For the eggs, place in a saucepan of cold water, cover and bring to the boil. Remove the saucepan from heat and allow the eggs to stand for 5 minutes for soft boiled. Remove from the saucepan using a slotted spoon and peel over running cold water. Cut in slices


For the dressing, mix the ingredients together and shake well.


Chicken: make a small slit on one side of each chicken breast and stuff with the blue cheese. Secure with cocktail sticks.

Mix the rub ingredients together and rub the chicken. Grill for 6 minutes each side until cooked through. Set as upside to rest for 5 minutes.


For the bacon, place the bacon directly onto the grill and cook for 5 minutes a side until it starts to brown. 

Brush maple syrup on one side and turn. After a minute brush on the top and turn. Both sides now have maple syrup. 

Give it a minute or so turning to caramelize the bacon and take off. Let cool and crisp.

 (Tip, if using the oven, place the bacon on a baking sheet and bake in an oven at 200C for about 15 minutes until it starts to brown. Brush it with maple syrup and give it another 5 mins. Take it out to cool and crisp.)


For the bun, butter the insides, place on the braai with the buttered side down for 4 minutes until golden and crispy.


To assemble the burger, place the buns opened on a board , top the bottom halves with lettuce, watercress and tomato slice.

Now top with stuffed chicken, bacon strips avo and egg.

Drizzle with dressing, lid on, burger stick in and serve.
