Chicken burger with avocado, bacon and garlic mayo

 Chicken burger with avocado, bacon and garlic mayo


  1. To make the chicken burgers, place the breadcrumbs in a medium bowl and pour over the milk.
  2. Add the mince, shallots, parsley and anchovies and season well.
  3. Use your hands to mix until well combined.
  4. Divide the mixture into 4 even portions and use slightly damp hands to shape each portion into a patty about 10cm in diameter and 2cm thick.

  5. Combine the mayonnaise, garlic, mustard and lemon juice in a small bowl and mix well. Set aside.
  6. Next, fry the bacon in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat for 2-3 mins each side or until well browned and crisp.
  7. Drain on a paper kitchen towel.

    Wipe out the pan with absorbent paper then add the oil and heat over medium heat until hot.
  8. Add the chicken burger and cook for 5 mins each side or until just cooked through.

  9. Meanwhile, preheat the grill to high. Place the bread rolls, cut-side up, on an oven tray and toast under preheated grill for 2-3 mins or until golden brown.
  10. To serve, spread the bottom of the rolls with half the mayonnaise mixture and top with lettuce, chicken burger, avocado and bacon. Season with freshly ground black pepper.
  11. Cover with the roll tops and serve immediately, accompanied by the remaining mayonnaise mixture.
