East meets West with Bill Granger's Vietnamese twist on chicken burgers with a slaw that packs a punch - perfect for a weekend lunch

Method

1. Peel and finely grate the onion and peel and crush the garlic. Finely chop the white part of the lemongrass, then place with the chicken, onion, breadcrumbs, garlic, coriander, lime zest, fish sauce and sugar in a large bowl and mix together well with your hands. Shape into 4 patties, then cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

2. Heat a barbecue or grill pan and brush the burgers with a little oil. Cook for 4 minutes each side or until cooked through.

3. Serve the burgers on soft rolls with lettuce, mint, coriander, chilli sauce and mayonnaise.

reall tasty flavours, I minced up frozen tuna steaks rather than chicken and added an egg white to bind them. I only made it 4 stars as i think it needs the egg white. lovely fresh flavours and the coleslaw was great with slices of hot radish.
