SOY & SESAME SIMPLY CHICKEN BURGER
Serves: 
2

2 x 114g HECK! Simply Chicken burgers

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp mirin (Japanese rice wine)

1 tbsp runny honey

Spritz of lo-cal oil

1 romaine lettuce heart

Half a cucumber

Bunch spring onions

250g wholegrain rice cooked

½ tbsp toasted sesame seeds

Drizzle of sesame oil to serve

Marinating a burger is a great way of adding more flavour. This simple mix ends up reducing to a lip-smacking sauce and you’ll wonder why you ever did anything so boring as pop a burger in a bun!  

Whisk together the soy sauce, mirin and honey and pour over the burgers.  Coat with the marinade and leave for 5 minutes turning regularly.

To cook, spritz a shallow pan with lo-cal oil and cook the burgers over a medium heat for 5-6 minutes each side.  Now pour over the marinade and finish cooking the burgers for a further 4-5 minutes.  If the sauce starts to reduce too much, add a splash of water to keep it moist.

For the salad, slice the cucumber and spring onion into batons and mix with the wholegrain rice.  Pour the sauce from the pan over the salad and mix again.  Use a couple of leaves of romaine lettuce on each plate to ‘hold’ the burger, then divide the rice salad between 2 plates and top with the burgers.  Finish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds and a drizzle of sesame oil.
