  • Courses


Makes 6 patties

Make tasty takeaways that the whole family will enjoy. Adding oats to the outside of the patties gives them a crunchy fibre boost, while soaking the breadcrumbs stops the patties from drying out during cooking.

It is funny how my kids put more salad bits into their burgers when they construct them!

  • 500g chicken mince
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic
  • 1 tsp Thai green curry paste
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ cup panko breadcrumbs, soaked in ¼ cup milk
  • ¾ cup instant rolled oats, crushed
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 1 tbsp sour cream
  • 6 burger buns


Beetroot slices, tomato slices, fresh lettuce leaves, sprouts, tasty cheese, grated carrot,
red onion, pickles, etc.

1 Combine the chicken mince, onion, garlic, curry paste, cumin, salt and soaked breadcrumbs. Mix well and divide into patties. Roll in the combined oats and sesame seeds, then chill until required for cooking.

2 Mash the avocado with the sweet chilli sauce and sour cream, and season. Preheat a grill pan or barbecue. Spray patties with oil and cook over a medium to low heat for 3-4 minutes each side until golden and cooked all the way through.

3 Serve the patties with the toasted buns and different topping options, then let everyone build their burger.
