Who wouldn’t crave for chicken burger at least once in a while?  I always rush to a nearby restaurant whenever I get the craving. But now,  I have  a really delicious way of making the chicken for the burger. I love my chicken grilled, rather than fried. So I  grilled the chicken on a skillet for this burger. Marinated the chicken with cumin powder, gave a smoky flavor to it. While grilling, I added pepper powder and lemon juice, which made it spicy and tangy. And the best part is it’s homemade burger.

For marination:

  • Chicken boneless( breast)- 4 fillets
  • Ginger-garlic paste- 2 tsp
  • Cumin powder- 1 tsp
  • Vinegar- 2 tsp
  • Salt- as required

Marinate the chicken fillet with the above ingredients and let stand for 15 minutes.

For grilling:

  • Butter(unsalted)- 2 tsp
  • Black Pepper powder- 4 tsp
  • Lemon juice- 3 tbsp

Preparation:

  • Heat a skillet and add the butter.
  • When the butter melts, sprinkle 2 tsp of pepper powder on to the skillet
  • Now place the marinated fillets over the pepper powder.
  • Pour 3 tbsp of lemon juice over the fillets.
  • Sprinkle 2 tsp of pepper powder over the fillet
  • Cover the pan with a lid and let cook over low flame until all the water evaporates and the chicken is well done. Once the chicken has cooked through, open the lid and let the chicken brown on both sides.

To build your burger:

  • Burger buns toasted
  • Pepper Chicken fillet-1
  • Tomato, sliced round- 1
  • Onions caramelized in butter- a few wedges
  • Pickled cucumber/Dill spears-1
  • Mayonnaise- to spread on the bun
  • Swiss cheese slice-1

Spread the buns with mayonnaise, place the pepper chicken fillet on the bun, top with tomato, caramelized onions, pickled cucumber, cheese and close with the other bun.

Now open your mouth as wide as possible and have the biggest bite of this Chicken burger. Voila, here is your homemade burger!

So now you don’t have to rush to a restaurant for chicken burger, you could make it in your own kitchen. You could also build this burger with your favorite veggies and cheese.
