  1. Bash the chicken breasts so they are an even thickness. Mix the spices together (salt, cumin, coriander, crushed garlic, and chillies/hot pepper), then roll the chicken until each piece is evenly coated. Leave to marinate for at least 10 mins.
  2. Oil the bbq grill, a griddle or a large frying pan over a high heat. Place the chicken in and evenly cook each side, until the chicken is cooked to your desire.
  3. Meanwhile, put all of the coleslaw ingredients in to a bowl. Season well and mix until fully combined. Set aside, to be used for serving.
  4. Assemble your burger, put the grilled chicken burger into the bread and top with the coleslaw.

Serve with spiced fries and you have yourself a classic homemade chicken burger and fries combo!
