First of all, let me tell you that the Fresh Market has non-antibiotic, non-hormon boneless, skinless chicken breast every Tuesday for 2.99 per pound. The ground Chicken is also 2.99 per pound. I had laid out ground chicken for dinner yesterday but I was not really sure of what I was going to make with it. While looking in my fridge I decided to make Chicken Burgers. We do not eat a lot of bread so I came up with something a little different. Also, I needed to clear out a few veggies from my refridge so I used what I had. I cleaned the fridge and made dinner. Two birds with one stone!
I needed to use the brussel sprouts and spinach before they went bad so I placed the burger on a bed of wilted garlic spinach with a fresh cut tomato and diced red onions.
The spinach is cooked in olive oil that I sliced fresh garlic up in. Then I just watched the spinach and stired it until it was done.
The brussel sprouts have 1 inch peice of fresh ginger, 1 garlic clove and butter in them. I sauteed them until they were ready. I don’t like real soft, smushy brussel sprouts so mine are a little under cooked.I squeezed a fresh lemon half over the top at end of cooking them.
Here is the recipe for the burgers:
1 pound ground chicken
1/2 carton of mushrooms chopped
1 large or 2 small garlic cloves diced small
1/2 cup raw bacon chopped
1/2 cup gorgonzola cheese crumbled
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup heavy cream
Make burgers. I made 5 good size burgers from mine.
I live in an apartment right now and I do not have my grill so I pan seared each side for about 2 minutes and then put them in the oven at 350* for 15 minutes to finish cooking. Remember, this is not beef so we need to cook it all the way through.
It was the most flavorable burger I have ever had! There was a party going on in my mouth! Beleive me, you have got to try this one. Happy cooking!
