Bun-less Chicken Burger
Easy to make burger patties made with ground chicken and grilled to perfection. Serve with a bun or without buns.
- 1.2 lb ground chicken meat
- 3 tbsp chopped chives
- 1-2 garlic cloves minced
- 2/3 cup low-fat shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 Tbsp low-fat mayo
- 2 Tbsp no-sugar-added ketchup
- 1 Tbsp olive oil to grease the grill
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp ground pepper
To serve with:
- lettuce for buns
- sliced Roma tomato
- Thinly sliced red onion
- low-fat mayo
- no-sugar-added ketchup
In a large mixing bowl, combine ground chicken, chives, garlic, cheese, mayo, ketchup, salt, and pepper. Mix everything together until well combined.
Next, divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and shape into balls. Flatten the balls into 1/2-inch-thick patties.
If using an outdoor grill or a grill pan, brush the grill grates with some oil and preheat for 5 minutes.
Place the burgers onto the preheated grill and cook for about 5 minutes on each side, until charred and cooked through.
Serve the patties in lettuce buns with any toppings you desire!
Place leftovers in a container and store in the fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat the burger patties in the microwave when ready to eat. You can freeze the patties for up to 3 months.
