cabbage
 2 carrots
 1 apple, cored and quartered
 ½ cup bean sprouts
 ½ cup coriander, chopped
 ¼ cup Vietnamese mint, chopped
 1 lime, juiced
 2 tsp sesame oil
 1 tbsp soy sauce
 1 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
 8 bao buns, warmed
 Japanese mayonnaise
 Food processor if available

In a bowl coat chicken thigh pieces in coat ‘n cook. Make sure each piece is completely covered.


Heat the oil to medium hot (170°C) in a heavy set pan or wok. Using tongs add a handful of chicken pieces to the oil, deep fry until crispy and cooked through (about 4 minutes). Carefully remove and lay on a paper towel lined rack. Repeat with the rest of the pieces.


Set up your food processor with the grater attachment and grate cabbage, carrot and apple. (Alternatively grate or finely chop these ingredients by hand.) Pour into a bowl and mix all remaining slaw ingredients together.


Load each bao bun with slaw, pieces of chicken karaage and a drizzle of Japanese mayonnaise. Yum!
