Lime & Chilli Chicken Burger with Greek Yogurt Guacamole

Lime & Chilli chicken burger with Greek yogurt guacamole


  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • Olive oil
  • Small bunch of coriander, roughly chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2cm piece of ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tbsp Greek natural yoghurt
  • 2 burger buns
  • Lettuce and tomato slices to serve


Method: 
In a small blender blitz 1 tbsp olive oil, half the lime juice, coriander and garlic with all the lime zest, chilli and ginger, then season.  Pour this over the chicken and leave to marinate for 30 minutes.  Mash the remaining garlic, coriander and lime juice with the avocado, add the yoghurt and season, then mix thoroughly.
Heat a griddle pan until very hot, wipe any excess marinade off of the chicken and cook for around 5 minutes each side or until cooked through (cut into the chicken to check for any pinkness!).  Toast your burger buns and fill with the guacamole, lettuce and tomato, topping off with the chicken breast. 

This really is so quick and easy to prepare which belies how tasty this is!  Perfect with a good old portion of chips, just what you need after a hard day at work!  If it’s a bit carb heavy you can omit the burger buns and use lettuce to wrap around the chicken, guacamole and tomato (notice I didn’t say omit the chips lol).  Enjoy!
