  1. Marinate chicken with buttermilk, hot sauce, salt and pepper. Chill for 2-3 hours.
  2. Mix plain and rice flours together in bowl and set aside.
  3. For the slaw, finely slice the apple, radish and celery. Place in a second bowl and toss with lemon juice. Combine aioli and vinegar. Add to mixing bowl and coat everything well. Set aside.
  4. For the buffalo sauce, place the vinegar, honey, hot sauce, paprika, garlic powder and 125ml water in a saucepan. Bring to boil, then reduce heat to medium simmering for 10 minutes. In a cup, whisk the cornflour with 1 tablespoon water until smooth. Add to sauce. Simmer over medium heat whisking continuously for 2 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice, and cook over medium heat until sauce has reduced by half and is a thick consistency. Remove from heat and stir in butter until melted and sauce is smooth and glossy.
  5. To cook the chicken, coat each piece in flour mixture. Heat oil in a medium-sized pot. When hot, add in batches of 3-4 until golden brown and cooked through. Drain on paper towel and season with crushed sea salt.
  6. To assemble, place lettuce on the burger bun base, add slaw then 3 chicken pieces. Drizzle with buffalo sauce and add Castello® Burger Blue cheese slice while the chicken is still hot so it melts slightly. Top with burger bun lid.
