- Heat a large non-stick frying pan with oil over medium-high heat. When hot, fry the burgers for a couple of minutes on each side until cooked through. The cheese will make a nice crispy crust.
- Combine the mayonnaise, garlic powder, basil, and black pepper in a small bowl.
- Place a patty on a lettuce leaf, add a dollop of dressing, thinly sliced tomato, pickles, and top with another patty to make your chicken cheeseburger. Enjoy!
Air fryer method
Follow step 1 of the recipe. Then preheat the air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
Lightly spray the basket with a bit of coconut oil spray. Place the chicken burgers in the air fryer for 8 minutes, flip them, and then air fry for another 7 minutes, or until cooked through.
While they're cooking, make the sauce (step 4), and build the burger as in step 5!
