Grinding chicken thighs for this burger, rather than using the already-ground chicken, gives the best flavour and texture. A Caprese salad topping of Bocconcini cheese, tomatoes and basil adds a fresh kick.

MethodPatties: In food processor, pulse chicken until coarsely ground; set aside.
In large bowl, beat egg with water; stir in onion, garlic, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, basil, sun-dried tomatoes, salt and pepper. Mix in chicken. Shape into four 3/4-inch (2 cm) thick patties.
Place patties on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until digital thermometer inserted sideways into centre reads 165°F (74°C), 12 to 14 minutes.
Sandwich burgers, Bocconcini, tomato and basil in buns.
