Method

Chicken burger

In a food processor, make the jerk seasoning by blending coconut cream, chilli, spring onions, garlic and ginger.

Add the lime zest and juice. Season to taste.

Cut the thighs down to the bone and smear with jerk seasoning, then top with maple syrup.

Roast in oven 200/180ºC fan for 30 minutes until cooked through, basting with maple.

Remove the bone from chicken and build each burger with lettuce, mango and tomato.

Maple slaw

Mix cabbage, apple, carrots and onion in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl, mix maple syrup, natural yoghurt, lemon juice, maple vinegar and mustard.

Season and mix in the cabbage mixture.

Chill, and serve on the side of your burger.

Chef’s tip

For a healthier low-carb, high-protein alternative, double up on chicken or go bun-less and add extra side salad or maple slaw.
