These burgers are really really good. Easy to make and I must say, the the coleslaw really makes this even better so don’t skip it! This recipe comes from Rachel Ray’s “Book of 10” and the only problems I had involved the cheese: Rachel says to dice it and I did, but uh, when I cooked it, it squished out all over the place, making for some rather messy burgers. Oh well, next time I’d use shredded as I think it would keep it more intact with the meat and not so much all over the pan!
Chicken Cheddar BBQ Burgers
1 c. ranch dressing
juice of 1 lime
1/2 c. fresh flat leaf parsely, chopped
1/4 c. fresh cilantro, chopped
salt and pepper
small bag of chopped red cabbage, or half a head, chopped
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced (I didn’t have this so I skipped it)
3 scallions, thinly sliced (you will use the rest in the burger)
3 scallions, thinly sliced
2 pounds ground chicken
1/2 c. of your fav. bbq sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray’s, that stuff rocks!)
1/4 pound sharp cheddar cheese, diced (um don’t do this, just do the shredded….)
4 kaiser rolls, split and toasted
This one is easy…all you do is mix the coleslaw ingredients together in a small bowl and set it aside. Then, on to the burgers!
In a separate bowl, combine the meat, cheese, scallions and bbq sauce and form four equal patties. Cook on a grill or in a grill pan on high heat for
5-6 mins per side. I covered mine to make sure they cooked all the way through as a raw chicken burger would be highly unappetizing!
Toast the buns and add a burger topped with coleslaw. Enjoy! Its delicious and different!
