Chicken Chili Burgers

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Lainey39

This is a recipe I got from Ladies Home Journal. The original recipe calls for chicken cutlets, but I used ground chicken to make it easier. If using ground chicken, just omit the first two steps in the directions.

A lovely simple burger, I also added some chopped baby spinach & grated carrot, served on buns with lettuce, tomato, onion & sweet chilli mayo, mmm delish!
