Tex Mex chicken burgers

10 minutes (15 minutes)
Serves 4

Serves 4

See recipe for Serves 2 here 

  • 2 x 250g chicken breast fillets 
  • 1 tablespoon Heart Foundation Mexican spice blend  
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 
  • ½ cup drained, canned no added salt black beans 
  • 1 large roma tomato, cut into 1cm pieces 
  • ½ small red onion, thinly sliced 
  • ½ cup chopped fresh coriander 
  • 2 tablespoons tomato salsa 
  • 4 wholegrain bread rolls 
  • 1 avocado, halved, sliced 
  • 4 butter lettuce leaves 
  1. Cut chicken fillets in half through the side to make 4 thin steaks in total. Combine spice blend and oil in a large shallow dish. Add chicken steaks and turn to coat evenly with spice mixture.  
  2. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add chicken. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side or until evenly browned and cooked through.  
  3. Meanwhile, combine beans, tomato, onion, coriander and salsa in a small bowl. 
  4. Split rolls in half and toast lightly.  
  5. To serve, place lettuce over base of rolls, then top with chicken, bean mix, avocado and roll tops.  

Tips  

  • For a shortcut, replace chicken breast fillets with 4 uncrumbed chicken breast schnitzel steaks, available from supermarkets and specialty chicken shops.  
  • Use medium wholegrain wraps instead of wholemeal rolls, if preferred. Check labels and choose the brand lowest in sodium.
