  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.

Cooked for the second time, added a wee bit more punch with a few chili flakes and it was absolutely perfect for me, alongside some homemade chunky chips and sweetcorn. Heaven in a burger.

It's very nice, quick and easy to make. My missus loved it, but I will add a bit more "punch" next time for me.

Best burgers I have ever had! Massive hit with my family and my sister-in-law actually said it was better than the burger she normally gets from Nando's!! These will definitely be a regular thing from now on, thank you 11/10

This is a lovely recipe and I was especially pleased about how easy it was to make the cajun seasoning! Instead of slicing the avacado, I mashed it up with chopped tomato, added salt & pepper and a squeeze of lemon then spread it on the side of the ciabatta. For extra bite I also added a few jalepenos!

Delicious! Partner and I loved it, especially the way the advocado is inbetween the chicken. I will definately be making this again. We also had some left over chicken so had it in a salad for lunch the next day.

Absolutely fantastic recipe!l A huge hit with all the family, I've never been able to fins the ciabatta rolls but just use ordinary crusty rolls, granary rolls are especially good with the burgers too
