Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Cut the potato (unpeeled) into 1cm fries. Place the fries on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Season with salt and drizzle with olive oil. Toss to coat, then bake until tender, 20-25 minutes. TIP: Cut the potato to size so it cooks in time.
While the fries are baking, thinly slice the red onion. In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Cook the onion, stirring, until softened, 5-6 minutes. Add the balsamic vinegar, water and brown sugar and mix well. Cook until dark and sticky, 3-5 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl and cover to keep warm.
While the onion is cooking, thinly slice the tomato into half-moons.
Place your hand flat on top of each chicken breast and use a sharp knife to slice through horizontally to make two thin steaks. In a large bowl, combine the Italian herbs (see ingredients), the salt and a drizzle of olive oil, then season with pepper. Add the chicken breast and toss to coat.
Wash and dry the frying pan, then return to a medium-high heat. Cook the chicken until cooked through, 3-5 minutes each side (cook in batches if the pan is getting crowded). In the last 3 minutes of cook time, sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese over the chicken and cover with a lid to melt the cheese. Remove from the heat and set aside. While the cheese is melting, place the butter burger buns directly on a wire rack in the oven and bake until heated through, 3 minutes.
Slice the burger buns in half. Spread a layer of dill & parsley mayonnaise over the bases, then top with the cheesy chicken, caramelised onion, some tomato and mixed salad leaves. Serve with the fries.
