So, it’s been cold, wet, and yucky outside here today. I had a few errands to run and picked up some ground chicken while I was out. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it, so on to Pinterest I went! I love Pinterest. I just wish I had the funds to make all the food and projects I’ve pinned. Anyone else have that problem? Surely I’m not the only one….right? My husband says I’m a Pinterest and Food Network junkie. Haha he’s probably right, but shhh we won’t tell him I said that.
I hope the weather isn’t as yucky for you as it has been for me today. Cold, rainy, sleety weather isn’t my favorite. Is sleety a word? No? Ahh it is now…for me anyway.
Okay, on to the food!
Chili Lime Cilantro Chicken Burgers
1 ½ lbs ground chicken
1 ½ teaspoon chili powder (I miss read this and put 1 1/2 table spooons…oops)
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 ¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
1/3 cup finely diced green onion (I used white onion)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 ½ tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/3 cup breadcrumbs or panko
2 tablespoons mayonnaise (I didn’t add any to my burger)
I also added about a table spoon or so of chopped cilantro
Your favorite Burger Buns
Mix together all the ingredients and then refrigerate for about 15-30 minutes.
Make 4-6 patties and either grill or pan fry. These are much softer than ground beef burgers so if you grill them be sure to brush them with a little oil prior to grilling.
I served with avocado salsa (see recipe below) on a whole grain white bun. You can add cheese, lettuce, tomato, or whatever you like. For me the salsa was enough. Oh and a side of sweet potato fries! 🙂
