If you love a burger but want to find a healthy alternative try this one using lower-fat ingredients


  • 2lb boneless and skinless chicken
  • 1/4tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 an onion, finely diced
  • 60g breadcrumbs
  • 4-6 tsp water
  • 1tsp salt and
  • Pepper to taste
You will also need:

  • Non-stick spray or cooking oil that's low in saturated fat e.g. olive oil
  • Hamburger buns (wholemeal)
  • Your choice of fillings

Just swap the chicken for lean fillet of beef if you fancy turning this recipe into a beef burger


  1. Cut the chicken into 1-2 inch pieces, removing all fat.
  2. Blend the chicken in a food processor then add the chicken to a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Add in the spices, breadcrumbs, onion and the water then mix together with your hands. The mixture will hold together but won't be sticky.
  3. Chill the chicken mixture for an hour if possible then divide the mixture and shape into 10-12, 1/2in thick burgers.
  4. Add non-stick spray or a small amount of cooking oil to your frying pan and heat on a medium to low heat.
  5. Cook each burger for 4-6 mins on each side or until the burger is cooked through to the middle (not pink) and is golden in colour.
  6. To make the burger: place each chicken burger onto one half of a burger bun.
  7. Add in any filling of your choice.
  8. Close the burger and enjoy!
