Description

Delicious kid-friendly burgers made with chicken thighs and grates apple, all from the essential Waitrose range.


Ingredients

Burgers:

  • 350g skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 small apples, grated and the juice squeezed out
  • 1/2 white onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed or grated
  • 1 medium egg
  • 3 sage leaves
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • burger buns, lettuce and tomato to serve

Potato Wedges

  • 2 large baking potatoes
  • 1/2 tbsp oil
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Put the chicken thighs into a food processor and blitz until the meat has broken down.
  2. Add the grated apple, onion, garlic, egg and sage leaves. Season with salt and pepper and blitz again until all the ingredients are well combined.
  3. Spread the flour out onto a plate and then using your hand mould the chicken mixture into four burgers, coating on both sides with the flour.
  4. Chill the burgers in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up.
  5. In the meantime wash the potatoes and cut them into wedges. Toss in the oil, season with salt and pepper and then bake in the oven at 200c for approximately 20 minutes.
  6. Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the burgers for about 6 minutes on either side until cooked through.
  7. Serve immediately with burger buns, lettuce and tomato.
