Chicken Pesto Burgers

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground chicken breast
  • 6 tablespoons pesto, good quality
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Provolone cheese (mozzarella would be fine as well)
  • Ciabatta buns
  • Tomatoes, optional
  • Spinach, optional

Directions

  1. In medium mixing bowl, combine chicken breast with 2 tablespoons of pesto, salt and pepper. Don’t over mix or your burgers will be tough, just enough to combine the ingredients.
  2. Heat up your grill or skillet to medium-high. Divide the ground chicken into 4 equally shaped patties.
  3. Oil your grill or skillet well, add the chicken patties and cover with aluminum foil or a grill cover. They need about 6 minutes on each side and will reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees with an instant-read thermometer. You don’t want undercooked poultry! Add a slice of provolone just before grilling.
  4. Oil your grill or skillet well, add the chicken patties and cover with aluminum foil or a grill cover. Put about a tablespoon of pesto on each bun, add the chicken burger, a slice of tomato and a couple spinach leaves. Enjoy!
