Chicken Burger and Grilled Asparagus

Tonight I tried a new recipe lemon Chili chicken burgers. Instead of french fries we had grilled asparagus. I also tried homemade mayonaise. The meal got a thumbs up from the family. This is a great twist on hamburgers and fries.

Chili and Lemon Chicken Burgers
Serves 4

1 tsp. dried chili flakes
1 c. lemon juice (fresh)
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 c. olive oil
sea salt and cracked black pepper
4 burger buns, halved
4 chicken breast fillets,
4 iceburg lettuce leaves
mayonnaise, to serve

1. Place the chili flakes, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper in a bowl and stir to combine. Place the chicken in a separate bowl and pour over half the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

2. Heat a char-grill pan or barbecue over high heat. (I used a saute pan) Brush the burger bun halves with some of the reserved marinade and char-grill or barbecue for 1-2 minutes or until toasted. Set aside. (I used regular butter as I had forgotten to set aside half of the marinade) Char-grill or barbecue the chicken for 4 minutes each side, or until cooked through. Top the buns with the lettuce, mayonnaise and chicken and spoon over remaining marinade to serve.

Recipe from Donna Hay magazine, Issue 37.
