Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup dry tempura mix
  • 2 tablespoons yellow corn meal
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon MSG
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 chicken breast filets
  • 4 sesame seed hamburger buns
  • 1 cup chopped iceberg lettuce
  • 4 slices tomato

McChicken Sauce

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 dash onion powder

Instructions

The sauce is fairly self explanatory. Simply mix.

The chicken is the most difficult aspect, to create the breaded fillet simply :

  1. Beat the egg and add to the water in a shallow bowl.
  2. Combine the flour, tempura mix, salt, pepper, MSG, onion powder, corn meal, garlic powder in a large zip lock bag.
  3. Take a chicken breast and pound hard until around 6mm thick
  4. Toss the breast into the egg / water mix and then into the zip lock bag and coat it. Shake it about and do this with all 4 chicken breasts, leaving them in the bag.
  5. Freeze for around an hour.
  6. Remove the breasts, dip in the egg / water mix and coat again in the remaining dry mixture.

Now get the deep fat fryer ready, heat to 375 degrees f (175 c). Deep fat fry all 4 fillets for 10-12 minutes.

Take your bun and lightly toast. Take the top piece and place the sauce on it, then generous pinch of shredded lettuce and 1 tomato slice.

Now add the chicken and the bottom bun, flip over and you’re done.
