CHICKEN BURGERS by Jennee

The weapon
The weapon (I’m not fricking shy of mayo on my burger)

I am sitting on the verandah, which is one of my all time favourite places to hang out after a hard day at work, watching all of the busy people drive by. It makes me smile. I’m smiling. Now I’m laughing. Laughing loudly like a mad scientist. Now I’ve had a valium and I’m a little more relaxed… Anyhow, I was drinking a tasty beverage or two (the aforementioned tasty beverage may be the holy amber fluid that takes memories from teenagers in the same vicious breath that it offers them crazy sex in the park out the back of the after-ball party), pondering my lack of energy and care factor today, and also the meal that shall be presented to me tonight.

That is well and truly enough about me.

Jennee has declared that we shall be eating chicken burgers with the same marinade she did last night (I must confess the vodka may have erased that memory while I was sleeping), bacon (effing luuuurve bacon on a burger… or just in my face), she mentioned something crazy about pineapple ‘slaw (which, to be absolutely honest, kinda freaked me out a little bit) and I think there was talk of chips… although I may have just made that last bit up…

The end result? I think when all was said and done (and burgers eaten and all that), the burger was almost nothing like what she had mentioned earlier. Except it did have the same marinade from last night… apparently. It was damn fine though… damn, damn fine.

CHICKEN BURGERS WITH ALL THE GOODS (for 4)

2 large free range chicken breasts sliced into escalopes (thin fillets), marinated in rosemary, paprika and some other stuff (recipe below)
4 rashers bacon
4 slices fresh pineapple
4 buns (we had Turkish rolls and they were quite tasty indeed)
lettuce, tomato, cheese, pickled chilli, herby mayo (recipe below)
• Grill the chicken breasts, on a cook top or bbq (Get your freedom of choice right here!), for 2-3 minutes each side until done. Set aside and cover with foil to keep warm
• Now grill the bacon and pineapple, and the buns if you like them toasted. I like toasty buns… mmmm
• Put everything out on the table for everyone to make their own burgers the way they want them

Marinade
1 tablespoon each paprika, chopped rosemary, lemon zest, sesame seeds
2 tablespoons olive oil
• Mix to combine

Herby mayo
1 cup of homemade (recipe here) or good store bought mayo
1 cup mixed herbs (I had my old faves; basil, parsley and mint), chopped
1 tablespoon capers, chopped
• Mix to combine

  1. Wow, now THAT’S a burger! The pineapple didn’t freak me out one bit. It goes wonderfully with chicken. I love that I can make this using all your ingredients! The only thing I have to change is the bun. Fantastic! 🙂
