Cajun Chicken Burger

This has been another favorite grilling recipe this summer, these burgers have a lovely mild curry flavor.

Cajun Chicken Burgers

1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon paprika
Black pepper, to taste
2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
3 slices bacon, cut in half
2 slices Swiss cheese
2 Kaiser rolls
1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and sliced.
2 handfuls of mixed greens
  • Pre-heat BBQ to low
  • On a small plate mix together cumin, coriander, paprika, and black pepper.
  • Brush a piece of heavy-duty foil with a little olive oil. Cover chicken with plastic wrap and beat with a meat mallet or rolling pin until slightly flattened. Brush chicken with olive oil, and dip in the spice mix until coated, then place on foil.
  • Take another piece of foil, fold up the edges to make a small baking tray and add the bacon.
  • Put chicken and bacon on grill and cook for about 15 – 20 minutes, (grills vary so cook to desired doneness), bacon should be cooked until crisp.
  • Place cheese slices on top of chicken until cheese begins to melt. Toast buns at the same time.
  • Spread buns with mayo and top with the cheesy chicken and bacon. You can also add the salad greens and avocado to the buns if you like, but I prefer my salad on the side.

This burger sounds like a great combination of flavors and all the condiments you suggest to go with it. Nothing like a grilled hamburger! Thanks...

I was literally just thinking that I haven't had swiss cheese in a long while. Must be fate! I always cut my bacon in half before cooking it! How utterly cool that you cooked the bacon on the grill, too. I love curry, so I'm sure I'd pick up on the mild curry flavor here. YUM!

This chicken sandwich looks fantastic! Love that you grilled the bacon extra clean up for this spicy chicken and salad. Thanks Jan!
