Serves 4, 1 burger per serving
One of our favorite burgers to pop on the grill is this flavorful Chicken Burger. Using chicken in place of ground beef makes for a leaner burger. Finish these burgers with a whole-grain bun, veggies and a slice of low-fat cheese!
1/4 small bell pepper
1/4 small red onion
1 pound lean ground chicken, turkey, or beef
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon canola oil
1/4 cup water
Large skillet with lid
1.) Rinse and finely chop bell pepper and onion.
2.) In a medium bowl, combine bell pepper, onion, ground meat, garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, salt and pepper.
3.) Divide mixture into 4 pieces. Form pieces into patties about 4 inches across.
4.) In a large skillet over medium-heat, heat oil. Add burgers. Cook until browned on both sides about 5 minutes per side. Add water to the pan. Cook and cover
until burgers reach 165 degrees, about 10 minutes more.
