  • 1 tbsp sweet smoked paprika

  • 1 tbsp salt flakes

  • 2 tsp white pepper

  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper

  • 1 tsp ground cumin

  • 300ml Buttermilk

  • 4 small chicken breasts

  • 1 ½ cups plain flour

  • ¼ cup cornflour

  • 4 soft rolls

  • Quick slaw

  • 1 small head fennel, thinly shaved

  • 1 carrot, cut into thin batons

  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage

  • 1 cup shredded parsley

  • 2 tbsp aioli

  • ½ lemon, juiced


  • 1.

    Combine the spices, salt and peppers. Remove 1 ½ tbs the mixture and place in a large non-reactive container with the buttermilk and stir to combine.

  • 2.

    Cover each breast with a piece of cling film and slightly bash with a rolling pin to flatten. Place in the buttermilk mixture and marinade for at least 1 hour or overnight.

  • 3.

    Combine the remaining spice mix in a roasting tray or dish with the flour and cornflour.

  • 4.

    Remove the chicken from the buttermilk and slightly drain any excess. Coat in the flour mixture and press down to make sure the coating sticks.

    Heat 1cm oil in a deep frypan over medium high heat.

  • 6.

    In batches, cook the chicken and 3-4 minutes a side then drain on a rack set above a baking tray. Do not drain on paper towel as this will take away the crispiness.

  • 8.

    Serve chicken with slaw or as a sub with soft rolls and slaw.
