HOMEMade burgers

50g / 2oz rolled oats
½ onion finely chopped
2 tspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tspoon dried mixed herbs
1 egg, beaten 

Place all the ingredients except the egg in a bowl or food processor and mix well.

lemon chicken kebabs

450g / 1lb skinless, boneless chicken

Mix together all the ingredients in a bowl except the chicken. Cut the chicken into small cubes – use breast or thighs. Thread the chicken cubes onto barbeque skewers.
