Recipe Ingredients

We all know that takeaway burgers are super convenient but nothing beats the taste and satisfaction of making them yourself.

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp finely grated ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • ½ tsp Gregg's Lemon Pepper Seasoning
  • 400g skinless chicken breast fillets (2 × 200g pieces)
  • 4 burger buns, cut in half and toasted
  • ½ cup HEINZ [SERIOUSLY] GOOD™ Peri Peri Mayonnaise
  • 1 red onion, sliced into thin rings
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, peeled into ribbons*
  • 1 cup fresh coriander leaves

Recipe Method

  1. Combine the olive oil, ginger, garlic, chilli, parsley and Gregg’s Lemon Pepper Seasoning in a small bowl.
  2. Slice the chicken breast fillets in half horizontally to form 2 thin fillets. Place the chicken fillets into a shallow dish. Rub the herb and spice mix into the chicken. Cover and refrigerate the chicken for 30 minutes to marinate.
  3. Cook on a preheated BBQ over medium heat, for 10–12 minutes, turning once during cooking, or until the chicken is cooked. Alternatively cook in a dash of oil in a frying pan.
  4. Spread each burger bun base with HEINZ [SERIOUSLY] GOOD™ Peri Peri Mayonnaise. Top with a chicken fillet, red onion, cucumber and coriander. Top with the bun lid and serve.

* To make cucumber ribbons, use a potato peeler to peel off long, thin strips.
** Instead of burger buns, try pita bread, wraps or slices of Turkish bread.
