Recipe by BakinBaby

A chicken burger flavored with chilie's, ginger and topped with provolone cheese. This is a popular dish, and originated at Bondi Beach, Australia. I'm posting this for the Zaar Tour #5.

i think you were trying to do francesinha, which is a sandwich with all kinds of meat inside (grilled beef, ham, sausage) and cheese, and then covered with cheese and a spicy tomatoe and whisky and beer sauce. This is made in the north of Portugal. I have never seen chicken burgers served like this and they are not that popular anyway. The francesinha, as the name says (little french) comes initially from the croque monsieur, a french well-known sandwich. See on wikipedia about francesinha. Anyway, this should be a nice dish:)
