Fully loaded Cajun chicken burgers

This is from one of my favourite recipe websites http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/ which I check regularly for inspiration in the kitchen. This recipe, though simple, is a nice alternative to burgers or plain chicken breasts.
Fully loaded Cajun chicken burgers
  • 4 skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 rashers smoked bacon
  • 2 avocados
  • 4 ciabatta rolls, split
  • 4 thin slices of your favourite cheese
  • 4 small handfuls baby spinach leaves
  • mayonnaise , to serve (optional)

FOR THE CAJUN SEASONING

  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  1. Mix  seasoning ingredients together with black pepper and salt, then set aside. Heat grill to high. On a board, flatten out chicken , then drizzle half the oil over and toss in the seasoning until completely coated. Heat remaining oil in large frying pan, sizzle chicken for 5 mins on each side until firm, push to one side of the pan, then fry the bacon for a few mins until cooked.
  2. While the chicken is cooking, halve, stone, peel and slice avocados, toast the cut sides of the buns. Cover tops of the buns with cheese, then grill until melted.
  3. To assemble the burgers, spread the buns with mayonnaise if you want, top with a handful of spinach, then a rasher of bacon. To keep the avocado in place, slice the chicken, then alternate between a slice of chicken and avocado. Top with the bun.
