Grilled chicken, bacon, avocado & red pepper burger with pink sauce

If you fancy a healthful and wholesome burger, then here’s your meal. It’s much less faff than making beef burgers as there’s no mixing involved. Just a selection of beautifully grilled ingredients, an avocado and some delicious pink sauce. This, to me, is a match made in yummy heaven. I hope you like it too!


Preheat the grill or oven to 200/400/gas 6.

If you have a roasting tray with a rack, use it. Line the roasting tray with baking parchment and place the rack on top. Place the chicken breast opened like a book on the rack, along with the bacon rashes and red pepper halves. Drizzle the chicken and red pepper with oil and lemon juice, and season well with salt and pepper.

Place under the grill or in the oven for 20 minutes, turning the chicken, bacon and red pepper half way through.

Meanwhile, place the avocado in a bowl and mash lightly with the back of a fork. In another bowl, mix together the Greek yoghurt, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, a squeeze of lemon, a drizzle of oil and salt and pepper.

Slice open the burger buns and spread over a teaspoon of sauce. Then layer the chicken, bacon, red pepper, smashed avocado and finally plenty of the pink sauce. Finally place on the top half of the burger bun and enjoy!


This burger is a lovely break from winter stodge, and will work just as well on the barbeque in the summer months. When I serve it for the family, I lay all the ingredients out on the table for everyone to help themselves. This way they can pick and chose the ingredients as they wish.”Β
