Dip the chicken into the egg and cover it with toasty breadcrumbs.

Grill the chicken with breadcrumbs for about 10 mins, until golden and crisp on both sides and the chicken is cooked through.

Beat the lemon zest, juice and lots of black pepper into the mayonnaise. Spread some of the mayo onto the bottom halves of the buns, top with a chicken breast and salad of your choice and serve.
