  1. Mix the seasoning ingredients together with a good grinding of black pepper and a sprinkling of salt, then set aside in a large dish. Heat grill to high. On a board, flatten out the chicken slightly, then drizzle half the oil over and toss in the seasoning until completely coated. Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan, sizzle the chicken for 5 mins on each side until firm, push to one side of the pan, then fry the bacon for a few mins until cooked.

  2. While the chicken is cooking, halve, stone, peel and slice the avocados, and toast the cut sides of the buns. Cover the tops of the buns with cheese, then grill until melted.

  3. To assemble the burgers, spread the buns with mayonnaise if you want, top with a handful of spinach, then a rasher of bacon. To keep the avocado in place, slice the chicken, then alternate between a slice of chicken and avocado. Top with the bun, press down lightly and serve.

These were so tasty, my Mum and I loved them. So simple to make! I gave them a little longer than 5 minutes on each side, and we cut the buns in half once assembled which made them easy to eat too. I also skipped the bacon, just as a preference. Will definitely be making again!

I made this (without the cheese) but baked the chicken for half an hour instead and it came out beautifully juicy. Really enjoyed and will definitely be making again.

both my husband and i found this pretty bland once put together as a burger. Chicken seasoning on its own was ok. Wouldn't bother making this again was pretty dissapointed

expected this to be much nicer than it was. Although the seasoning on the chicken was tasty once put together to make the burger both my husband and myself thought it was pretty bland. It was ok but i wouldn't bother making it again

Excellent. Really really tasty, I save 5 starts for something exceptional or it'd get it. Use an extra rasher of bacon per burger

Had these the other night with a watercress, rocket and spinach salad, it was lovely! Didn't have the bacon on it, didn't really think it needed it. Saved some calories too. Avocado worked well, and made the burger really creamy! Delicious! Will most definitely be making this one again! Yum!
