Amazing Chicken Burgers


1 lb lean ground chicken
1 cup loosely packed finely chopped baby spinach
3/4 cup finely chopped roasted peppers
1 1/2- 2 Tbsp pesto
1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
salt & pepper
fresh mozzarella
whole grain sandwich thins


In a bowl mix together the chicken, spinach, roasted peppers, pesto, bread crumbs, salt and pepper.
Form into 3 equal sized patties.
Cook on a hot grill pan for about 5-6 mins per side, depending on thickness and temp of the grill (pan), or until the juices run clear. Top with fresh mozzarella and place a bowl overtop to allow the steam to melt the cheese.


We've cut down big time on beef in our house in our continued attempt in getting healthier. Don't get me wrong, I will not pass up a beautiful steak!! To cut back a bit I have been subbing out ground turkey and chicken in place of ground beef in meatballs, meatloaf and burgers!

Typically chicken burgers are bland and dry, not this one!!! I am so happy with the way these came out! I used lean ground chicken, roasted peppers, baby spinach and pesto!!!! Topped with fresh mozzarella and in place of a big roll, I used a whole grain sandwich thin.... this is a HUGE winner!!!!
