Essentials recipe This hearty American chicken burger is the perfect burger recipe for enjoying in the summer months cooked on the BBQ. It only takes 35 mins to prepare and cook, so you'll have a delicious chicken burger in no time! This recipe serves 4 people, so it's ideal if you're cooking an al fresco BBQ meal for your family. To give these burgers a special crunch, we toast the ciabatta rolls before assembling the burger - trust us, it'll make all the difference. Then all you have to do is layer up the toppings on top of the grilled chicken breast - mayo, tomato, lettuce, bacon and avocado, and chilli jam. Serve with chips, homemade 'slaw and freshly prepared salad. The kids will love it!
