These were so easy and quick to make, and taste amazing! Next time we’re making them on the grill, which will probably be even better!
- 1 lb ground chicken
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 1 small zucchini, shredded
- 1 medium carrot, shredded
- 1 tsp chili power
- 1/4 tsp ground cumin
- 1/8 tsp ground red pepper (cayenne)
- 3/4 tsp salt
- whole wheat hamburger buns
- lettuce & tomato (optional topping for burgers)
You’ll need a medium batter bowl, a piece of wax paper or a plastic plate, and a large skillet (sprayed with non-stick cooking spray).
In medium bowl combine chicken, green onions, zucchini, carrot, and spices and blend until mixed. I found mixing with my hands to be the best method.
On the wax paper or plate, shape mixture into 4 patties, pressing firmly so they won’t fall apart.
Heat your prepared skillet over medium hight heat for a few minutes, then place patties in hot skillet, cover and cook for 5 minutes, then flip and cooke 5 minutes more. Keep flipping until cooked through (either use a meat thermometer to make sure it’s at least 165 degrees F, or cut into a patty to make sure it’s not pink inside).
Serve with lettuce & tomato and or your choice of condiments…
