Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Morrocan
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 100g Breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp Ras Al Hanout
  • 2 Eggs beaten
  • 3 tbsp Plain flour
  • 350g Chicken breast (roughly 2 breasts)
  • 50g Harissa paste
  • 4 Brioche Buns
  • 200g hummus
  • 1 baby gem lettuce, leaves seperated
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced
  • Whole sweet chillis to taste
Method
  1. Set oven to 190c, 170c fan, Gas mark 3, 325f
  2. Spread the bread crumbs on a baking tray in a thin layer and bake for 5-7 minutes until just turning golden. Don't over cook as they will be toasted again when the chicken is baked.
  3. Remove the tray from the oven and sprinkle over the Ras Al Hanout, stir to combine well and set aside to cool.
  4. Set up a production line on your work top, with the beaten eggs in a small bowl, the flour spread on a plate and the cooled bread crumbs on another plate.
  5. If using chicken breast cut each breast into four pieces. Cut from top to bottom through the middle, effectively butterflying them, giving you two long fillets, then cut each of these in two from top to bottom giving you four long fillets. Or buy chicken mini fillets, these are slightly more expensive.
  6. Spread one side of each fillet with aromatic harissa paste and then dip into the flour, into the beaten egg and then into the spiced breadcrumbs and place on a baking sheet.
  7. Repeat for all the pieces of chicken , then bake in the oven for about 20 mins. They should be cooked but still soft.
  8. Meanwhile cut the brioche buns in half and toast the 8 halves
  9. Spread the bottom half of each bun generously with hummus
  10. Place lettuce and tomato on each half bun and top with two pieces of chicken. To make it sweet and hot add sweet chillies to taste. Place the toasted bun top on the chicken and serve with slaw and baked sweet potato fries.
