- 2 Potatoes
- 1 Punnet of Baby Plum Tomatoes
- 2 Seeded Burger Buns
- 1 Tbsp Chipotle Paste
- 3 Chicken Thighs
- 1 Lime
- 1 Avocado
- 60g Cheddar Cheese
- 1 Tbsp Mayonnaise
Step by Step Instructions
Step 1: Prep the Wedges
Preheat your oven to 200°C. Chop the potatoes into 2cm wide wedges (no need to peel!). Pop the wedges on a large baking tray in a single layer. Drizzle with oil, then season with salt and pepper.
Toss to coat, then spread out and roast on the top shelf of your oven until golden, 25-30 mins. Turn halfway through cooking.
TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary, you want the potatoes nicely spread out.
Step 2: Finish the Prep
Zest and halve the lime. Squeeze half the lime juice and a drizzle of olive oil into a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Chop the tomatoes into 2cm pieces and pop into a bowl.
Slice lengthways into the avocado. Once you reach the stone, turn the avocado around to cut it in half. Twist each half and pull it apart. Remove the stone then scoop out the flesh onto a board.
Chop half the avocado into 2cm chunks and pop into the bowl with the tomato. Set aside.
Step 3: Make the Guacamole
Roughly chop the remaining avo and put in another bowl, add the remaining lime juice. Season with salt and pepper, then roughly mash (this is for your burger later).
Halve the burger buns, grate the Cheddar cheese. Put half the chipotle paste and all the mayo into a small bowl and mix together.
Step 4: Cook the Kitchen
Heat a glug of oil in a frying pan on medium high heat. While the oil heats up, season the chicken with salt and pepper.
Once the oil is hot, lay in the chicken thighs and fry until browned on each side and cooked through, 13-15 mins. Turn every 2-3 mins.
IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Step 5: Add the Cheese
Once the chicken thighs are cooked, remove the pan from the heat and add the lime zest and half the chipotle to the pan, turn the chicken thighs to coat them in the paste. Top them with the grated cheese.
Cover the pan with a lid or some tin foil and leave the cheese to melt, 3-4 mins.
Meanwhile, halve the burger buns and pop them into the oven to warm for 1-2 mins.
Step 6: Finish and Serve the Dish
Spread the chipotle mayo on the bottom half of the buns and the guac on the top half. Pop the chicken thighs on a board and carefully chop each of them into 3 or 4 pieces.
Share the chicken between in the buns and serve with the wedges and tomato avo salad on the side. Enjoy!
