Chicken Burger With Avocado
INGREDIENTS (Serves 4) ◆ 1 shallot, diced
◆ 1tsp wholegrain mustard
◆ 1 large egg
◆ 400g chicken breast fillets, finely chopped or minced
◆ 50g fresh breadcrumbs
◆ 2tbsp sunflower oil
◆ 4 hamburger buns
◆ 50g rocket, washed
◆ 1 red onion, sliced
◆ 1 ripe avocado, halved, peeled and sliced
◆ 1 beefsteak tomato, cored and sliced
◆ 50g blue cheese, eg Roquefort/Stilton
◆ 4tbsp quark
◆ 1tbsp chives, snipped
◆ Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1Thoroughly mix shallot, mustard, egg and chicken mince in a mixing bowl. Add enough breadcrumbs to form a pliable mixture. Season well. Divide and shape into four patties, imprinting your thumb in the middles; this will help prevent the burgers from expanding in the middle.
2Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a moderate heat until hot. Add patties and fry on all sides for 7-8min until golden-brown; their centres should register at least 74°C on a meat thermometer. Remove from the pan; cover loosely with foil.
3Toast burger buns under a grill. Top the lower halves with rocket, red onion, avocado and tomato slices. Sit the burgers on top. In a small bowl, mash blue cheese with a fork then stir in the quark and chives. Place a dollop on each burger. Serve with the tops of the buns on the side.
