My sister Sara first introduced me to this chicken burger recipe and I LOVE it. Now I make them on a regular basis. Chicken burgers are a nice break from typical hamburgers and much healthier for you. They are super simple to make, full of flavor and they pair perfectly with the garlic french fry recipe that I already shared.
What you will need:
1 cup good red wine .. you can eyeball it
1 package ground chicken
1/4 c. salsa
1/4 c. diced onion
2-3 cloves fresh garlic minced (I love garlic)
salt and pepper to taste
monterey jack cheese sliced
The first step (which might very well be the most important) is to pour the red wine into a glass of your choosing.
Sip liberally throughout the remaining steps.
Mix all remaining ingredients into a bowl. (You really need to get in there and mix it with your hands which is why I start with the wine)
Divide and form into patties. I usually get 4 burgers from 1 package of chicken.
Heat olive oil over medium heat
Place burger patties in pan and cook for approx 5 minutes on each side (you could also do this on a grill)
Add cheese and place on a toasted onion roll
