Smoky Chicken Burgers

Smoky Chicken Burgers

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ pounds ground chicken, one pound ground dark meat and half pound ground breast
  • 1 cups spinach chopped coarsely
  • 1 red pepper (or color of your choice), finely chopped
  • Handful of finely chopped chives (if desired)
  • 1 T smoked paprika
  • 1 T kosher salt (less, if you prefer)
  • Black pepper as desired
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • half a medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 T extra virgin olive oil, plus more to sauté

Place the chicken in a bowl. Combine well. Add the onion, red pepper, spinach, parsley, garlic and mix to combine. Sprinkle the smoked paprika over, and then the salt and black pepper.

Drizzle the chicken mixture with 2 T olive oil, mix it in and form four patties, then place them in well-oiled pan on medium heat. Cook 5 minutes on each side.

TIP: I like to keep the mixture in the fridge in a mason jar for freshness and prepare these throughout the week.
