Ingredients

Burger sauce:

  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Burgers:

  • 1 pound ground chicken breast
  • 1 large clove garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh oregano chopped
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (I used Italian flavored)
  • 2 tablespoons mayo
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Serve with: hamburger buns, butter leaf lettuce, tomato, avocado, red onion, etc. optional, to taste

Instructions

  • Make the burger sauce by mixing the sauce ingredients together (mayo, mustard, lemon juice, smoked paprika, and salt & pepper). Taste and adjust as needed.
  • Oil and pre-heat your grill to medium-high heat.
  • Chop the chives and oregano, and prepare your toppings.
  • In a medium to large bowl, add the ground chicken, chives, oregano, minced garlic, lemon juice, breadcrumbs, mayo, and salt & pepper. Using your hands, gently mix everything together, taking care to not over handle the mixture.
  • Form burger patties one by one and place them on a sheet of wax paper. You should be able to make six average-size burger patties or four larger ones. Using your thumb, create a depression in the center of each patty so they cook evenly.
  • Cook the burger patties until internal temperature is at least 165F. Cooking time really depends on your grill and the thickness of the patties. Mine took 5 minutes on the first side and 4 minutes on the second side (gas BBQ).
  • Once the burgers are cooked, you can toast the buns for about 30 seconds on each side if desired.
  • Assemble burgers by spreading the sauce onto each bun and adding the burger patties and toppings.

Notes

  • See more tips & tricks within the blog post.
  • Chicken is safe to eat when it's reached an internal temperature of 165F. Use an instant read thermometer to test for doneness. Overcooked chicken burgers will be dry.
  • Nutritional information is provided as a courtesy only and should be construed as an estimate rather than a guarantee. Ingredients can vary and Salt & Lavender makes no guarantees to the accuracy of this information. Nutrition for this recipe is just for the burger patties since the toppings are so subjective.
