Makes 6 burgers
The lean option for all burger lovers. Chicken breasts, when butterflied and flattened, are much easier to cook perfectly. The Braai & Grill Seasoning gives colour and the Smokey Chipotle BBQ Sauce, onions and tomatoes elevates it to a gourmet burger.

You will need

6 chicken breast fillets
2 – 3 t (10 – 15 ml) Ina Paarman’s Braai & Grill Seasoning
olive oil
6 sesame buns
fresh rocket
1 onion, sliced into fine rings
Ina Paarman’s Smokey Chipotle BBQ Marinade & Baste OR Sweet Chilli Chutney
2 ripe tomatoes, sliced into rings


Butterfly each breast by cutting lengthways into the thickest side of the fillet, making sure not to cut right through.
Open and press with the palm of your hand to flatten the breasts to an even thickness. Season on both sides with Braai & Grill Seasoning and drizzle with olive oil.
Prepare the braai or preheat a cast iron griddle pan until smoking hot. Place the oiled breasts on the braai or griddle pan and press down to emphasise grill marks. Cook until the first side is nicely marked, then turn and sear the other side. Don’t overcook, 2 – 3 minutes per side is fine.
Slice the buns in half and toast the cut sides. Layer in the following order: rocket, onion rings, chicken, Smokey Chipotle BBQ Marinade & Baste or Sweet Chilli Chutney, tomato, more onion and more rocket. Top with seeded half of bun.
