Cooking Instructions
  1. Season the chicken and leave covered on bench to reduce the chill.

  3. Mix the flour, cornflour and baking soda in a large bowl. Whisk the eggs in another bowl. Place the panko breadcrumbs and curry powder into a shallow bowl. 
  4. Coat the chicken pieces in the flour mixture one at a time. Transfer them to the egg bowl then dip into the breadcrumbs. Return to the egg and dip back into the breadcrumbs to coat and set aside. 
  5. Heat the oil over a medium heat until breadcrumbs dropped in start to bubble. Fry the chicken pieces for 2-3 minutes each side and drain on a wire rack. When pierced with a knife the liquid should run clear. 
  6. To assemble the burger, place the cabbage mixture on the base, then add the chicken. Top with a little more mayonnaise then place the lid on top.
