BBQ Chicken Burgers
These sticky burgers can easily be rustled up on a warm evening for a last-minute barbecue.
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
4 rashers bacon (optional)
4 large burger buns, sliced in half
lettuce, tomato and red onion, to serve
For the sauce and marinade
4 tbsp tomato ketchup
4 tbsp brown sauce
splash chilli sauce (optional)
2 tsp clear honey
2 garlic cloves, crushed
Make the sauce and marinade by mixing everything together in a large bowl, then put a few spoonfuls aside. Slice halfway into the thickest part of each breast and open it up like a book. Flatten down slightly with your hand, then toss in the bowlful of marinade to coat. Chill for as little, or as long, as you have time to.
Barbecue the chicken for about 10 mins until completely cooked through, turning so it doesn’t burn but is nicely charred and sticky. Cook the bacon at the same time until crisp, if using, and toast the buns. Assemble the burgers with lettuce, slices of tomato, onion and the reserved sauce on the side for dolloping on top.
