    Kimchi mayo chicken burgers

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes

    Serves: 2


    Pack of 2 (about 300g) Waitrose & Partners No.1 Free Range Chicken Breast Fillets
    1 tbsp Cooks’ Ingredients Kimchi Paste
    1 tsp wok oil
    1 large carrot, shredded with a julienne peeler or by hand
    ½ onion, shredded
    2 tsp caster sugar
    2 tsp Chinese rice vinegar
    ½ x 28g pack coriander, a few sprigs set aside, remainder roughly chopped
    1 small garlic clove, crushed
    2 tbsp Heinz Seriously Good Mayonnaise
    2 brioche burger buns, split


    1. Make a horizontal cut partway through the fattest part of each chicken breast fillet, then open the meat out a little (to make sure the chicken is an even thickness and will cook evenly). Put on a plate with 1 tsp kimchi paste and ½ tsp oil; coat well.

    2. Toss the carrot with the onion, sugar, vinegar, chopped coriander, garlic and a pinch of salt. Toss with your hands to encourage the sugar to dissolve. Mix the mayonnaise and remaining 2 tsp kimchi in a separate bowl.

    3. Heat the remaining 1 tsp oil in a non-stick frying pan. Fry the chicken for 5 minutes on each side over a medium heat, until golden and cooked through, the juices run clear and no pink meat remains. Set aside on a board to rest for a few minutes. Wash out the pan, then add the buns, cut-side down, and toast for a minute or so. Spoon some of the mayonnaise onto the bottom of each burger bun, then top with the chicken, a pile of salad and more mayonnaise. Finish with a few whole coriander leaves. 

    Cook’s tip
    The lightly pickled slaw and mayo will also partner perfectly with prawns or crisp tofu.
