The secret to making this healthy burger and chips? First you’re going to use chicken instead of beef for the patties. That’s because if you’re trying to restrict calories, chicken is the best way to go. It’s high in protein and low in fat compared to the other types of red meat you might consider using and by using a chicken breast you’re getting the leanest cut. Plus, chicken is a great source of iron, zinc, selenium and B vitamins.

You’re probably familiar with the benefits of iron, zinc and B vitamins, but don’t forget about selenium. It’s a mineral that’s important for cognitive function, fertility and having a healthy immune system. And just by eating chicken you’ll be reaping those benefits (without having to head to supplement the aisles of Dischem).

The second secret of this healthy burger and chips recipe is that you’re going to make chips with fresh ingredients that are flavoured to perfection. We hear your groaning and maybe you think those oil-soaked fries are the best part. But we did say that we’d be making some adjustments and we’ve ensured that this one is still equally enjoyable. And the freshness of the cucumber (yes, cucumber) chips really does help avoid that heavy feeling you usually get after scoffing down a burger and chips from your local takeaway joint.
