Special diet :


2 chicken breast fillets
Cajun seasoning, to taste
Olive oil spray
4 hamburger buns
1 avocado, sliced
2 small tomatoes, sliced


1½ cups (120 g) finely shredded white cabbage
1 small carrot, coarsely grated
¼ red onion, finely chopped
1½ tablespoons whole-egg mayonnaise
3 teaspoons lemon juice



  1. To make the coleslaw, toss the cabbage, carrot and onion with the combined mayonnaise and lemon juice. Set aside.
  2. Preheat a barbecue hotplate or grill rack to medium–high heat. Cut the chicken breast fillets in half horizontally. Use a meat mallet or rolling pin to gently beat out so they are of an even thickness. Sprinkle all over with Cajun seasoning.
  3. Spray the chicken pieces with oil and cook on the hotplate or grill rack over direct heat for 2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  4. Cut the rolls in half horizontally, and cook the cut sides on the grill rack for about 30 seconds, or until lightly toasted.
  5. Place coleslaw onto the bun bases, and top with the chicken. Arrange the avocado and tomatoes on top, and serve immediately.
