  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup (250ml) buttermilk
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed

  • 1 tsp tabasco sauce
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced

  1. Whisk flour, Cajun seasoning, pepper, and salt in a shallow bowl. Combine buttermilk and eggs in another shallow bowl. Working with 1 piece at a time, coat chicken in flour mixture, shaking off excess. Dip in buttermilk, allowing excess to drip back into bowl. Coat again in flour mixture, shaking off excess. Set aside on a plate lined with baking paper.
  2. Combine garlic, mayonnaise, and tabasco in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, combine onion, chilli, cabbage, carrot and lime juice and zest.
  3. Pour oil into a large heavy frying pan to a depth of 1 ½ cm. Heat over medium heat until oil is hot (test with a small piece of bread – when bread bubbles and turns golden brown the oil is ready). Fry the chicken, in batches, until golden brown and cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a wire rack set over a baking tray; season lightly with extra salt.
  4. Spread rolls with spicy mayonnaise. Top with lettuce, pickles, cabbage slaw and chicken. Serve with shoestring fries.
