After having his mind suitably blown by tasting some of the best real fried chicken Harlem, New York had to offer, Irish man, Garrett FitzGerald, set up his pop up fried buttermilk chicken shack at hip food markets across London. 50,000 chicken buns (and no doubt happy customers) later, Butchies has become one Time Out’s most popular street food stalls to try in London.  Chicken buns are already soaring in popularity in the US, and with Danny Meyer’s Shake Shack recently adding them to the menu, Garret predicts them be next big thing, this side of the water!

In a bowl, mix together the buttermilk and chicken pieces. Cover and leave in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight, if possible.
When you are ready to cook the chicken, heat a large high-sided pot over a medium heat and fill with 3-4 inches of oil- heat to 350˚F. Mix the flour, oregano, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, sea salt and ground black pepper on a large plate.
Remove the chicken pieces from the buttermilk and dredge in the seasoned flour. Shake off any excess, then place the chicken in the pan to fry. Cook for about 5 minutes on either side until they are cooked through and have a good golden brown colour. Remove from the pan using a slotted spoon and drain on a plate lined with kitchen paper.
Mix together the mayo with a few drops of chipotle hot sauce.
Assemble the sandwiches by spreading a dollop of hot mayo across one bun and a dollop of guacamole on the other. Pile up the sandwich with, lettuce, streaky bacon and chicken and press together. Enjoy!
