Peri Peri Chicken Burgers:
2teaspoonschilli flakes(or to taste)
4clovesgarliccrushed or grated
Juice of 2 limes
½teaspoonsalt(or to taste)
Black pepper to taste
4large boneless, skinless chicken thighs
To Serve (suggestions):
4large burger buns, split in two and toasted
Lettuce, sliced tomato and sliced onion
Roasted/barbecued corn on the cob(10-15 mins on BBQ/in hot oven)
Mix together all of the Peri Peri Chicken ingredients (apart from the actual chicken!) in a large bowl. Place the chicken in the bowl, turning to coat each piece of chicken with marinade. (You can do this in a ziplock bag if you don’t like getting your hands messy!)
Marinate the chicken for 2 hours in the fridge or up to 24 hours if you have the time. Alternatively, just continue with the recipe.
Heat your griddle/frying pan for 2 minutes over a high heat (or prepare your BBQ the usual way). Place the chicken in the pan/on the BBQ and cook for 4-6 minutes on each side (depending on thickness – you can check if your chicken is done by cutting into the thickest one – if it’s not raw and pink, you are good to go!).
Serve with all your favourite extras!
