Makes 8 Mini Burgers

2 tblsp olive oil

1 onion finely chopped

6 sage leaves, finely chopped

2 chicken breasts, skinless, diced

1 firm pear peeled, cored and grated



• Place a small fry pan over medium heat, add a tbsp of the olive oil and fry the onion and sage for a couple of minutes.

• Tip the cooked onion mixture into a food processor with the chicken and pear. Season with salt and black pepper and pulse for about a minute or until the chicken looks like mince.

• Shape the chicken mixture into small balls, then flatten them slightly to make mini patties.

• Place a large frying pan over medium heat and add the remaining olive oil. Fry the patties gently in the pan for a few minutes on each side, turning them carefully to ensure they are brown all over and cooked through.

• Serve with dipping sauce.
