Pesto Chicken Burgers with Sweet Potato Chips

Give burger night a light update with a pesto chicken filling and garlicky sweet potato chips. We’ve pan-fried our chicken, but you could also grill yours on the barbecue for a smokier flavour.

60 Minutes




Bake Sweet Potato Chips

Preheat oven to 200°C fan-forced. Cut sweet potato into wedges and spread out on a lined baking tray. Crush garlic cloves, set half aside and place the other half in a bowl with 20ml (1 tablespoon) oil and a pinch of salt and mix to combine. Spoon garlic oil over sweet potato and mix well to coat. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden and tender.



Make Marinade

Zest and juice lemon. Place zest and juice in a bowl with remaining garlic and basil pesto and stir to combine. Divide mixture in half and set one portion aside to serve.



Marinate Chicken

Carefully cut chicken breast fillets into 1cm-thick slices. Place chicken in a large bowl with half the marinade and toss to coat. Set aside at room temperature for 10 minutes to marinate.



Make Tomato Sauce

Halve cherry tomatoes and thinly slice eschalots. Heat 20ml (1 tablespoon) oil in a frypan over medium heat. Add eschalot and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until softened. Add cherry tomatoes with 30ml (1 1/2 tablespoons) water and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until softened and collapsed. Transfer to a bowl, add red wine vinegar and stir to combine. Set aside. Wipe out pan.



Cook Chicken

Dust chicken in flour. Heat remaining oil in frypan over medium heat. Cook chicken, in batches, for 6 minutes each side or until golden and cooked through. Remove chicken and place on paper towel to drain. Wipe out pan.



Plate Up

Halve burger buns and toast, cut-side down, in frypan for 2 minutes. Spread bun bases with reserved pesto marinade and top with chicken, tomato sauce, rocket, parmesan and bun tops. Serve with sweet potato chips.
