The 'Curious Nut' blog recently developed a recipe for a crispy chicken burger that is sandwiched between two pan-fried rice buns. In recent years, many chefs have sought to elevate the humble hamburger bun. Some creative burger buns include ramen-based buns, cheesy macaroni buns and even donut-inspired buns.

The latest take on the classic hamburger bun comes in the form of a pan-fried rice patty. While a rice-based bun may sound complex, all that's needed is sticky rice, soy sauce and some seasoning. The rice is then shaped into a bun and pan-fried on the grill. The rice provides a light and fluffy texture that perfectly complements the crispy chicken burger filling.

While a rice bun is equally as filling as its bread-based counterparts, this dish offers a unique take on the humble chicken burger.
