Ground Chicken Taco Burgers

Recipe by  

"My husband and I are trying to add more variety to our diets, and cut back on red meat, so I came up with this ground chicken burger, and it is delish! I used my George Foreman grill to cook them. I served them with the spicy baked sweet potato fries found on this Website. They make a nice substitution for a regular cheeseburger and French fries."

  1. Preheat outdoor grill for medium-high heat. Lightly oil grill grate, and place about 4 inches from heat source.
  2. Mix the ground chicken, onion, garlic, taco seasoning, and egg together in a bowl until thoroughly blended. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide chicken mixture evenly and form into 4 soft patties.
  3. Cook the chicken patties on the preheated grill until meat is no longer pink and juices run clear, 5 to 8 minutes per side, depending on thickness. To serve, place each patty on one half of a hamburger bun, top with a slice of cheese, avocado slices, and desired amounts of jalapeno peppers and salsa. Cover with remaining half of bun.

WOW! These were really good burgers. A little hard to handle, and not very pleasing to look at but the taste was 5 stars, easily. EDIT: Wet your hands before you make the patties this helps with the sticky meat.

Pretty good. I did add bread crumbs because it was very gooey. I used the george foreman and it was pretty quick and easy.

Totally great! I did add bread crumbs as well. Very moist burger with lots of flavour from the taco seasoning. Great too with the avacado and salsa. My husband loved them which was great because he is a big red-meat-burger-guy. Will definitely do again and have passed on to my friends!

I love this recipe. I make it into taco salad and used tortilla chips with shredded lettuce, cheese, salsa, olives and green onions. Great salad!

okay so i know it is cheating to add a review to your own recipe but i love it, so i'm gonna give myself 5 stars ;) so, on the breadcrumb issue, if you are cooking these on an outdoor grill i would probably suggest adding breadcrumbs. I left them out to cut out unneeded carbs and calories and just used my George Foreman grill. so just wanted to clarify the reason why there are no crumbs in this recipe. :) thanks everyone for the great reviews and ideas for mixing it up!

Excellent! Used about 3/4 packet taco seasoning, added 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, fresh minced garlic. Served with guacamole, sour cream and fresh salsa. Family and guests loved it!

I really enjoyed this as did my husband. I too had to add breadcrumbs to this however as it was very gooey. I cooked the burgers on my Foreman grill, and dressed them w/lettuce, tomato, onion, pickled jalapenos, salsa & guacamole. I think this would make a great meatloaf. You could either add breadcrumbs to it or oatmeal to help bind this together. If I were making a meatloaf with this I would add some chopped up jalapenos, anaheim chiles and/or some pasillas. I would also probably top this with a Mexican hot tomato sauce like El Pato (instead of ketchup that some people do with a traditional meatloaf)......

We loved these. I added some bread crumbs to hold together, and served them in folded-over tortillas with a little salsa, cheese and sour cream. Everyone gobbled them up -- even my super picky daughter!
