"Looks and tastes great. With the price of beef nowadays I needed a healthier and a little cheaper way to get my burger fix. You could use ground turkey instead of chicken, I would think. And toasting the buns adds another layer of flavor."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Mix ground chicken, 1/3 cup cilantro, Cheddar cheese, garlic, jalapeno pepper, lime juice, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; shape into 4 patties.
  3. Cook patties on grill until the bottom is browned, 3 to 4 minutes; flip the burgers and top with a slice of Cheddar cheese. Continue cooking until no longer pink in the center, 1 to 2 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Transfer burgers to a plate to rest until juices are reabsorbed into the meat, about 3 minutes.
  4. Put burgers onto split buns and top with guacamole and cilantro.

The fat from the shredded cheese in the ground chicken is what makes this super moist. I did not add the onion, although it calls for it, since it was not mentioned in the instructions, and I a...

Awesome! I bought a 1 pound package of ground chicken, so I just used that instead of 1-1/2 pound, but kept everything else the same. I mixed these up the day before, formed them and put them in...

I used this as a base and added and subtracted for what I had on hand and what we like. I used the cheese and some seasonings. Also added cooked bacon.

Wow! These were fantastic! I made them in a skillet rather than on the grill, and put the lid on partway through cooking. The flavors are amazing together. So good! We will make these frequ...

A hit with the entire family! As most reviewers, I used a 1lb package of ground chicken and got 4 nice, thick patties. Omitted the jalapeno since the kidlet was eating it, but added in some anch...

Excellent. The whole family loved, including the picky kids. I excluded the jalapeƱos inside the burgers, and let those who wanted them add the peppers as a topping to their burger. I also cooke...

These were great! I used ground turkey instead of chicken and they were very tasty. Super easy, full of flavor, and relatively healthy. We will definitely be making these again.

If one of the great chefs on this site could post a picture that would be fantastic.
