  • 4 tbsp reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 4 ciabatta buns, warm or toasted


  1. Heat grill to high. Put the chicken breasts between 2 pieces of cling film and bash with a rolling pin until they’re about half their original thickness. Whizz the toast in a food processor to rough breadcrumbs, then tip out onto a plate.

  2. Beat the egg and mustard together in a bowl and season. Dip the chicken into the egg, let the excess drip back into the bowl, then press into the toasty breadcrumbs. Put under the grill on a flat baking sheet and grill for about 10 mins, turning once, until golden and crisp on both sides and the chicken is cooked through.

  3. Beat the lemon zest, juice and lots of black pepper into the mayonnaise. Spread some of the mayo onto the bottom halves of the buns, top with a chicken breast and salad of your choice and serve.

Very tasty - cooked in over as suggested. Much better than shop brought. Will be cooking again.

Delicious! When I made them the second time round I added more breadcrumbs as I found there weren't enough

Certainly a favourite with my kids. Tried grilling, but prefer oven baking for about 20-25 minutes. The breadcrumb seemed to cook more evenly that way.

These are very tasty - especially in ciabatta rolls. Yummy

The burger was tasty and looked great BUT 10 mins was much too long under my grill; 3 mins per side ample. Breadcrumbed chicken on a bread bun doesn't work at all, leave it out, just spread Dijon mustard on prior to grilling.
