Grilled Chicken Burgers


  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 white onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup prepared creamy Italian salad dressing

  1. In a large mixing bowl combine ground chicken, egg, onion, bread crumbs, drained and rinsed black beans, and creamy Italian dressing.
  2. Prepare grill pan over medium-high heat (or prepare grill).
  3. Shape mixture by hand into 6 patties, 3/4 inch thick.
  4. Grill each patty on both sides until fully cooked.  (Approximately 4-5 minutes each side on our grill pan.)
  5. Check for safe meat temperature with a meat thermometer (170 degrees F)
  6. Serve with favorite burger toppings, if desired.
Hints:  Mixing with your hands insures the best texture!  The chicken and vegetable mixture makes a hearty patty that has good form and can be adapted easily by swapping in your favorite veggies.  Try spinach and feta instead of onion and black beans, for example.  These patties could also be prepared in advance and frozen for later use. Enjoy!!
