  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    In a metal mixing bowl , combine the chopped habanero chiles, lemon juice, ginger, vegetable oil, paprika, garlic, sugar, and chile flakes. Stir quickly to bind the oil and lemon juice.
  3. Step 3

    Spoon half of the sauce into a separate bowl and set aside for later.
  4. Step 4

    Add the chicken breast fillets to the remaining chile sauce and stir well to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  5. Step 5

    Mix together the flour and salt. Remove the chicken breasts from the chile sauce and shake off any excess. Lightly dredge the breasts, one at a time, in the flour-salt mixture.
  6. Step 6

    Once you're ready to cook the chicken, heat a medium-sized nonstick pan with a little vegetable or canola oil. Pan-fry the chicken breasts for several minutes on each side until cooked through—the internal temperature will register 165 F.
  7. Step 7

    Spread mayonnaise on the hamburger buns. Line the bottom of the bun with romaine lettuce, add a chicken breast, provolone cheese, and then spoon on some of the remaining chile sauce. Serve immediately with a fresh green salad to cool the palate.
