BBQ Chicken Burger
2 chicken breasts
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp hoisin sauce
1 tbsp honey
Quarter tsp ginger (fresh grated)
Half red onion (55g) chopped
Half tsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, crushed
225g minced chicken
20g breadcrumbs; 1 tsp chopped; parsley
Chicken stock cube
Mix together the soy, hosin, honey and ginger and set aside.
Sauté half the red onion for six to seven minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl and cool slightly, then mix in the chicken. Add half a crumbled stock cube, breadcrumbs, parsley and salt and pepper to taste.
Form into four burgers and arrange the chicken burgers in a barbecue basket.
Cook over medium hot coals for five minutes each side, until cooked thoroughly.
Medium hot coals means you should be able to hold your hand over the BBQ comfortably for 10 seconds. Brush tops with teriyaki sauce, turn and cook 1 minute, brush with sauce again, turn and cook a further minute. Repeat brushing and turning once more on each side then serve.
