Method

 

For the eggs, place in a saucepan of cold water, cover and bring to the boil. Remove the saucepan from heat and allow the eggs to stand for 5 minutes for soft boiled. Remove from the saucepan using a slotted spoon and peel over running cold water. Cut in slices.

For the dressing, mix the ingredients together and shake well.

Chicken:
Make a small slit on one side of each chicken breast and stuff with the blue cheese. Secure with cocktail sticks.
Mix the rub ingredients together and rub the chicken. Grill for 6 minutes each side until cooked through. Set as upside to rest for 5 minutes.

For the bacon, place the bacon directly onto the grill and cook for 5 minutes a side until it starts to brown. 

Brush maple syrup on one side and turn. After a minute brush on the top and turn. Both sides now have maple syrup. 

Give it a minute or so turning to caramelize the bacon and take off. Let cool and crisp.

Tip:
If using the oven, place the bacon on a baking sheet and bake in an oven at 200C for about 15 minutes until it starts to brown. Brush it with maple syrup and give it another 5 mins. Take it out to cool and crisp.

For the bun, butter the insides, place on the braai with the buttered side down for 4 minutes until golden and crispy.

To assemble the burger, place the buns opened on a board , top the bottom halves with lettuce, watercress and tomato slice.

Now top with stuffed chicken, bacon strips avo and egg.

Drizzle with dressing, lid on, burger stick in and serve.

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
