Easy spicy chicken burgers
Juicy chicken burgers with spicy piquanté peppers and herbs served on toasted buns is a family classic turned up a notch.
Burgers are a serious family favourite in our household. Whether it’s a quick weeknight dinner or a casual burger party over weekends, we love a good burger around here. So, it’s no surprise that these juicy chicken burgers went down a treat. They are seriously SO good!
The chicken burger patties are so easy to make and requires minimal prep. Chicken, breadcrumbs, egg and herbs are all brought together with “PEPPADEW® Sweet Piquanté Peppers Hot Whole” to add a truck-load of flavour. Even though the peppers are quite spicy when you eat them as is, they add a delicious sweetness without too much heat to the burger patties so even the kids could enjoy the burgers with us.
PEPPADEW® is a proudly South African brand with a wide range of products including the universally-loved sweet piquanté peppers, alongside juicy jalapeños, traditional atchars, spicy relishes, pickled onions, pasta sauces and addictive Splash-On™ sauces. The sweet piquanté peppers in particular are a serious favourite of mine. They are perfect on pizzas, nachos or tacos and no cheese board is complete without them.
Contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as a “peppadew.” PEPPADEW® is a brand, and that famous little red fruit is a piquanté pepper.
