Recipe Notes

The salsa I used for this is just Tesco's own salsa from the Dorito's section, but you can buy any brand salsa from any supermarket to add some flavour and spice to the chicken burger. This keeps for a long time in the cupboard but of course, you can make your own salsa if you have time!

For the peppers you can use thin slices of red pepper, or roasted and oiled peppers from a jar. For kids who don't like pepper, tomato slices will also add a gentle crunch and get that important portion of vegetables.

Serve with sweet potato fries and chunky coleslaw if eating for a main meal, or serve on its own for a tasty and filling lunch!

For a more Mexican feel, you could serve the remaining salsa from the jar with tortilla chips, topped with cheese. Jalapeno peppers will also add a tasty kick for those who like it with a little bit of extra fire!
