A great chicken burger recipe! Natasha is my eldest daughter, and her eyes light up when I announce we're having these for dinner. While my husband and I eat one or two each, she easily finishes at least three. The onion can be finely chopped, but with three kids, we prefer grating it so as to hide it. I usually serve these with mashed potatoes and Caesar salad for a very comforting meal!
- extra-lean ground chicken : 1 pound
- Italian-seasoned bread crumbs, divided : 0.5 cup
- onion, finely grated : 0.5 small
- egg : 1 piece
- garlic, minced : 2 clove
- salt and ground black pepper to taste : 0 piece
- olive oil : 2 tsp
Stages of cooking
Mix ground chicken, 1/4 cup bread crumbs, onion, egg, and garlic in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
Moisten hands and shape chicken mixture, 2 tablespoons at a time, into flat, oval-shaped patties.
Spread remaining 1/4 cup bread crumbs in a shallow dish. Dip patties in bread crumbs to coat.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Cook patties in hot oil until deeply browned on the bottoms, 5 to 6 minutes. Turn patties and cook until other sides are browned, 3 to 4 minutes more.
