Spicy Mexican Chicken Burger

Prep time


Cooking time




  • 1 chicken breast

  • 1 tsp chipotle paste

  • 1 lime, juiced

  • 1-2 slices cheese

  • 1 brioche bun, split

  • ½ avocado

  • 2 cherry tomatoes, chopped

  • 3-4 pickled jalapeño slices, chopped

  • ½ small garlic clove, finely grated


  • Put the chicken breast between two pieces of cling film and bash with a rolling pin or pan to about 1cm thick. Mix the chipotle paste with half the lime juice and spread over the chicken.
  • Heat a griddle pan over a high heat. Once hot, cook the chicken for 3 mins each side until cooked through, adding the cheese for the final 2 mins of cooking. Add the bun, cut-side down, to the griddle pan to toast lightly. Season the chicken.
  • Meanwhile, mash the avocado with the remaining lime juice. Stir in the cherry tomatoes, jalapeño and garlic, and season with a little salt. Spread over the base of the bun, then add the chicken followed by the top of the bun.
