The foodie’s latest creation oozes delicious flavours, with fluffy pancakes piled high, sandwiching layers that each include a Birds Eye Chicken Shop chicken burger lightly covered in peanut butter. To top it off, a drizzling of honey and some berry goodness is added for a sweet finish.

Brunch - a combination of breakfast and lunch - has grown in popularity over the last few years and this recipe is the perfect brunch time treat, only requiring five simple ingredients.

Although, it seems the sweet and savoury combination at brunch has divided the nation with one user saying “[I] think [yo]u might have lost the plot” and others stating it’s a [food] crime with, “hello police…I’d like to report a crime.” On the flip side, lovers of the creative combination have commented “I never have [tried this] but I definitely need to” and “yasss love this combo.”

The chicken and peanut butter pairing appears to be one of the main sticking points, with users commenting the “peanut butter ruined it” and that the spread be left “miles away from the chicken.”
