Instructions
  1. Add the chicken to a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil. Add the garlic, minced chipotle chilies in adobo, chili powder, smoked paprika, cumin, brown sugar and a pinch of both salt and pepper. Toss well to combine, making sure all the chicken gets coated in seasonings.
  2. Heat a large thick based pan over medium high heat. Once hot, add the chicken and sear on both sides, about 2-4 minutes per side. Reduce the heat slightly and pour in the beer + apple cider. Scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, cover and simmer for 25-30 minutes or until the chicken is tender and cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, make the salsa. Add the chopped apple, pomegranate arils, jalapeño, corriander, lime juice and sweet thai chili sauce to a bowl. Toss well to combine, taste and adjust if needed. Cover and store in the fridge until ready to serve.
  4. Once the chicken is done cooking, remove it from the pot and shred with two forks. Meanwhile reduce the sauce that is left in the pot down to about 3/4 of a cup. Add the shredded chicken back to the sauce in the pot and toss. Now add the enchilada sauce and continue to cook about 2 minutes or until warmed through. If the sauce gets too thick, add a splash of apple cider.
  5. To serve, add the shredded chicken to a warmed tortilla. Top with cheddar, avocado and then the apple salsa. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and chopped corrainder.

Instructions
  1. For the onion and mushroom mix, heat a frypan over high heat. Add coriander seeds, Sichuan peppercorns and a pinch of whole black peppercorns, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 1-2 minutes or until toasted. Using a mortar and pestle, pound spice mixture to a fine powder and set aside until needed.
  2. Place onion and butter in a saucepan over medium heat and cook, covered, stirring every 5 minutes, for 30-40 minutes or until soft and translucent. Add vinegar and cook, uncovered, stirring regularly, for 15 minutes or until caramelised, then keep warm (if onions start to dry out during first stage of cooking, add vinegar earlier).
  3. Heat a large frypan over high heat. Toss mushrooms with oil in a bowl and season. Add mushrooms to pan and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes each side or until starting to caramelise. Transfer to a cutting board and, when cool enough to handle, coarsely chop. Transfer chopped mushroom to a bowl and toss through onion mixture, egg yolks and spice mix.
  4. When ready to serve, heat a barbecue or chargrill pan to high heat. Brush haloumi with oil and grill for 2 minutes each side or until grill marks appear. Spread butter on faces of buns and grill, butter-side down, for 1-2 minutes or until grill marks appear.
  5. Place a few haloumi slices on base of each bun. Spoon over a generous amount of onion and mushroom mix, and scatter with thyme leaves. Top with bun lids and serve immediately.
