Chick Chick Burgers

Chick Chick Burgers

Chick-Chick. That is chicken and chickpeas! Not chk-chk boom, for you Australians who remember!

It was 4:45... we normally eat at 5:30... and I hadn't even decided what to make!!! I had some chicken thigh mince in the freezer and then I just went from there. This made about 27 or so patties and I expected to have some for school lunches tomorrow. I was wrong! They all went!!

The method with this basically went, find something, chuck it in, pulse it...


  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • handful of parsley leaves
  • 2 spring onions
  • 1 stick celery, roughly chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • about 1 cup breadcrumbs (homemade, of course!!)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp citric acid
  • 500g chicken thigh mince


  • Add each ingredient in turn and pulse on about Speed 5-7 after each, to chop, mince and combine. Only a few seconds each time.
  • Form mixture into thin patties, about palm-size and shallow fry
  • I served with Miracle Mash and green beans and goes really well with Pear Ketchup

Ms C said "You're the best meat-maker!!" Ummm... thanks.

Actually, I was surprised they loved them so much. I thought they might be a little dry and said they needed the sauce. But Ms D doesn't eat the ketchup and ate more burgers than anyone!
Of course, you can serve these like the beef burgers: in a bread-roll, with lettuce, a little grated carrot, cucumber & pear ketchup.
