    • 450g chicken mince
    • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
    • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

    1. Make the sauce by whisking the mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons maple syrup and the Dijon mustard together in a small bowl; set aside.
    2. Heat 2 tablespoons rapeseed oil in a frying pan over medium heat; cook and stir the onion and about half of the chopped apple in the hot oil until soft, 7 to 10 minutes. Set aside.
    3. Mix the remaining uncooked apple, the minced chicken, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, Italian seasoning, egg, salt and pepper together in bowl. Shape the burger mixture into 6 balls; the mixture will be loose, but that is okay.
    4. Heat 1 tablespoon rapeseed oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Place one of the balls into the hot oil and flatten with the back of spoon to create a burger. Cook until slightly brown on one side and then flip and cook the other side until cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes per side; repeat for each portion.
    5. To assemble, place the chicken burgers on buns; top with the reserved cooked apple and onions. Pour some sauce over the top of each burger; more sauce can be served on the side if desired.

    Chicken mince

    Chicken mince can be hard to find at the shops, so you can use turkey mince which will also work well in this recipe!

    these went down a storm in our house. And taste great the day after cold in a bun with the sauce!!!  -  24 May 2012


    4 1/2 stars I'm surprised that I tried this. It's rare that I"d buy ground chicken. The burgers were good, even tho I didn't make the sauce (don't care for mayo or dijon) Instead it seemed to scream "Bacon!". I loved the apple, syrup, bacon combo. I'll make this again.  -  16 Dec 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Used egg whites and a different apple type (gala?). Used George Forman to grill burgers. Excellent flavor. Will definately be making again.  -  14 Dec 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
