  • 1 clove garlic minced (4g)
  • 1 ounce onion finely diced (35g)
  • 1 tablespoon tomato puree
  • 1 tablespoon chili pepper fresh, mild/medium, chopped (6g)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper cracked (or to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon parsley chopped (4g)
  • 1 tablespoon ghee for frying (or olive oil or avocado oil)


  • ½ cup red cabbage (35g)

  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 pinch chili flakes chipotle (start small and increase to taste)

  • Place the chicken in a food processor along with the garlic and onion. Blitz to combine. Transfer to a bowl and mix with the tomato puree, chili, salt, pepper and parsley until combined.
  • Press into two burger patties or use a burger press. Add the ghee to a non stick frying pan. Fry the chicken burgers for about 3 - 4 minutes per side on low / medium heat (6 - 8 minutes in total) or until cooked through. Make sure the heat is not too high so you do not burn the outside.

  • In a clean small bowl, mix the mayo ingredients together using a spoon. Stir through the slaw, keeping about 1.5 tablespoon back to add on top of the burgers.


  • Serve burgers with mayo and top with slaw.


  • Best served fresh or can be stored in Tupperware in the fridge for up to 1 day and the burgers reheated.
