by Robert Broadfoot


for 8 servings

Buttermilk Marinade

  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs

Dill Dressing

  • 1 ½ cups plain greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • ¼ cup Parmesan, grated

Seasoned Flour

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • oil, for frying
  • 1 head butter lettuce
  • 2 tomatoes, slice
  • 8 burger buns, we used brioche buns


  1. In a medium bowl, combine all the buttermilk marinade ingredients. Toss in chicken thighs to coat.
  2. Marinate for at least one hour in the refrigerator.
  3. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients for dill dressing.
  4. Cover and let sit for at least an hour in the refrigerator.
  5. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients for seasoned flour. Dip the marinated chicken in flour until chicken is completely covered.
  6. Heat the oil to 350˚F (180˚C) in a deep pot. Do not fill more than half full with oil.
  7. Carefully fry chicken for roughly 7 minutes, or until cooked through. Internal temperature should reach 165˚F (75˚C), and the chicken is golden brown and crispy.
  8. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate, or wire rack.
  9. Heat a large skillet. Butter cut sides of the burger buns, then toast on hot skillet until browned and crisp.
