KFC Burger

Jump to Recipe

Crunchy, juicy and colorful – that is my idea of a really good KFC burger! And this one is healthy and easy to make too!

For the wet coating for this kfc style burger recipe, instead of the yogurt you can use buttermilk or kefir.

The actual burger, for this healthy kfc burger, is very crunchy. For the coating I am using cornflakes which I like to lightly crush. I do this with my hand but you can do in the food processor too.  

To go on top of with the bright burger part, for this burger kfc style recipe, I like to serve healthy coleslaw. To make it even healthier, you can skip adding the mayo.

This coleslaw salad will keep in the fridge for two to three days.

To go along with this chicken burger kfc style, I like to serve very simple potato wedges, ketchup and of course pickles!

This burger kfc style is very light in taste so it wont leave you feeling heavy afterwards.
