Chicken Burgers

Chicken burgers were for dinner tonight. It is one of those recipes which fortunately I have learned to wing - through some ingredients together with ground chicken, shape them into burgers and voila ready for the grill. Last nights burgers were inspired by ingredients I had on hand from the Crispy Yogurt Chicken a la Pioneer Woman. So while my measuring last night was far from exact, I will try to back track correctly for you.

1.3 pounds ground chicken (yup that's how Perdue's measured)
1 cup Panko Flakes (I had the Japanese kind on hand)
a handful chopped scallions
a handful diced flat leaf parsley
1/4 cup diced chives
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 small clove garlic minced
a dash of lemon juice

  • Mix Ingredients together
  • Shape into large patties as chicken shrinks a lot when cooked.
  • Grill on gas or charcoal grill
  • Serve on sliced olive bread with a piece of lettuce and the dressing of your choice (ketchup, ranch, etc.)
