As I’ve said before, I don’t eat beef but we eat lots of chicken and we all love bacon. I find chicken burgers aren’t as greasy as other burgers and I know exactly what is going into them so I’m fine giving them to little ones. For the ground chicken, I put chicken breasts in a electic chopper.
450g ground chicken
1 onion, grated
1 garlic cloves, crushed
100g cheddar cheese, grated
1 tbsp dried parsley
8 bacon rashers
Salt and pepper
- Place the ground chicken, onion, garlic, cheese, parsley and salt and pepper in a food processor. Pulse it together until it is well mixed. Shape into 4 even burger shapes. Coat with flour, cover and chill in the fridge for 1 hour.
- Preheat oven to 200C/gas 6. Wrap each burger with 2 bacon rashers.
- Place on a baking tray and cook for 35-40 minutes, flipping them half way through.
If you don’t have a food processor, try using chicken mince.
