Chicken Burger


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.

Serves 2.



Grilled Chicken Sandwich

1/2 lb ground chicken
2 green onion - chopped
1 tsp soy sauce
pepper
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.

Looks good, Jenn. I make a great turkey burger similar to this. Much lighter feeling that a beef burger in the hot weather.

Those sandwich thins are great! My husband doesn't it when his burger is all bun - they look like a good alternative. Speak of alts, I really should have ground chicken on hand to put as another grill option. I like the soy and green onion you put in yours. 8-)

Yum! I'm always excited to try new burger recipes... This chicken burger sounds great! I have some beautiful tomatoes from our CSA and fresh mozzarella that would be perfect to top it, too... and perhaps a bit of my swiss chard pesto! I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!

No, I'm a dork! I've had a blog draft sitting in my dashboard for over a month! But I have been dealing with technical difficulties - my internet connection has been temperamental during the heatwave. Now finally catching up on your blog :) The chicken burger looks delicious, perfect for summer. Love the idea of adding panko to it, definitely going to try that. I recently bought a package of those thin sandwich buns too - love that I don't feel too guilty afterwards!

I haven't had those Orowheat thins yet, but I keep hearing good things! Maybe I'll give 'em a whirl the next time I'm making a quinoa burger. ;)
