Weightwatchers Chicken Burgers

Got that Friday Feeling.

In my house that has always meant 1 thing.

Oh those National Chipper days can be a killer.  Well even as a child, Fridays were, no meat and a 1 and 1 day.  That meant fish and chips from the chipper.  That developed into burger and chips and so on.

Fridays are still a hectic day and the handiness of chipper is sometimes overwhelming.  I do love a good burger but since starting my Weightwatchers journey, i find that the buns that i can have as a low propoint bread just don't cut it.  Their too small and well they don't fill me.

Until now.  I came across a little beauty in Lidl the other day.  

These are huge.  Maybe 4 times the size of other mini buns but they have a Weightwatchers Propoint value of 4.  Seriously, these are worth it.  4 PP? i was astounded.  Needless to say i snapped them up. 

Using these i decided that it was definitely time for some serious burgers. 

Weightwatchers Propoints per Burger 7
Weightwatchers Propoints per Recipe 15
Serves 2


1 Chicken breast
1 tsp of Cajun spice
1 tsp of smoked paprika
1 tsp of minced ginger
1 tsp of minced garlic
1/2 a tsp of rosemary
Spray oil

2 slices of Dubliner Lite Vintage Cheese
Half a tomato sliced
4 slices of gurken from a jar
2 Lidl Premium Rolls
2 tsp of French Mustard
2 tsp of Weightwatchers Salad Cream
2 tsp of Ketchup


Mix all of the spices together.  Take the chicken breast and half it down the side.  Mist with a little spray oil.  take 1 Tbl of mixed spice and rub on each half on both sides.  You will have some left over.  Keep and use again at a later stage.  Place the chicken on the grill on high for 4 minutes and then turn and repeat. 

Remove from the grill.  Half each bun and place under the grill for 2 minutes until they start to turn brown.  Place 1 tsp of French mustard on one half and then on the other, on the other half of the bun mix the salad cream with the ketchup and spoon onto the bun. 

Place the chicken halves onto 2 halves of buns and 1 slice of cheese on each chicken part and return to the grill until cheese has melted.  Remove and add the gurken and using the other halves, place the tomatoes and return all to the grill until they start to char. 

Remove and plate up.  So imagine a bun halved.  One side has chicken, cheese and gurken and the other with french mustard and charred tomatoes. 

I served mine with 4 Weightwatchers Propoints worth of chips made in my actfry and a salad. 

Enjoy the Niptuck way, so you don't have too!
