Dinner on the barbeque. What a concept. Who even invented that shit? Get this… cook your dinner, eat with your hands, avoid heaps of cleaning up – especially because it’s not even inside… unless you were me about 12 years ago when I lived in a house with an electric cooktop and oven, so I dragged the bbq into the laundry and cooked dinner on that. Smoking the house out every time, but it was worth it. Here’s another question, who invented bloody electric cooktops? Asshole.

Deviating from the point again…

Dinner on the bbq. Tonight we make burgers. Chicken burgers. Primo chicken burgers my stylee. Let’s go, as Rancid once said. Punk rock as fuck!

PS the chicken burger in the photo is the “inside” version just cos that’s all I had a photo of. It’s the same except the chicken is crumbed and fried instead of bbq’ed.

Chicken Burgers (for four)
4 150g pieces of free-range chicken breast, cut into escallops* or tapped out a little with a meat mallet
4 rashers bacon
4 slices fresh pineapple, peeled and cored
4 slices of cheese, whatever is your fav right now
4 burger buns
sliced tomato, lettuce and aioli or mayonnaise to serve… and sriracha chilli sauce if you love some

Get your hot plate hot. It’s called a hotplate… make it hot! Season the chicken with salt and pepper and put it on, along with the bacon and pineapple. As the tasty morsels are cooked to your liking, put them on a plate next to the bbq to stay warm. Or, if you have a bbq with a hood and the little heat rack up the back, put it on that. In the mean time put the buns on for a few seconds to warm.

Now all that’s left is to put those puppies together and eat.

*escallop. A thin slice of meat. I don’t know what else I can say about that.
