Forget fast food restaurants and greasy pub meals – home-made chicken burgers are much tastier, particularly when they’re dusted in paprika and chilli flakes

1 individual, finely chopped

Fresh flat-leaf parsley

2 tbs, finely chopped

2 tsp

Dried chilli flakes

½ tsp

Skinless chicken breast

400 g, halved horizontally

Multigrain bread roll

4 medium, (1 x 50g roll), split

Light whole egg mayonnaise

1 tbs

Baby spinach leaves

2 cup(s), (40g)

Instructions

  1. Combine tomatoes, shallot and parsley in a small bowl. Set salsa aside. Combine juice, oil, paprika and chilli in a small bowl.
  2. Preheat a chargrill or barbecue over medium-high heat. Cook chicken, brushing with paprika mixture, for 3–4 minutes each side or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.

Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: green salad.TIP: To tell if chicken is cooked through, press it with a pair of tongs – it should feel quite firm. If unsure, cut a small slit in the thickest part and check for any pinkness.
