KingMidget's Ramblings

Pull up a chair. Let's talk.

Chicken Burgers








Every now and then I try to go healthier.  Typically with only partial success.  With a busy day for most of us, I thought about just grilling burgers and then thought I could at least make them chicken burgers.  A little healthier.  What is a burger though if fries don’t come along with it?  So, there you have it.  A chicken burger on a homemade ciabatta roll, with jack cheese and sliced avocado.  And french fries.

Here’s the recipe:

1 lb. ground chicken

2 chopped green onions

2 TBSP chopped cilantro

2 tsp chopped garlic

salt and pepper

a bit of lemon or lime juice


I mixed this and the patties were somewhat … gooey.  So, I added some bread crumbs.  Maybe about 1/3 of a cup.  I fried the patties in a skillet, topped with the cheese and served.  Sad thing is that while the ciabatta was good, the best part of the meal was the french fries, brought frozen from Safeway and heavily salted.

      You’re one of two commenters impressed by the ciabatta. Maybe that should have been the featured item from this meal.

    The homemade ciabatta roll makes you epic at cooking. Looks really good.

      I’ve tried ciabatta every now and then. This effort was better than any of those earlier efforts.

      Interesting thing … one of the few things my wife and I agree on these days … the chicken burgers were rather bland. I think they needed a little bit of something to spice them up. The ciabatta was good. The salt … I mean, the fries were excellent.

        Try jalapeno pepper…even a dash of hot sauce will add a zing that will help 🙂 I like sweet potato fries…yummy

        Well, that’s where the differences begin. Would have loved to have the jalapeno in mine. 😉

        It wouldn’t have been bland then! lol
