An amateur chef has revealed how to make KFC-inspired burgers at home with a healthier twist.
Luke recreated KFC’s spicy crispy chicken and shared the easy recipe with the Home Cooking Australia Facebook group.
To make the crispy chicken ‘fakeaway’ you need seven ingredients: chicken breast, flour, garlic powder, paprika powder, onion powder, cornflakes and eggs.
Luke also stuffed his burger with bacon, shredded carrot, lettuce, and onion.
“I get sick of seeing kfc ads if you live in the country so I made my own kfc spicy crispy chicken,” he wrote on Facebook.
Instead of driving to the nearest KFC, an Australian home cook made his own ‘fakeaway’ burger. Luke made his own version of KFC’s spicy crispy chicken with just seven ingredients – chicken, flour, garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, cornflakes and eggs
To make the chicken, start by tenderizing the meat between two sheets of cling film.
Then prepare three plates – one with flour and the herbs, another with a beaten egg and the third with crushed cornflakes.
To crush the cornflakes, Luke suggested placing the cornflakes in a zip-top plastic bag and then using a rolling pin to break the cornflakes into smaller pieces.
Then dip the chicken breasts one by one in the flour, then the egg and cornflakes, so that an even layer is applied.
Also make sure that the cornflakes are pressed firmly onto the chicken.
Bake in the oven or airfryer at 180 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes before assembling the burgers and serving.

Compared to the original, the 25-year-old’s homemade meal is a healthier option as it contains over 30g of protein.
“If you can flame grill your meat, you get the authentic taste,” she wrote on Instagram, sharing a video with her 60,000 followers.
In the clip, Bec prepared the meal by cooking the lean beef patty, then placing it on the bottom brioche bun and topping it with cheese.
Then she added the tomato sauce, sliced gherkins, onions and tomato and drizzled over the mayonnaise.
