Fast Food at home on a Friday - Portuguese Chicken Burgers

These are sooooo good.  Really. Might be a bit spicy for kids but you could cut down on a few spices I have noted with an asterisk (*) if you were ging to give them to kids.  These are not only a wonderful, easy, tasty meal but the chicken fillets would even be fantastic chopped up in a salad, or just on your BBQ.

Give them a try and tell me what you think!

600g Chicken thigh fillets

Chicken marinade
1/4 finely diced onion
1 garlic clove
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
