Food Processor– The best way to make a ground chicken in no time. Or just use already ground chicken, but I prefer grinding chicken thighs myself, just like in my Chicken Nugget recipe, plus it’s less expensive.
Mandoline– Or a really sharp chef knife to slice your cabbage very thin.
Large Bowl– Multiple sizes that stack perfectly in any kitchen.
Cast Iron Pan– If you decide not to grill these chicken burgers, using a cast iron pan is the nest way to get a nice crispy outside texture but ensure a moist burger inside.

Place the chicken in a food processor along with the garlic and onion. Blitz to combine. Transfer to a bowl and mix with the tomato puree, chili, salt, pepper and parsley until combined.
Press into two burger patties or use a burger press. Add the ghee to a non stick frying pan. Fry the chicken burgers for about 3 – 4 minutes per side on low / medium heat (6 – 8 minutes in total) or until cooked through. Make sure the heat is not too high so you do not burn the outside.

In a clean small bowl, mix the mayo ingredients together using a spoon. Stir through the slaw, keeping about 1.5 tbsp back to add on top of the burgers.
Serve burgers with mayo and top with slaw.
