Chicken Burgers with Cheddar and Spinach

I first came across these Chicken Burgers when I was doing a clean eating challenge. Ever since then, these have made it into our weekly dinner rotation. They are just SO good- you have to try them!

I couldn’t find ground chicken the first time around, so I used ground turkey instead. They tasted just as good! Feel free to use less cheese and less panko, or even eat them without a bun. We typically eat our burgers without the bun to eliminate those extra calories.

Here is the recipe:

First, throw this into a food processor:

  • 4 oz. wilted spinach
  • 1/2 small onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 green onions, roughly chopped

Then, stir this mixture into 1 lb. ground chicken and add:

  • 2 T. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 t. soy sauce
  • 1 t. lemon juice
  • 1/2 t. chili powder
  • 1/4 c. shredded cheddar cheese

Then, add about 1/2 c. of Panko (NO EGG!), mix it all together, and form them into patties. Refrigerate for about 2 hours prior to dinner. Grill or broil.
