Naan Burger

A chicken burger can be a versatile cooking ingredient, and this Indian take on the classic burger proves it in our Naan Burger recipe. The succulent meat combines perfectly with the fresh and flavoursome ingredients to create a wonderful filling for a freshly cooked naan bread.

Our Chicken Quarter Pounders combine the most succulent British Chicken thigh meat and carefully selected seasoning for a burger that’s full of flavour and tender to eat. A perfect choice for this naan burger recipe idea.

When it comes to chicken, we source only the most succulent Red Tractor British Chicken thigh meat. This gives the meaty bite and great juicy taste our customers love.

  • 4 Edwards Chicken Quarter Pounders
  • 250ml natural yoghurt
  • 0.5 cucumber finely chopped
  • Large handful mint leaves, chopped
  • Large pinch salt
  • 250g plain flour
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 0.5 tsp baking powder
  • 120ml milk
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil, plus extra for greasing
  • Fresh lettuce
  • Fresh coriander, to garnish
  • Mango chutney, to serve

Cooking Instructions

  • For the dough, sift flour and mx with the salt, sugar and baking powder into a bowl. Mix the milk and oil in another bowl.
  • Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and pour in the liquid mixture. Slowly mix together the dough by working from the centre and incorporating the flour from the edges of the 'well', to make a smooth, soft dough. Knead well for 8–10 minutes, adding a little flour if the dough is too sticky.
  • Place the dough into an oiled bowl, cover with a damp tea-towel and leave in a warm place for 10–15 minutes.
  • Heat a little oil in a frying pan. Gently fry the Edwards Chicken Quarter Pounders on a medium heat for 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally to ensure the burgers are cooked throughout. Cover once cooked.
  • Whilst the burgers are cooking prepare the Raita. Mix the cut cucumber, yoghurt, salt and mint leaves.
  • 5 minutes before the chicken burgers are cooked, split the dough into 6 balls and roll into oval shapes just over twice the size of the burgers. Heat some oil in a medium-high heat frying pan. Cook the naan breads one by one, cook each until golden underneath and air bubbles are formed, flip and cook the other side unit golden. Repeat for the other naan breads.
  • Build the burger by folding the naan bread into half, place on some fresh lettuce, spread on a table spoon of Raita, add a spoonful of mango chutney and finish with some fresh coriander.
