Burgers: Using your hands, mix all the ingredients for the burgers except the olive oil in a large mixing bowl.
Divide the mixture into 6 uniform parts and shape each into a patty about 10 cm in diameter and 1,5 cm thick.
Put the patties on a baking sheet lined with wax paper and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Heat half the oil over medium heat in a large nonstick pan and fry 3 of the patties for 4 minutes a side or until brown and done.
Repeat with the remaining oil and patties.

To serve: Put a chicken burger on one half of a roll and top with a slice of cheese, slice of pineapple and piece of pepper.
Pile rocket leaves on top and cover with the other half of the roll.
Repeat with the remaining rolls.

Tip of the day

White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
