    Ingredients

    • 600g chicken thighs, roughly chopped
    • handful fresh coriander or parsley
    • 2 tsp cajun spice blend
    • 1 tbsp mayonnaise, plus extra to serve
    • 1 tbsp light olive oil
    • 2 large tomatoes, chopped

    • 1-2 jalapeño chillies from a jar, chopped
    • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
    • 1-2 tsp lemon juice

    Method

    • Put the chicken into a food processor with the herbs, spice blend and mayo, then season and blitz well. Tip out the mixture onto a board and divide into 4 patties.

    • Set aside in the fridge, well covered, if not cooking immediately.

    • Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and cook the burgers for 15-20 mins, turning until cooked all the way through.

    • Meanwhile, make the salsa by mixing together the tomatoes, avocado, jalapeño chillies, oil and lemon juice. Serve the burgers in a bun with a little mayonnaise and the salsa spooned over the top.
