Flaming Hot Chicken Tower

Uniformdating.com conducted a survey to find out which foods the UK's doctors, nurses, police officers, armed forces and fire fighters loved to eat, and found that Indian curries, fish and chips and soup were universally loved. They then teamed up with top chef Michael Caines, who developed 15 simple, inexpensive recipes that uniformed singles (and anyone else who fancies it!) can prepare and cook at home.  The recipes are available exclusively through a new app, Uniform Foodies, being launched by Uniform Dating today (13th June), and you will be able to upload your own recipes to the app (available from the App Store).

I have devised my own recipe that could be fit for a firefighter, or anyone else that loves spicy food for that matter, and have called it the Flaming Hot Chicken Tower. The lightly fried chicken breasts are layered up with a home-made chilli sauce, which can be made in advance and stored in the fridge. The tower burger can be eaten hot or cold, so even if you are on a late shift everything can be prepared in advance and assembled when you are ready to eat.
