Black Sesame Chicken Burgers


On a chopping board, slice 1 large skinless chicken breast horizontally and diagonally, across the grain of the fibres, into four flat slices.

Whisk an egg white with ½ tsp salt in a bowl until frothy. Sprinkle ½ cup sesame seeds over a plate.

Dip each piece of chicken in the egg, shake off the excess, then lay it over the sesame seeds to coat both sides.

Put a frying pan (or grill) over a medium flame and add a thin layer of vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, cook the chicken pieces for about 8 minutes, turning once, until cooked through and crisp.

Serve in toasted burger buns with lettuce and tomato slices. §
