I'm a dork!!! I've been meaning to post this recipe for the past couple of weeks. It's literally been sitting in draft mode on my blogger dashboard. I keep telling myself that I will post it "tomorrow" and tomorrow passes and it becomes a couple weeks. So, I've finally kicked my behind and FINALLY posted it.
Anyway, I'm digging those sandwich thins from Orowheat. Rather than having a really big burger bun, I can have myself a couple nice pre-sliced pieces of bread. I remember having some ground chicken in the freezer and one of the first things that come to mind were chicken burgers. I added a simple seasonings here and there like salt, pepper, and a green onion. Also, a dash of soy sauce and some panko crumbs. Chicken in any form is one of those meats you've got to season or you'll find yourself with a bland piece of meat. The interesting thing about ground chicken that I noticed is that it doesn't shrink as much as burgers do when grilled.
Here's a simple juicy chicken burger for your summer grilling.
Grilled Chicken Sandwich
1/2 lb ground chicken
2 green onion - chopped
1 tsp soy sauce
1/3 c panko crumbs
1 medium tomato - sliced
4-slices of bread
shredded mozzarella cheese
In a bowl mix together the green onion, panko, soy sauce. and season with a little salt and pepper.
Divide into two equal patties. Set aside.
Prepare your grill or skillet. When ready grill each side 2-4 minutes until is forms a nice light brown crust.When cooked. Let the patties rest for a couple minutes to let the juices redistribute. Toast your bread, or bun and spread some mayo and/or mustard. Top with a couple slices of tomato and Voila.
Best enjoyed warm with a nice soda to wash it down.
