Jerk Mango Burger
MAJOR KEY: You can use a wet jerk seasoning to make sure the chicken isn't dry. Also, I use chicken thigh in this recipe because it will turn out a lot more moist than chicken breast.
2 boneless skinless thighs
Few thyme sprigs, leaves picked
2 tbsps. jerk seasoning
Juice 1 lime
2 sandwich bread rolls
½ cup fresh sliced mango
½ cup guacamole or 1 sliced avocado
¼ cup shredded lettuce (Little Gem, Butter, Romaine, etc.)
4 slices Manchego cheese (or your favorite melting cheese)
- Put the chicken breasts in between pieces of cling film and bash with a rolling pin to flatten. Mix together the thyme, oil, jerk seasoning and half the lime juice in a bowl. Add the chicken and leave to marinate for 30 mins.
- Heat a griddle pan until hot and cook the chicken for 4-5 mins each side or until cooked through. Remove from the heat. Meanwhile, toast the cut sides of the buns for 1-2 mins.
- Time to assemble! Feel free to spread mayo, mustard or your favorite condiment on the bun first. Put the cheese on the bun first, then the hot chicken, mango and guacamole or avocado and a handful of lettuce. Squeeze over the rest of the lime and top with mayo and ketchup, if you like. Don’t share, you earned it!
