  • 4 chicken thigh fillets, skinless
  • for dusting flour, heavily seasoned
  • about 100ml milk
  • polenta
  • oil
  • 4 hot dog rolls or soft white rolls
  • good-quality mango chutney
  • mayonnaise
  • some leaves watercress, not the stalky bits


  • STEP 1

    Dip the chicken in the flour, then the milk and finally the polenta. Heat some oil in a frying pan and fry the chicken on both sides until it is golden brown and crunchy. Make sure it is cooked through – turn the heat down and carry on cooking if you need to.

  • STEP 2

    Spread the rolls with the chutney and mayo, add some watercress leaves and then put a piece of chicken in each. If you are using hot dog rolls, cut the chicken in half first so that it fits.
