Saffron chicken burger with the works

Ingredients for four hamburgers

  • 4 special hamburger buns (recommendations: hamburger bun, round sesame seed buns, seed bread etc).
  • 500 g chopped chicken breast.
  • Antonio Sotos saffron strands.
  • 2 cucumbers
  • Boiled potato.
  • 10 or 12 dried tomatoes.
  • Endive.
  • Sweet red bell pepper.
  • ½ teaspoon of turmeric.
  • Cheddar cheese slices.
  • Mayonnaise
  • Salt.
  • Pepper.


Hamburgers elaboration

The first thing to do is to prepare the saffron, as it takes longer to make, that’s why the strands are placed into a spoonful of hot water for steeping. Once the saffron has released its colour and aroma, add the water and blend into the chopped chicken meat in a bowl.  Add turmeric, salt and pepper to taste.


Using our hands, lightly moistened the meat mixture with the spices, and once obtaining a nice mixture, form into 4 hamburger patties.


Cut the cucumber into thin slices and add a little ground pepper on top. Cut the sweet bell pepper into slices, add salt, vinegar and marinate for 10-15 minutes.


Lightly oil the grill grate and grill each meat burger patty.


Cut the buns in half and  add a slice of cheddar cheese, a bit of endive, 2 or 3 dried tomatoes depending on the size, cucumber slices, and the meat cooked just right as each diner desires and for mayonnaise lovers a dollop of mayonnaise can be added to imbue the hamburger with a more tender and tastier touch.


Celebrating with a quality burger on National Hamburger Day will be a real treat for the entire whole family. Are you game to tasting them yourself? Tell us about it on our  Facebook, Instagram and Twitter social networks.
