Grilled chilli chicken and slaw burgers

Grilled chilli chicken and slaw burgers



  • 80g Asian chilli jam
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1.5 tsp sesame oil
  • Pack of chicken fillets (3 per person)
  • 150g mayonnaise 
  • 1/2 tbsp lime zest
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 1 white baguette 
  • 150g shredded cabbage
  • 1 carrot shredded
  • Handful coriander leaves chopped
  • 1 small red chilli finely chopped
  • Lime wedges to serve

Method :-
Place the chilli jam, soy sauce and 1 tsp sesame oil and chicken in a bowl, mix to combine, cover and place in the fridge for 20 minutes.  Add the mayonnaise, lime zest, juice and remaining sesame oil to a bowl and and mix together and set aside.  Preheat a char-grill pan over a medium heat, brush with olive oil.  Cook the chicken for 5 minutes each side or until cooked through.  Spread the baguette with the mayonnaise and fill with the chicken, cabbage, carrot, coriander and chilli.  Serve with the lime wedges.  I accompanied this with oven fries topped with umami rush and some extra mayo on the side.  Really tasty Saturday night dinner, fresh and zingy and left me wanting me more.
