  • Place the chicken breasts into the food processor, removing any bones and skin first. Season it well with salt and pepper. Blitz your food processor until it resembles a similar texture of minced chicken.
  • Add a chicken OXO cube, mixed herbs and mustard along with Worcester sauce to the food processor and give it another whizz round so that the chicken can become well seasoned.
  • Remove the chicken from the food processor and make them into four equal sized burgers.
  • Back in the food processor add the bread slices along with a little basil to give it a nice bit of flavour. But it will still have the seasoning from the bottom of the food processor.
  • Roll the chicken burgers into the breadcrumbs. Make sure all sides and top and bottom are well coated and fridge for an hour on a large plate.
  • Place the burgers into the grill pan inside the Airfryer and cook for 8 minutes at 175c/350F.
  • While the burgers are cooking make the mayonnaise. Add homemade mayonnaise into a bowl and mix with honey and English mustard.
  • When the burgers are cooked place them inside of bread buns with the homemade mayonnaise and salad garnish.
  • Serve.


The chicken breasts I used were rather small. I bought them at a discount price from the supermarket as chicken strips rather than breasts. So it was like the same weight as 2 medium breasts.
You could make this more frugal by using chicken thighs or turkey leg meat. But I love to eat chicken breast and it is rather cheap here in Portugal.
No need to clean out the food processor between the chicken and the breadcrumbs as a little raw chicken and seasoning can enhance the flavour.
I get my chicken OXO cubesfrom here, but you could also use any other dried chicken stock produce.
We have found the best place to source chicken breasts to make Copycat Air Fried McChicken Sandwich is from ButcherBox. You even receive free bacon and $10 off your first order when you sign up with this link.
