Healthy Tasty Food - Jerk Chicken Burger

January 19, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Hungry, why not try a Jerk Chicken Burger recipe that I have found and it's only about 450 calories and will fill you up.

Flavour lean chicken with Jamaican-inspired spicy seasoning, griddle then and serve in a bread roll with mango, tomato, lettuce and sauce

Ingredients

2 skinless chicken breasts
few thyme sprigs, leaves picked
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp jerk seasoning
juice 1 lime
2 large bread rolls
½ small mango, stoned, peeled and sliced
1 tomato, sliced
1 Little Gem lettuce heart, shredded
2 tbsp mayonnaise and ketchup, to serve (optional)

 

Instructions

Put the chicken breasts in between pieces of cling film and bash with a rolling pin to flatten. Mix together the thyme, oil, jerk seasoning and half the lime juice in a bowl. Add the chicken and leave to marinate for 5 mins.

Heat a griddle pan until hot and cook the chicken for 4-5 mins each side or until cooked through. Remove from the heat. Meanwhile, toast the cut sides of the buns for 1-2 mins.

Put the chicken on the buns and top with the mango, tomato and a handful of lettuce. Squeeze over the rest of the lime and top with mayo and ketchup, if you like.

 

The Jerk Chicken once cooked should look like this.

 

And the burger once dressed with the mango, tomatoes and lettuce should look something similar to this.

 

I have never made this before and it takes only 10 minutes to make. I have to say, its one of the tastiest spicy burgers I have had in a while and the mango works really well with it. Highly recommended and I will be having this again! Yummy!
