Now this is dinner done right.

Packed with juicy shredded chicken, this delicious burger from @kirstyfletcher is really something to sink your teeth into. Featuring a light brioche bun, smooth cream cheese base, tangy BBQ pulled chicken, and a sprinkling of oozing melted cheddar, it’s a flavour sensation that hits the spot and then some. Instantly sold? I thought so.

Makes 2


  • 2 brioche buns
  • 130 g chicken breast
  • 40 g Sugar-Free Sauce (BBQ)
  • 40 g light cream cheese
  • 20 g light cheddar cheese
  • Salt & pepper to season



First, season your chicken breast with salt & pepper (and any additional seasonings of choice), and then cook in your air fryer for 10-12 minutes at 200°C. Make sure it’s completely cooked through and no pink bits remain. If you don’t have an air fryer, you can oven bake the chicken instead for 20-30 minutes at 200°C.


Once the chicken is cooked, pull apart and shred using a knife and fork.


Add a generous squirt of Sugar-Free BBQ Sauce to the shredded chicken and stir through to evenly coat everything.


Grab your brioche buns and spread them with light cream cheese.


Split the pulled BBQ chicken mixture between the two buns and then sprinkle with grated cheese to complete the burger.


Place into your air fryer or a preheated oven for a couple of minutes until the cheese has melted and your bun is slowly toasted.


Remove and serve up immediately!
