  • 400g oven chips (optional)
  • 380g pack Essential British Chicken Breast Fillets
  • 2 tsp Essential Olive Oil, for drizzling
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 4 brioche burger buns, split
  • 4 tsp French’s Classic Yellow Mustard
  • 2 gherkins or 4 cocktail gherkins, sliced
  • 1 Essential Little Gem Lettuce, leaves separated
  • ½ x 300g pack yogurt dressed coleslaw, plus extra to serve, if liked


  1. Preheat the oven and cook the chips according to pack instructions. Meanwhile, put the chicken breasts between 2 sheets of baking parchment and bash with a rolling pin until around 1cm thick. Cut each breast in ½, then drizzle with olive oil, season and evenly scatter both sides with the oregano.

  2. Heat a large, heavy-based frying pan or griddle pan over a high heat until hot. Cook the chicken, pressing down on it with a spatula, for 3 minutes each side, until golden and crisp on the outside, with no pink meat and juices that run clear. Leave to rest on a plate covered with foil, then toast the buns, cut-side down, in the pan for a minute or so.

  3. To assemble, spread the bun bases with some mustard, then add gherkin slices and a chicken breast piece. Top with lettuce leaves and a couple of spoonfuls of coleslaw, then the bun lid. Serve with the chips, if using, and extra coleslaw on the side.
