Peri Peri Style Chicken Burgers

Peri Peri Style Chicken Burgers Recipe

Today I’m bringing you another delicious takeaway recipe! My Peri-Peri Style Chicken Burgers put a spicy twist on the classic chicken burger. Juicy, marinated chicken breast fillets are the main focus of these burgers, and they can be marinated in advance to make this recipe even quicker on busy nights. Top a soft brioche roll with the chicken, crisp tangy coleslaw, cheese, and a drizzle of chilli mayo and you’ll find yourself in heaven–or adjust these toppings to suit your family’s preferences. These are great for entertaining or devouring as a fun family meal. 

Can you make Peri Peri Style Chicken Burgers ahead of time?

Marinate the chicken and refrigerate for up to three days before cooking. Freeze for up to 2 months. Thaw completely in the fridge overnight before cooking.
