For the sauce and marinade

  • 4 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 4 tbsp brown sauce
  • splash chilli sauce (optional)
  • 2 tsp clear honey
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed

Method

  1. Make the sauce and marinade by mixing everything together in a large bowl, then put a few spoonfuls aside. Slice halfway into the thickest part of each breast and open it up like a book. Flatten down slightly with your hand, then toss in the bowlful of marinade to coat. Chill for as little, or as long, as you have time to.

  2. Barbecue the chicken for about 10 mins until completely cooked through, turning so it doesn’t burn but is nicely charred and sticky. Cook the bacon at the same time until crisp, if using, and toast the buns. Assemble the burgers with lettuce, slices of tomato, onion and the reserved sauce on the side for dolloping on top.

A great BBQ chicken burger recipe. Needed a change from making hamburgers. Can recommend using smokey BBQ sauce instead of brown sauce. Plus added a slice of oak smoked cheddar too. Awesome burger, full of flavour and the chicken was succulent and juicy. Now it's gone and I want another!

I was looking for some new meal ideas as it has become too predictable in my house and i must say this was very tasty! I added thin shavings of parmesan cheese as i love bacon and cheese together deffinitely would recommend this, and leave it marinated for 1 night too.

Tasted great, replaced the garlic cloves with garlic puree. Also let the chicken breasts marinate over night in the fridge.

A question, what is the brown sauce? Is it just another way of saying BBQ sauce? Or is there actually called a 'brown sauce'?

The sauce was decent although I wouldn't really call it a "BBQ" one. But still a nice recipe and I like the idea of butterflying the chicken to cook it quicker.
