Improvising. Here in Portugal, we cannot get chicken mince outside of Christmas. What I did instead was make Lidl chicken burgers into quarters and used these instead. You can do the same and it’s a great way to use up chicken burgers.
Dipping. For my dipping sauce I added mayonnaise to a bowl with lemon juice and paprika and it was delicious.
