This is my version of a teriyaki burger. The sweet and salty flavour of the honey and soy is accented perfectly by the nuttiness of the roasted sesame oil. As the honey can burn easily, the chicken thighs are cooked in the oven; you can chargrill them if you like, but they are prone to stick.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
80ml light soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey
4 spring onions, cut into 5 cm lengths
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon sesame seeds, lightly toasted
4 boneless chicken thighs, skin on, about 150 g each
4 Soft burger buns, cut in half
Clarified butter, melted, for brushing
60g Jalapeño & Thai basil mayo

Sesame slaw

Quantity Ingredient
75g cabbage, finely shredded
2 tablespoons coriander leaves, washed and dried
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon peanut oil
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon sesame seeds, lightly toasted

Method

  1. In a bowl, combine the soy sauce, honey and spring onion. Stir in the sesame oil and sesame seeds. Add the chicken and mix thoroughly, turning to coat. Cover and marinate in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a roasting tin with foil and add the chicken in a single layer. Bake for 20 minutes, turning and mixing every 5 minutes. Check to see if the chicken is done; if it isn’t, continue cooking a little longer.
  3. For the slaw, add the cabbage and coriander to a bowl. Add the vinegar, peanut oil, sesame oil and sesame seeds and toss together. When the chicken is out of the oven, pick out the spring onion pieces and toss them through the slaw.
  4. To assemble the burgers, heat a flat grill plate, or a non-stick frying pan, to a medium heat. Brush the insides of the buns with clarified butter and toast lightly on the grill, then build your burgers.

Build from the bottom, in this order:

  • Bun bottom → Jalapeño & Thai basil mayo → Chicken → Sesame slaw → Bun top
