Chicken burgers with a sesame seed crust, roasted vegetables and an avocado salad


I have not yet been to the groceries store so tonight I worked with whatever I had at home and this is how it turned out…

2 Chicken file 600 grams or 1.3 lbs. (or minced chicken)

1/3 cup chopped leek

¼ cup chopped Cilantro

1 chopped garlic clove

½ limejuice

2 tablespoons Soy sauce (gluten-free)

½ teaspoon Paprika powder

Salt and Pepper

1 Egg

1 teaspoon sesame oil

Sesame Seeds.

Start by putting the chicken in a food processor and make a mince. Mix in all the other ingredients except the sesame seeds. The minced chicken gets really messy so it is easier to form burgers if your hand are wet. Before you but them in the frying pan sprinkle the sesame seed on one side and before you flip them the other side. Make sure your burgers are well done as raw chicken may get you sick.

I just used whatever vegetables I had left over, I love the anise flavor of fennel and that went really well with the Brussels sprouts, yellow zucchini and bell pepper. Some fun fact about fennel; it was actually used by the ancient Greeks to help to loose weight, as it is good for your metabolism.

I also chopped an avocado with some cocktail tomatoes and sprinkled over some lime juice.
