Good To BBQ! If you're cooking on the BBQ, preheat the grill to a medium-high heat. Cook the chicken for 8-12 minutes, turning occasionally, or until cooked through. Halve the bake-at-home burger buns and grill for 3-4 minutes or until golden

Add the chicken thigh to a medium bowl with the tandoori paste and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat.
In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat. Add the chicken thigh and cook, turning occasionally, for 10-14 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a plate to rest. TIP: Don't worry if the tandoori paste chars, it just adds to the flavour!
While the chicken is cooking, thinly slice the cucumber. Finely chop the coriander. Using a vegetable peeler, peel the carrot into ribbons (or grate if you'd prefer). Shred the cos lettuce. In a medium bowl, toss the carrot and cos lettuce together.
In a small bowl, combine the Greek yoghurt, coriander, a good squeeze of lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil. TIP: Add as much or as little lemon juice as you like, according to your taste! Season with salt and pepper
Place the bake-at-home burger buns on a plate and microwave for 1 minute. Wash out the large frying pan. Return the large frying pan to a medium-high heat. Halve the bake-at-home burger buns and toast in the frying pan for 3-4 minutes or until golden. TIP: If you don't have a microwave, you can bake the buns straight on the wire rack at 180°C/160°C fan-forced for 3 minutes, or until heated through.
Assemble your burger by spreading the bases with some of the coriander yoghurt. Top with a helping of salad, the tandoori chicken thigh and the cucumber. Finish by spooning over the remaining coriander yoghurt. TIP: Dress any remaining salad with a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar and serve on the side.
