Chicken haloumi burgers recipe

These delicious chicken and haloumi burgers are a winner with kids and adults alike. They make a great midweek meal, or can be added to a fabulous barbecue line-up when entertaining friends.

Serving Size:

Makes 6



Patty ingredients:

  • 500g chicken mince
  • 1 medium carrot, finely grated
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 100g haloumi, grated
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp oregano, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (45g) breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

To compile burgers:

  • 6 small bread rolls
  • tomato, spinach, cucumber, etc.


In a large bowl, combine all the patty ingredients except the oil. Use clean hands to mix well. Add more breadcrumbs if the mixture seems too wet. Season well.

Form mixture into six patties. Refrigerate until you are ready to cook.

Heat oil in a large frypan or on a barbecue plate. Cook patties for 5-6 minutes each side over a gentle heat. Check to ensure they are cooked through.

Cut bread rolls in half. Fill with salad ingredients and cooked chicken and haloumi patties. Serve with tomato sauce or chutney.


  • Boost the vegetable content with some finely grated zucchini or sweet potato as well.
  • Ensure you cook the patties over a very gentle heat so that you don’t end up with a burnt outside and raw centre.
