This is like Nando’s iconic Peri-Peri® burger but it’s even better because you made it yourself! Let’s face it, home cooking trumps takeout. We’ve dialed the heat to a perfect medium but added a creamy blend of mayo and sour cream to tame it. Insider tip: if time allows (even just 10 minutes), let the chicken marinate in the seasoning to soak up all that flavour. With a toasted bun, a nice char on the chicken, and your favourite fixings, boom, it’s burger bliss!


Ingredients

Toppings (optional): sliced tomato, onion, lettuce

Preparation
  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Lightly brush with oil.
  2. Reserve 1 tsp seasoning; set aside.
  3. Place chicken in a large bowl. Add remaining seasoning, lime juice, and oil.  Toss to coat. If you have time, let stand 10 min, or cover and refrigerate overnight to marinate. 
  4. Place chicken on grill. Cook, with lid closed, 6–7 min per side, or until chicken is cooked through.
  5. Meanwhile, prepare sauce: in a small bowl, whisk reserved 1 tsp seasoning, mayo, and sour cream. 
  6. Slice and toast buns, if desired. Spread sauce on top and bottom buns. Add toppings, if desired, then chicken. 
Tips

This recipe makes a big batch of burgs: freeze half the cooked chicken to have burgers another night.

No grill? Arrange seasoned chicken thighs on a lined Sheet Pan. Bake in preheated 450° F oven 16–18 min, or until cooked through.
