Cilantro Chicken Burgers

One of my favorite things about blogging is all the wonderful people I’ve had the opportunity to meet. One of these people is Cara. As an added bonus, she lives near Boston so I’ve had the chance to meet her, cook with her in her kitchen, and eat at an event that she catered. If you ever need a healthy idea for dinner, check her blog. She mixes flavors that I would never think to mostly because I’m not very a confident cook. Everything I’ve tried from her blog has been great.

This recipe is no exception. I didn’t have any tequila in the house, so I left it out, but I will definitely be making these again. I doubled the recipe and froze half of them to have later. I topped the burgers with some drunken peppers and served them on some sandwich thins (love those things!)

Cilantro Chicken Burgers

Yield: 6-8

Ingredients:

1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
4 large clove of garlic, minced
2/3 cup roughly chopped cilantro
zest from 1 lime
dash of lite soy sauce
freshly ground salt & pepper
1/2 cup plain oatmeal

Directions:

Preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine the burger ingredients in a food processor and pulse several times, until chicken is uniformly ground. Remove and divide into 6 or 8 portions. Shape each into a ball, place on the baking sheet, and flatten with your palm.

Broil the burgers for about 10-12 minutes total, flipping halfway through. Serve on buns with sauteed peppers and onions.

    I saw this on the first episode of Aarti Party and it looked so good to me! Kale is something I’ve also never worked with in our kitchen so I definitely want to give this recipe a try!

    I picked up all of the ingredients this morning to make the salad, and it is now sitting in my fridge waiting to be devoured for lunch. It’s GREAT! Who knew raw kale could be so good?!

    Kale is one of my favorite foods but I haven’t had it raw yet. I am bookmarking this!

    I don’t know if I could get anyone in my family to try this, but it looks so interesting! I have never tried kale, but I would like to!

    I made a massaged kale salad once but it was just “eh”. I don’t think I massaged enough. But I might have to try it again, and do it the right way, since you both loved it!

    I LOVE massaged kale – love, love, love it. It tastes completely different than “regular” – not as “green” if that makes sense. 🙂
    I also love the next food network star. I should check out Aarti’s show since this recipe sounds like it’s right up my alley. 🙂
