Throw these together in a flash and enjoy on a whole wheat bun or over a green salad. You can't go wrong with these spicy chicken burgers!
I don't eat (or cook with) a ton of red meat so cooking chicken or turkey burgers once in a while is a fun way to mix-up dinner options, especially in the summer. These patties are also great leftover (often times the flavor is even more rich the next day) so use them for lunch the next day or break them up for tacos or enchiladas.
3 lb ground chicken breast
2 TB Trader Joe's taco seasoning
1 large jalapeño, deseeded and diced
1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons coconut oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1. In a large bowl, mix together the chicken breast, taco seasoning, jalapeño, salt, pepper and cilantro until well mixed. Form into patties about 1/2 inch thick.
2. Melt coconut oil in a large skillet. Cook patties until cooked through (about 5-7 min on each side).
3. Remove from heat and cool slightly before serving.
