  • 400g pack essential Waitrose British Chicken Breast Chunks
  • 70g pack Cooks' Ingredients Diced Smoked Pancetta
  • 1 small onion, very finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1 essential Waitrose baby avocado, halved and stoned
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 4 Waitrose Ciabatta Rolls, split
  • 50g bag Waitrose Wild Rocket
  • 150g bag Waitrose Sea Salt Hand Cooked Crisps


  1. Place the chicken in a food processor and whizz until finely minced. Add the pancetta, onion and rosemary and pulse once or twice until well mixed but not minced.

  2. Shape the mixture into four even-sized cakes. Cook under a medium grill for 6-7 minutes each side or in a griddle or frying pan for 5 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through with no pink meat.

  3. Mash together the avocado and mayonnaise. Transfer the burgers to a warm plate and quickly toast the inside of the ciabatta rolls.

  4. Pile some rocket on the base of each toasted bun and sit a burger on top. Spoon over the avocado mayonnaise and position the lid on top. Serve swiftly with a handful of crunchy crisps on the side.
