Cajun Fried Chicken Burger


  • 4 skinless chicken breasts

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 4 slices smoked bacon

  • 2 avocados

  • 4 ciabatta rolls

  • 4 slices of pepper jack cheese, choose your favorite brand

  • Baby spinach leaves, 4 small handfuls

  • Mayonnaise, to serve (optional


  1. Seasoning to taste with your favorite spices

  2. Gently flatten out the chicken (bash it gently with a rolling pin between two pieces of cling film), then drizzle with half of the oil and toss into the seasoning until completely coated.

  3. Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan. Sizzle the chicken for 5 minutes on each side, until firm. Push to one side of the pan, then fry the bacon for a few minutes until cooked (of course you could always grill it!).

  4. While the chicken is cooking, have, stone, peel and slice the avocados. Cut the ciabattas in half and toast the cut side of the buns. Cover the tops of the buns with cheese and grill until melted.

  5. Spread the bottom half of the bun with mayo (if using). Top with a handful of spinach, then a rasher of bacon. To keep the avocado in place, slice the chicken then alternate between a slice of avocado and chicken (I just cut almost through the chicken and push a slice of avocado into it).

  6. Top with the bun with melted cheese, press down lightly and serve with your favorite fries and salad!
