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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. If using chicken cutlets, rinse chicken and pat dry.
  2. Cut into 2-inch pieces and pulse in a food processor until coarsely ground; transfer to a bowl.
  3. If using ground chicken, break apart into bowl.
  4. Now the recipe is the same for both the chicken cutlets and ground chicken.
  5. Season chicken with salt and pepper.
  6. With hands, mix in bell pepper, cilantro and chili sauce until just combined; do not overmix.
  7. Form into 8 one-half inch thick patties.
  8. Preheat grill.
  9. Lightly oil rack.
  10. Grill burgers on rack over moderate heat 5 minutes.
  11. Flip burgers and top each with 1 slice cheese; continue to grill until cooked through, about 5 minutes more.
  12. Meanwhile, grill buns, cut sides down, until golden brown, about 1 minute.
  13. Arrange burgers in buns with onion and lettuce.

Deliciously different tasting burger. I only had 1 lb. of ground chicken, so I cut back the chili sauce to 1/2 cup and used a small red pepper. I found the choice of condiments to be just right. In my opinion, too much relish/ketchup/mustard would have over shadowed the flavors in the meat. :)
