KFC might be bringing out a hot cross bun burger – here's how to make it at home

Easter is almost here, which means this Saturday will be spent rushing around the supermarkets stocking up on last-minute eggs because you weren’t prepared at all (don’t worry, we’ll be doing the same thing).

If you’re looking to eat more than chocolate, KFC has come up with a new chicken recipe for those who fancy eating fast food on Easter Sunday instead of the traditional Sunday lunch.

This isn’t just a random recipe, though – this is something KFC is thinking of launching themsevles.

The fast food restaurant is going to be trialling the KFC Hot Cross Bun Burger.

The Classic Fillet Burger bun has been replaced with a traditional hot cross bun, then stuffed with Original Recipe chicken breast filled and served with fresh lettuce and mayo.

No, we’re not sure what to think of that either – but it’s definitely something we’d be tempted to try.

The burger is currently being tested and trialled by KFC’s chief innovators to make sure the ‘Easter burger is a hopping success’.

If it gets good feedback, the burger could make its Easter debut across the nation next year.

But if you’re a bit bummed that you won’t be able to try it this weekend, KFC has come to the rescue with the recipe.

They say to simply cut a hot cross bun in half and toast it.

Then, add a layer of mayo to the bottom bun, followed by a layer of lettuce.

Next, place an Original Recipe chicken fillet on top (yes, you will have to go to KFC first), and finally, add your top bun.

We’re not totally sure how the currants and fried chicken will taste together, but hey, it’s worth a go, right?
