  1. Preheat the grill to hot.
  2. First mince the chicken, cut away any tendons or pieces of fat with a sharp knife, then cut the chicken into 2 inch cubes. Place the cubed bits of chicken in a food processor, pulsing until you get a coarse paste. Combine the chicken mince, red pepper, green chilli, dried breadcrumbs, ground spices and seasoning in a large mixing bowl. Mix well using your hands until you have an even burger mixture. Line a baking tray with nonstick baking paper. Shape the burger mixture into 4 even-sized patties and arrange on the baking tray. Grill for 12-14 minutes, turning occasionally until the patties are browned on the outside and cooked through on the insides with no pink showing.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk together the mayonnaise, ketchup, smoked paprika and seasoning until you have a smooth burger sauce. Cover and chill until needed.
  4. Remove the patties from the grill when ready. To assemble to burgers, arrange some rocket on the bottom halves of the buns. Top with a chicken patty, then spoon some of the burger sauce on top. Arrange the sliced red onion, sliced avocado and diced plum tomato on top of the sauce. Sit the other halves of the burger buns on top and place on serving plates.
  5. Garnish with pots of the diced tomato for garnishing and the corn tortilla chips to the side. Serve immediately.
