Makes 2 burgers

  • 1 chicken breast, halved
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp marjoram
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary 
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley or 1 1/2 tsp dry parsley 
  • 4-5 slices of bacon
  • 2 slices of cheese of choice 
  • 2 burger buns
  • Tomatoes
  • Onions
  • Arugula
  • Hot sauce of choice
  • Additional toppings
  1. To prepare the marinade, pour olive oil, garlic, lime juice, salt, pepper, marjoram, basil, and parsley into a medium-sized bowl. Add in the chicken and let it marinate for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Heat a grill pan or other pan on medium heat. Cook the chicken on one side for 3-4 minutes. Flip and cook the other side until the chicken has been cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, on another pan, add additional oil or butter and toast your burger buns until golden brown on each side.
  4. When the chicken has almost cooked through, put the cheese and bacon on top and cook for another minute.
  5. When the cheese has melted, assemble the burger. Put on some of your favourite hot sauce and then a bed of arugula, and add the chicken with the cheese and bacon. Add additional toppings. Serve hot and enjoy :)
