If you are looking for something quick, easy, and healthy for a meal, how about Peri Peri Chicken Burgers?
The other night people were in and out, I was not sure how many were eating so I decided to get some chicken breasts and some rolls and make chicken burgers. "The Darlings" don't like spicy - so I didn't marinate theirs in the perir peri sauce - but it still made for an easy dinner.
Peri Peri Chicken Burgers
1 double chicken breast, sliced in half horizontally
2 tbs Peri Peri Sauce * see photo
3 cloves of crushed garlic
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tbs olive oil
1/2 bunch coriander leaves, chopped
freshly ground pepper
Combine all the above ingredients in a bowl, add the chicken pieces and marinate for at least an hour.
To cook, you can either pan fry (which is what I did) or you can char grill on the BBQ.
To serve, top the bun with Perinaise (see photo), lettuce, tomato, avocado, and pickled cucumbers. Add sauce of choice - sweet chilli of course, and enjoy!!!
1 cucumber, shaved into ribbons
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
1 red chilli, finely diced
1 tbs caster sugar
Place the rice wine vinegar, sugar and chilli in a bowl.
To shave the cucumber into ribbons, use a vegetable peeler. Add the cucumber to the vinegar mixture. Marinate for as long as you marinate the chicken.
How's that for a simple dinner?
Food has been a bit of a non event in this house this week - must still be in a funk about my oven!!! Every time I think of a recipe I have to remind myself - No Oven!!! I attempted to make sweet potato rosti last night - they looked nothing like the photo, and were a bit of a disaster - so won't even bother sharing that recipe!!
I am trying to get myself out of the funk tonight - have just been shopping and have multiple choices for dinner tonight - will see what I feel like cooking when I get all the groceries away!! (probably nothing!!)
Dear Readers do you ever get in food funks? How do you get out of it? Me .... I am hoping someone comes up with a website that tells me what to we are having, plans it all, buys it all (and cooks it all!!!!) LOL - wouldn't that be great!!
