Chicken Burgers with Smashed Avocado


800g chicken thigh fillets
juice of 1 lime
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh coriander
1/4 cup finely chopped flat leaf parsley
3-4 cloves of garlic, crushed
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1tsp salt
2tbsp olive oil

Smashed avo:
2 avocados, smashed
1 clove of garlic, crushed
1/2 lime juice
1/3 cup fresh coriander leaves

Burger extras:
6 bread rolls
1 baby cos heart
1 red onion, cut into slices
cheese slices – I used Butterkase but haloumi would be amazing too
2 tomatoes, sliced

375g (usually 6) portabello mushrooms
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
6 slices of haloumi
olive oil


  • Trim any fat from chicken thigh fillets and place into a bowl. Marinade and set aside.
  • Prepare your smashed garlic avo, cover and refrigerate. Slice and prepare all your burger fillings in a plate, cover and refrigerate.
  • Pre heat oven to 200C fan forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper, place mushrooms on tray, season with S&P a light drizzle with olive oil, shredded cheese, sliced haloumi and a little more olive oil. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until cooked.
  • Place a non stick pan on medium high heat and grill chicken thigh pieces for approximately 5minutes each side, or until cooked through.
  • Assemble burgers. I love smashed garlic avo, chicken, lettuce, tomato, red onion, lettuce & cheese.



  • Soak sliced onion in chilled water while you prep to take the bite away, simply drain just before serving.
  • Oregano baked potato chips also taste amazing with these burgers.
  • If you do not like coriander, just leave/replace with flat leaf parsley.
