1 1/2 lbs ground chicken
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp ketchup
2 tbsps dried parsley (1/3 cup minced fresh)
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
4 whole grain buns
Cheese, lettuce, tomato, relish, pickles, mayonnaise, coleslaw, grilled vegetables
Combine all ingredients thoroughly. Shape into 6 patties. With the back of a teaspoon, make a dent in the center of each burger. This helps the center of the burgers cook faster.
Preheat barbecue on medium heat. Grill burgers with the barbecue lid down, until a meat thermometer inserted into the burgers reads 175F (about 9 minutes per side). Serve on whole wheat buns topped with your favourite burger toppings. Coleslaw made with red and green cabbage goes very well with these burgers.
Tip: Double this recipe and freeze the extra raw burgers in a single layer between sheets of wax paper. Once frozen, wrap the burgers in wax paper then tightly in foil. Freeze for up to 6 months.
