Mountain Burger

Posted in Chicken, Recipes

You may ask why this is called a Mountain Burger?  The reason is that my son orders this burger occasioanlly from a chicken place on our local high street.  I know we can do better by making a healthier grilled version with a low fat cheese, wholemeal burger buns and chicken steaks with a low salt marinade.
