fried chicken buns

  • serves 4
  • Easy

This crowd pleaser would make a great quick supper during the Christmas period or can be scaled up when you have unexpected guests (especially lots of kids!) round. All you need are some chicken thigh fillets, salad, mango chutney and soft rolls.



  • chicken thigh fillets 4, skinless
  • flour for dusting, heavily seasoned
  • milk about 100ml
  • polenta
  • oil
  • hot dog rolls or soft white rolls 4
  • good-quality mango chutney
  • mayonnaise
  • watercress some leaves, 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.
