Chicken Burgers

My Chicken Burgers are easy, tasty and quick. You can create an amazing meal around these burgers. Serve over rice or in a bun.

I wanted to make a step by step instructions for these Chicken Burgers mainly because I did not like the one that I did previously for this recipe.

A fun part was actually eating grilled food. Nobody ever comped about that one, right?

It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon; windy, but sunny and warm, a perfect April day.

The kids were running around, playing soccer, teasing each other and laughter filled my backyard, while my husband, Nebbs, and I were debate arguing who can make better steaks.

Seriously, we girls, cannot win over the damn grill whatsoever. I grabbed my camera after “I” prepared food to be grilled and just took pictures.

Well, I was just a little, itsy-bitsy pissed off, cause his steaks and pork chops were looking and tasting better than mine.

In spite of that, I will admit, men know their way around a grill better than most women.

Nevertheless, in my defense, I was not bad. I would never admit to him that he can grill better than me.

Chicken Burgers

Oh, I would not give him that satisfaction, nor did I feel the need to boost his ego more.

One thing is certain, never stand between your man and a grill, or poker nights with his boys, or remote control.

Also, asking him to ask for directions is like slapping him on the back of the head with a heavy skillet, etc.

SPICY DRY RUB SEASONING RECIPE

The list is really endless. They all act macho, but in reality, they are more emo than us girls when we are pms-ing. Just saying. But all so true!

Recipe

Anyways…

Look at all these beauties! Just so you know, I made them on my own… Yup! Do you know what makes me the happiest?

If you guessed grill marks, then you are correct. When I flipped those burgers and saw it, I was breaking a happy dance around the grill.

They were delightful, flavorful and in another word orgasmic. I hope you make them soon, too.

Originally, I wanted to name them breakfast chicken burgers.

However, looking from my perspective who eats a few bites for breakfast. Sometimes nothing at all, I could not eat this burger for breakfast even if you try to bribe me.

So, you can add whatever you like in with your burger. Bacon comes to my mind! I so added those slices of bacon with that chicken patty.

The serving SIZE:

I can easily say this is for two people. If you’re a foodie as well as your partner or a friend, you will eat this pound of grilled chicken in a heartbeat.

However, looking at the portion size, 4 people could be satisfied.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a medium-size mixing bowl, add ground chicken, spicy rub mixture, chopped parsley, and oil. Mix it with your hand (you can use gloves) or with a spoon until you combine the mixture. Spicy Dry Rub Recipe
  2. Make patties a size of the bun (with this amount of ground chicken you can make 4 large patties or slightly smaller 5). Sprinkle a dry rub mix a dash or two on each patty. The patties will shrink when they are cooking, but not too much. You can also cook them on the indoor grill or on a lightly greased frying pan.
  3. Cook for a few minutes on at each side or until safe internal temperature: 170°F (well-done). USDA Safe Minimum 165°F, however, I like chicken at 170°F.
  4. Place buns on your grill or frying pan to get a bit burnt and crunchy on the inside. Lastly, build your burger.

Notes

  • If you do not want to make Dry rub mixture, these two brands I've enjoyed for more than a few years: McCormick, Weber; I love their spices and tried so many. Just use/buy what you prefer or like, and of course, what actually is sold in your area. It's supposed to be a blend that you enjoy cooking with.

However, you can always add:

Salt to taste (about 2 tsp.)

2 tsp. Ground black pepper,

1/4 onion, chopped/or shredded

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 tsp. Red hot chili flakes,

Other spices: 1 tsp.

For each:

Rosemary, thyme, parsley. (If it's fresh, finely chop, and you can add more because dry herbs are more powerful/fragrant than fresh 2 tbsp. Oil A squeeze of lemon juice/about 1 tbsp. Internal temperature: Ground meats are riskier because the contaminated meat surface is broken into small fragments and spread through the mass.

The interior of a raw burger usually does contain bacteria and is safest if cooked well done. I clean my grill GRATES with bacon just before placing a meat for grilling, however, if you DO NOT eat bacon try using Chicken Skin.

Bulgogi Ciabatta Sandwich

Summer is here, and that means grilling season started. I decided to make a roundup of my Top 10 the most popular grilling recipes.

I love walking around my neighborhood, especially on the weekend evenings and just inhaling the aromatic air that goes under my nose from almost every house. Tempting huh? You get hungry in an instant!

One good thing is that we have nice big, man-made grill pit so the grilling was never a problem almost all year round because we have few months or real winter. Although the rainy season can ruin that excitement.

check out more grill recipes.

There is something about grilling in the summertime, grilling on a special holiday or event. Food ends up really special and memorable.

Usually, we eat and remember what we made a previous year… funny, I know! But I guess that is why it is so memorable.

Salad with Chipotle Grilled Watermelon

Salad with Chipotle Grilled Watermelon

This week I was asked to make a wacky grilled recipe using Mazola Corn Oil and I was thinking hard on this one, but everything I tried making was not wacky enough.

So I turned to the Mazola website and found a recipe for spicy grilled watermelon.

It sounded unique, but delicious and at the same time wacky. I never had grilled watermelon, so I was a little bit skeptical about the whole thing.

Honestly I am not a big fan of grilled fruits; however, since we’re being honest here, grilled watermelon did add balance, spiciness, sweetness, and juiciness to the salad.
