Ground chicken - 1 pound
Instant oats - 2 tablespoons (can be replaced by breadcrumbs)
Egg - 1
Sesame oil - 1 teaspoon
Soy sauce - 2 teaspoons
Garlic powder - 1 teaspoon
Freshly ground black pepper- 1 teaspoon
Chilli flakes - 1 teaspoon (can be replaced with chilli powder or chilli sauce)
Dried oregano - 1/2 teaspoon (optional-or can be replaced by any herbs)
Sugar - 1 teaspoon
Place all the seasoning in a bowl and mix it well with a fork. Powder the instant oats.
In another bowl, take the minced chicken and add the egg. Beat well so that it is well incorporated with the chicken. Add the seasoning and mix again. Finally add the powdered oats and mix well.
The egg helps in holding all the ingredients together and the oats gives a nice crust to the burger.
Make burger size patties and shape them in your palms.
Heat a shallow pan and drizzle some oil. Once it is heated, 3 to 4 patties at a time. Cook on medium heat for about 4 to 5 minutes. Flip the patties over carefully and allow to cook on the other side for about 4 minutes.
Check if it has cooked through completely.
Serve over burger buns with toppings of your choice.
I made mine with some low-fat mayonnaise, mint chutney, cheese, lettuce, onions and tomatoes. Enjoy!
