Mango Chicken Burger

Mango Chicken Burger
  • Salt & pepper
  • 2 chicken breasts, roughly chopped
  • 2 tsp grated ginger
  • 2 tsp crushed garlic
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped (remove the seeds if you don't want it too hot)
  • 3 tbsp chopped coriander
  • 2 tbsp chopped mint
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 2 slices of white bread, crumbed

To serve
  • 2 tbsp zero fat Greek style yoghurt
  • 2 large brioche buns, split in half and toasted
  • 4 gem lettuce leaves, roughly torn
  • 4 slices of tomato
  • 4 cucumber ribbons, sliced with a vegetable peeler
  • 2 tbsp mango chutney

Method:
Place the chicken, ginger, garlic, chilli, coriander, zest and juice of the lime and breadcrumbs into a food processor.  Season with salt and pepper and blitz until everything is well blended.

Shape the mixture into two large patty's and place under the grill for 6-10 minutes each side or until cooked through and lightly golden.

To serve, spread the yoghurt onto the base of each of the buns, top with lettuce, tomato and the cucumber ribbons.  Place the burger on top, spread over the mango chutney and top with the bun lid.

I served this with my Halloumi fries and boy did this dish go down a treat.  The herbs, lime and chilli really made for a fresh zingy tasting burger.  The recipe is taken from Joe Wicks, The fat-loss plan which contains plenty of great recipes to eat in conjunction with his workouts which I will be giving a try over the coming months so watch this space for more of his tasty yet healthy recipes.
