Chicken Burgers with a Kick

Ingredients:

Chicken Patties

  • 1 onion
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • 1 ½ lbs ground chicken (turkey works too)
  • 1 T sriracha
  • ¼ C chopped pickled jalapenos
  • 1 ½ t salt
  • 1 t pepper
  • 1 t paprika
  • 1 t cumin
  • ½ t chili powder
  • ¼ t cayenne pepper
  • ¼ C chopped cilantro

Jalapeno Cilantro Mayo

  • 1 C mayo
  • 2 t lime juice
  • ½ t salt
  • ½ t pepper
  • 2 T chopped pickled jalapenos
  • Handful of chopped cilantro

Toppings

  • Red onion
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Sharp cheddar cheese

Instructions:

Chicken Patties

  1. Saute onion in an olive oil coated skillet until onions are almost translucent. Add crushed garlic and saute for 2 more minutes. Scoop into a large bowl.
  2. In the bowl with sauteed veggies, combine the rest of the ingredients and mix well (I typically use my hands for this part). Meat mixture will be softer and more sticky than hamburger. Form patties a little larger than the buns you have, and cook in a skillet for about 7 minutes on each side (keep the temperature lower than medium as to not burn each side). Cook until inner temp reaches 165 fahrenheit.

Jalapeno Cilantro Mayo

  1. Combine all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Serve burgers on your bun of choice with jalapeno mayo, tomato, red onion, lettuce, and sharp cheddar cheese!
