Cajun Chicken Burger.
This recipe for a Cajun Chicken Burger has been fabulous for me this week. I have been able to deliver an easy mid week meal that is delicious and puts a smile on everyone's lips.
A real crowd pleaser. It isn't really even a recipe such is it's simplicity. I can't believe I have never thought of cooking it before.
Perfect for when you really cannot be bothered to get your life together. It's a literal dusting then frying. Bob and Fanny would be ecstatic.
I use a rolling pin to bash the chicken breasts a bit flatter and to tenderise the meat.
I pop them in a freezer bag to do this. Otherwise an element of road kill might enter your kitchen. Chicken back splatter is never a good thing.
If you BBQ this cajun dusted chicken then oil the griddle.
I serve them with my classic coleslaw usually which I try to make beforehand. In the summer I usually have a bowl always in the fridge. You can't beat a bit of cold cabbage. Do take the time to shred the cabbage thinly.
Of course to avoid the calories you could ditch the bun and use a wrap instead. Load it with avocado and it's positively healthy.
I use the buns that I personally like the most. I have used a Brioche bun for the picture but to be honest I find most of the Brioche supermarket ones rather dry.
It would be a travesty to let the Bun spoil the moment. Pick wisely.
A lovely side to serve with this is my Potato Salad. Another dish that you can grab from the fridge for an easy midweek meal.

Cajun Chicken Burger and Coleslaw
This delicious recipe for Cajun Chicken Burger and Coleslaw is more of an assembly job. The spicy chicken breast marrys fabulously with the cool,crunchy coleslaw. Maximum result for little effort.
- 2 large chicken breasts
- 3 tbsp cajun seasoning not spicy
- oil for frying
- 4 burger rolls
Add all the coleslaw ingredients together and mix well. Cover and refrigerate.
Flatten out the chicken breasts a little with a rolling pin. About 3 cm thick. I do this in a large freezer bag. Add oil to a frying pan and heat the pan.
Dab the chicken breasts in the spices to give an even covering.
Fry for five mins or so each side until cooked through. I always cut a hole in the middle of the breast to check. Divide into 4.
Load up your buns with the chicken and top with coleslaw.
