Chicken Burger with the Lot (Joshua’s Style)

Josh did up the chicken burger with the lot for dinner last night. I wasn’t really hungry because I ate half a can of pineapple-stuffed rambutans in syrup right before dinner. But it was really rather good that I actually ate a whole burger (which was BIG), went to bed and woke up in the morning still very full.

What you’ll need for a successful burger with lot, Joshua’s style:

  1. 1/2 chicken breast (halved lengthwise), pan-fried until nice and browned
  2. toasted burger bun (focaccia/turkish bread roll are much better though)
  3. 1 big slice of Colby cheese
  4. 2 thick slices of tomatoes
  5. 2 tbsp sautéed mushrooms
  6. 1 slice of canned pineapple
  7. 2-3 slices of canned beetroots
  8. Mixed leaf salad – rocket, various lettuce, rocket, raddichio
  9. (optional) Pan-fried bacon slice
  10. (optional) Fried egg

To me, the important things are the beetroot, pineapple, cheese and tomato. That’s it. Anything else is negotiable.

Because I’m a gravy girl and we have leftover gravy from the roast, I made mushroom gravy:

This is my burger (with gravy and braised bacon cabbage):

That was wayyyy too much food. I seriously still feel full after waking up in the morning.

Caution:Extremely messy to eat. Definitely not first date food.
