Crispy chicken burgers with sticky sweet chilli… who could say no to such a classic combo?

Now, thanks to this super-simple recipe from @niallkirkland you can make your own irresistible stack in virtually no time at all. It’s a great go-to for weekday dinners when you need something juicy to bite into at the end of a long day.

Plus, by using our innovative Sugar-Free Sauce, you don’t have to worry about how much sweet chilli goodness you slather over burgers — as well as being sugar-free, it’s low in fat and has just 5 calories per serving. As if you needed telling twice to squeeze generously.


Makes 3


For the crispy chicken burger:
  • 3 chicken breast
  • 30ml Sugar-Free Sauce (Sweet Chilli)
  • 50g plain flour
  • 50g breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
For the toppings:
  • 2 tbsp. light mayo
  • 3 tbsp. Sugar-Free Sauce (Sweet Chilli)
  • ½ cucumber (peeled into ribbons)
  • ½ carrot (grated)
  • 3 sesame seed buns
  • 2 tomatoes (sliced)
  • Handful mixed leaf salad


  1. Firstly, cover your chicken breasts with parchment paper and flatten them with a rolling pin or mallet.
  2. Then, transfer them to a mixing bowl, add the sweet chilli Sugar-Free Sauce and mix well.
  3. If you have time, leave the chicken breasts to marinate for an hour, but if not, then go straight to coating them.
  4. Coat each breast in plain flour, then dip it in the egg wash, and then your breadcrumbs — make sure the whole surface of the chicken breast is covered in breadcrumbs.
  5. Now, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and add your coated chicken.
  6. Fry each chicken breast for 5-6 mins before flipping, then fry for another 6-10 mins, making sure the chicken is cooked through before removing.
  7. Prepare your sweet chilli mayo by combining the light mayo and Sugar-Free Sauce and mixing together.
  8. Prepare your garnishes by peeling your cucumber into ribbons and grating the carrot.
  9. Build your burger! Start with sweet chilli mayo on the bottom bun, then the carrot and cucumber, chicken burger and a little more Sugar-Free Sauce to top it all off.
