You can prepare the Red Onion Relish, burger patties and burger filling while the foccacia buns are rising & cooking to save time. 


Burger patties can also be frozen (as long as chicken has not been previously frozen). Place a sheet a baking paper between each patty when freezing for ease when unfrozen. 


Chicken can also be substituted with beef or lamb.
