  • 1 Little Gem lettuce heart, shredded

Method

  1. Put the chicken breasts in between pieces of cling film and bash with a rolling pin to flatten. Mix together the thyme, oil, jerk seasoning and half the lime juice in a bowl. Add the chicken and leave to marinate for 5 mins.

  2. Heat a griddle pan until hot and cook the chicken for 4-5 mins each side or until cooked through. Remove from the heat. Meanwhile, toast the cut sides of the buns for 1-2 mins.

  3. Put the chicken on the buns and top with the mango, tomato and a handful of lettuce. Squeeze over the rest of the lime and top with mayo and ketchup, if you like.

Soooo good. Amazing if you leave the chicken to marinate for a few hours. Can't fault the flavours in this recipe and the mango goes perfectly

Great dish, really easy to do with little prep time. Overall taste was amazing for such a simple recipe. I use this recipe for a variety of chicken dishes whether it's in a bun, salad or wrap.

Really tasty, didn't have jerk seasoning, so used cajun and added more chilli powder, with bbq sauce instead of ketchup. Not sure that the mango added anything, but they were way better than normal chicken burgers

Best burger recipe I have ever done!! It's delicious!!! I used lemon instead of lime, and served in toasted buns along with cheddar cheese and soured cream. Also did smoked paprika potato salad and courgette salad as side dishes. Served this for my family last night, and it was a massive hit with everyone, I really recommend it.

Delicious recipe, quick and easy to make. I used cajun spices instead of jerk seasoning and left out the thyme. I added cheddar cheese, substituted lettuce for spinach and served with paprika potato wedges.

An unqualified success - I loved it and have recommended to friends. Since I made it just for myself I reduced the amount of jerk seasoning. I blogged the experience and took photos as http://badzilla.co.uk/Good-Food--Jerk-Chicken-Burger
