Italian chicken burgers
Updated On: Sep 17 2013 05:14:57 AM CDT
Some supermarkets sell ground chicken, but it takes only seconds to produce at home. To grind the chicken, quarter the raw boneless, skinless breast halves; drop into the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Process with the on-off button to chop and the chicken will be ready in a flash.
Serve these burgers on toasted buns or slices of Italian bread with tomato slices and lettuce.
16 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, ground
½ cup cooked rice (white or brown)
1 tablespoon minced fresh basil, or 1 teaspoon dried basil
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon minced onion
1 clove garlic, minced
½ teaspoon pepper
Dash of salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
Transfer the ground chicken to a medium mixing bowl; stir in the remaining ingredients, except the oil for cooking. Form each mixture into 4 patties, each 4 inches in diameter and about ½-inch thick.
Heat the oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the patties and cook about 5 minutes on each side, or until they are lightly browned and cooked through. (If you prefer, the burgers can be broiled or cooked on either a stovetop or outdoor grill.)
