IF you’ve been craving McDonald’s but can’t wait for the restaurant to reopen, you can recreate one of their iconic burgers at home after a fan shared their recipe for a McChicken sandwich.

To whip up the classic dish at home you’ll need the four main components – chicken, a burger bun, lettuce and mayonnaise.
And to create the authentic breaded patty you’ll also need an egg, seasoning, flour and cornstarch.
Start by getting your chicken and ground it, either with a blender or food processor until it has a smooth consistency.
Next you need to season it to give it some flavour, with Joshuah saying he uses “salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika”.
He continues: “Go ahead and form the patties, you want to keep your hands nice and wet so this doesn’t stick to you.”
You need to chill the burgers in the freezer for around 90 minutes, until they’re “dry”.
Next shred your head of lettuce and set it to one side, ready for later.
He says: “Then we’re going to get two separate bowls for the colouring process, one’s going to be dry.
“And one will be the egg wash of one egg, salt and then whisk it.”
Joshuah uses flour, salt, cornstarch, salt, pepper and garlic powder for the dry mix.
The trick is to dip the patties in the dry mix, then the wet and back in the dry mix.
Explaining the next step, Joshuah says: “Once the patties are nice and dry take them out the freezer after like an hour-and-a-half, and coat these."
In the meantime heat up some oil in a pan, and when it’s hot enough pop your patties in and fry them for around five minutes on each side.
Assemble your burger bun by sprinkling a healthy amount of lettuce on one half, and mayonnaise on the other.
Pop your burger in the middle and voila, you’ve got yourself a McChicken sandwich.
