Sweet Chilli and Sour Cream Chicken Burgers
Fresh and golden chicken burgers filled with sweet chilli sauce, topped with sour cream and drizzled with extra sweet chilli, for some sweet spice in your life.
In this family, the amount of times we go through — and fight over — sweet chilli and sour cream chips is beyond any help we could get. I mean, those two flavours — the spice of chilli, the sweetness of the sauce plus the creaminess of sour cream is the best combination of flavours.
Sweet Chilli Flavour
Mixing sweet chilli sauce into the chicken patties creates an incredibly delicious chicken burger. Adding grated carrots and onions adds extra flavour and hidden goodness no take-away or fast food joint could compete with.
The best part? They are quick, easy to make and non-complicated burgers.
- Grill them or fry on a skillet.
- Make the patties into a big batch and freeze them, then reheat thawed patties when ready to serve.
- Serve as burgers or with a salad for a lower in carb version.
