This recipe began life as a chicken ball. Bursting with flavour, its outward appearance (pale and insipid) did little to promote its culinary virtues. I saw in it the potential for greater things however and thus set about turning it into a chicken burger. Full of flavour, the patty itself required very little attention, other than a commitment on my part to actually put pen to paper to record exactly what had been going into this recipe (it changes every time!). The accompanying slaw, dressing and peanut sauce are very new additions to this burger as I normally serve it with whatever might happen to be in the fridge at the time; cheese, lettuce, gherkins, grated carrot, cucumber, beetroot etc.
So don’t feel intimidated by the fact that this recipe is actually four in one. Forget the add-ons and just make the burger patties. Slap them between a good bun and then pile on whatever you have on hand. I happen to think that these are the best chicken burgers in the world. Ever.
