3 tbsp sesame seeds
2 tbsp olive oil
4 Burger Buns

Preparation method
  • For the burgers, heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat.
  • Add the onion and fry until soft.
  • Place the softened onions, chicken breast, garlic, chilli and salt and freshly ground black pepper into a food processor and blend to a coarse paste. You can also do this with a mortar pestle.
  • Remove the chicken mixture from the blender and, with floured hands, roll into small burger shapes.
  • Roll the chicken burgers in sesame seeds to coat.
  • Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat.
  • Flatten patties slightly, and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and completely cooked through.
  • For the Thai-style dipping sauce, place the sugar and water in a small saucepan over a medium heat.
  • When the sugar dissolves, add the chilli and orange juice and cook over a high heat for five minutes, until reduced to thick syrup.
  • Add the spring onion and pour into a small dipping bowl.
  • Slit the buns in middle. Heat butter on a skillet and sear the buns on the flat side.
  • Slice the tomato thinly.
  • Place a cheese slice, lettuce, tomato and patty on the bun and secure with a toothpick if needed.
  • To serve, place the burgers onto a small plate with the dipping sauce and lime wedges served alongside.
