How a Thirsty Bird burger is made
The team at Thirsty Bird outline the process they use to create their delicious and succulent burgers:
First, we brine the bird with a mix of salt’s spices, garlic and herbs. These ingredients, when blended together, flavour the meat with a delicious fresh taste and allows for maximum juiciness.
Secondly, we air dry the chicken in a cool room for 24 hours. This process allows the skin to adhere to the meat which creates a succulent crispy combination with every bite.
Thirdly, we coat the chicken in our secret seasoned flour mix, dip the bird in a creamy buttermilk bath and repeat for double satisfaction.
In the final step, we cook the bird perfectly to enhance its mouth-watering, flavourful texture whilst crisping its salty skin to a beautiful golden crunch.
