Peri-Peri Chilli Chicken Burgers

This burger is great for those days you just don't want to cook anything. You can either buy a pre-cooked roast chicken or buy yourself some chicken breasts and cook it up on the grill (George Foreman or something similar) or just pan fry. We used roast chicken for the above photo. These burgers were prepared by Foofer and his buddy Dilshan.


Pre-cooked Roast Chicken or chicken breast, grilled/pan fried.
Burger Buns
Tomatoes, sliced
Avocado, either mashed or sliced
Lettuce, sliced
Tomato Sauce
Peri-Peri Sauce Hot or Mild (This is a must!)


1. If you are using chicken breast, slice it into thinner strips and cook whichever way you like.

2. Toast your buns

3. Butter buns, add tomato sauce, lettuce, tomato, chicken, avocado, tomato sauce and peri-peri sauce, top with mayonnaise and there you have it, your very own burger. Very easy and very yummy!

Cracked Wheat (Bulgur) Pilaf


1 onion, diced
2 green chilli peppers (omit if you don't like chilli or you can substitute with red capsicum), diced
4 ripe Tomatoes, peeled and diced
1/2 cup cracked wheat (bulgur), washed
2 tablespoons Canola Oil (Olive oil if you prefer)
2 cups hot water
1 cube chicken stock powder, or use chicken stock if on hand (optional)


1. Sweat the onion and peppers in the oil, add the tomatoes and cook on low heat crushing the tomatoes as you cook it.

2. Pour in the hot water and boil up the tomatoes, then turn the flame to low heat and add in the bulgur, let it simmer for 10 minutes.

3. Finally mix in the chicken stock powder and season with salt. I don't like my bulgur pilav too dry so i turn off the heat when its a little juicy.

I usually serve this dish with some chicken. In this instance I marinated some chicken drumsticks and potatoes with paprika,olive oil, salt and pepper and cooked in an oven bag for 1.5 hours at 180c.
