Paleo homemade chicken burgers

Written by , Posted in Mains


Hellooooo interwebs!

I wish I was more on top of the trending/blogging/web-o-sphere content – I KNOW I should be posting something about Easter recipes or eggs or something but I am so behind with everything here. Bad planning. But – this could easily translate into a lamb burger and then its totally Easter orientated ;)

Ok so, this is a recipe I made WEEKS ago for a friend of mine for dinner :) We are both following the paleo lifestyle and we decided to have dinner in one night and I thought – I reeeeeallyyy feel like a chicken burger and chips! So I went online and checked out some recipes and this is what the end result was :) Inspired by the Woolworths Roasted Butternut Burger

— Recipe —


500gr ground chicken (can get free range minced chicken from Pick ‘n Pay)

1 avo chopped into small pieces
50gr sundried tomatoes
salt, basil, oregano, paprika
1 egg
sweet potato (1 extra large one – try to get one that is fairly evenly cylindrically shaped)
2 brinjals
Tomato, rocket, lemon juice – what ever you would like to add to your burgers!


*preheat the oven to 180*

Burger “buns”
Cut the sweet potato into discs – you decide how thick you want them – but you can see from my pics that mine were quite hefty, which worked nicely.
Roast the sweet potato with a bit of olive oil and salt for 45 minutes – turning them once halfway.

Burger patties
Mix the avo, spices (about a tablespoon of each will do), egg and sundried tomato into the ground chicken.
Form smallish patties (try judge the circumference of your sweet potato discs and match them).
Fry them up with some olive oil in a hot pan – about 3 minutes a side.

Slice the brinjal into thin chip-like-pieces.
Roast for 40 minutes – tossing/turning every 15 minutes or so.
Some of mine went more “crispy” than others, but on the whole they were not firm crispy chip-like at the end but still tasted delicious!

Construct your burgers and eat up!
