Muchroom for a mushroom chicken burger?

Chicken burger with mushroom bun

Today I stepped away from the conventional burger bun and unleashed the BFG of the mushroom world, the  portobello mushroom.

To put it simply I went for the middle class hipsters alternative  to McDonald’s . A mushroom burger with homemade guacamole, sweet potato chips, tomatoes and a chicken breast. Which created the above little number!!!!!

Ingredients =

  • Coconut oil
  • A chicken bosum
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Italian spices
  • Salt
  • An avocado
  • a third of a large onion chopped
  • Yellow pepper chopped
  • Sweet potato
  • Tomatoes
  • x2 portobello mushroom
  • Lemon


  1. Cut the sweet potato up (so they roughly look like chips). Put the chips on a baking tray with a spoon full of coconut oil, and throw the Italian herbs over the sweet potato. For reference I put it at 160 degrees and left it to cook for 25 mins.
  2. Put a frying pan on heat, add a spoonful of coconut oil and slap the chicken in the pan. Throwing some cayenne pepper onto the bosum and flipping when appropriate.
  3. Finally when there is 5 mins left on the clock  throw the portobello mushroom in the oven with the chips. Then cut the avocado in half. Chuck the chopped onion, avocado, and pepper into a bowl and mash… squeezing the lemon juices over the guacamole.

Then assemble the dish… and feel slightly smug about your creation!
