Recipe 11: Chicken Burgers

I combined two recipes again... One from Food Network, the other from Allrecipes.com
  • 3 tablespoons grated sweet onion (or finely, finely minced)
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 cup fresh sliced mushrooms
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 1 pound ground white meat chicken
  • 1 cup coarse to fine fresh bread crumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon coarse grained salt
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • Cracked black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
Saute the onion with the garlic first, then the bell pepper, then the mushrooms, tomatoes and carrots, all to desired tenderness. Set aside and allow all vegetables to cool completely. 

Place chicken in a mixing bowl. Using a rubber spatula, fold bread crumbs, veggies, cayenne, salt and pepper. Divide chicken meat into 4 or 5 piles (you decide which portion size is best for you) and using your hands, shape into patties. Heat olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat and fry patties until golden and cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Serve immediately.

Results: I also added a bit of dry mustard.  These... these right here??  AWESOME!! The veggies give it great flavor and moisture and really make 1 lb. of meat STREEEETCH!  Do the carrot!  You could also add some peppers.  Man I could talk about these burgers ALL.DAY!  So so good!  I put leftover blue cheese dressing, feta, baby spinach leaves on them and served with a side of hand curled previously frozen but really delicious curly fries.  YUMMYYYYY!!

sha... Oh no! LOLOL! I try to stick really closely to recipes the first time I make something since I figure the creator had a reason to do it like that. For online recipes, I like to read multiple reviews so I know what works & what needs to be tweaked in each recipe. ROTFL @ hubby! Give him a few weeks to forget, tell him it's turkey & try again.

k... they were awesome! Try these!

Kali... LOLOL! They better not! Delicious! Can't wait to hear how it goes!
