Chicken Burger

These Cajun Chicken Burgers are a fantastic treat to cook for your friends and family, and can be prepared and cooked in less than 40 minutes!

To coincide with National Burger Day, we give you this delicious recipe for Cajun Chicken Burgers. This recipe includes Cajun spiced chicken, smoked bacon, topped with avocado, cheese and spinach leaves. We recommend serving these burgers with some mayonnaise on the side!



For the Burgers

  • 4 skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 rashers of smoked bacon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 avocados
  • 4 ciabatta rolls, cut in half
  • 4 slices of a cheese of your choice
  • 4 small handfuls of spinach leaves
  • Mayonnaise to serve on the side (optional)

For the Cajun Seasoning

  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 1 tbsp paprika


Step 1- Mix the ground cumin, ground coriander and paprika together in a large dish, and add salt and pepper to your own taste!

Step 2- Set your grill to high and then flatten out the chicken slightly on a chopping board. Add half of the olive oil to the chicken, and completely cover the chicken with the seasoning of cumin, coriander, paprika, salt and pepper.

Step 3- Heat the other half of the oil in a frying pan, and add the seasoned chicken to the pan, sizzling the chicken for 5 minutes on each side. Leave the chicken to one side of the pan, and add the bacon until it is cooked.

Step 4-As the chicken continues to cook in the pan, halve, peel and remove the stones from the avocados. Toast the ciabatta rolls and ass the cheese you have chosen to them, before putting them under the grill until melted. We love some smoked applewood cheese to compliment the smoked bacon.

Step 5- Here is where the fun starts! You can start constructing your burger in any way that you want! Don’t forget the avocado or the mayonnaise as this really compliments the flavours!

Step 6- Now all there is left to do is enjoy these sizzling pieces of heaven! Enjoy!
