Chicken mince makes for the easiest, leanest and juiciest burgers. I’ve added a sweet and spicy kick to this recipe to create a fun, tropical vibe. For the full Caribbean experience, add a slice of grilled pineapple to the burger and pop Bob Marley and the Wailers on!
Sweet & spicy chicken burgersPrint This
- 300g lean chicken mince
- ½ small red onion, finely diced
- ½ red chilli pepper, deseeded and finely chopped
- 60g sweetcorn
- 1 tbsp mango chutney
- 1 tbsp cornflour
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- Salt and black pepper
- TO SERVE:
- Sweet potato chips
Using your hands, combine all the ingredients apart from the coconut oil together in a large bowl. Form 4 even-sized burgers.
Place a frying pan over a medium – high heat and melt the coconut oil. Fry the burgers for about 5 minutes on each side until cooked right through.
For a fun alternative, you can make these into meatball-sized balls and serve them in wraps.
