Chicken bacon burger
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
1 tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
6 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
8 rashers smoked streaky bacon
4 soft white rolls, split and toasted
6 tbsp mayonnaise
A good handful of baby salad leaves
1 small ripe avocado, sliced
1 Place the oil, garlic and thyme in a large bowl, season well and add the chicken. Combine well and allow to marinate for 15 minutes or cover and chill until needed.
2 Preheat the grill to medium high and line the grill pan with foil. Place the chicken thighs on the pan and cook for 15 minutes, turning occasionally until cooked through. Grill the bacon alongside the chicken for the last 5 minutes of cooking.
3 To serve, place a roll on each plate, spread the base with a little mayo, top with the salad leaves and then top with the chicken and a couple of rashers of bacon. Add some avocado slices and top with the roll.
If you’re using dried thyme instead of fresh just use a teaspoon as its flavour is very concentrated.
