This is one of my Dad’s FAVORITE chicken burgers and trust me he is a tough cookie when it comes to “ground” chicken or ground turkey. I am not even much of a meat eater! I could almost be a vegetarian I just haven’t really gone the whole way and done it. I just play around with it and then eat a bit of chicken here and there. Not a fan of turkey but can stomach it around Thanksgiving and in roll-ups and stuff. It’s not like a “Oh, you’re killing the animals” kind of thing, it is just I don’t like it LOL.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Want to sneak some veggies onto your kids' plates... and enjoy it? Try these yummy "burgers"!! There are vegetable cooked within each patty, lending tons of additional flavor and keeping the meat moist. Yum.


1 medium
onion, chopped
2 tsp
garlic, minced
1 medium
red bell pepper or green bell pepper (chopped)
1 c
fresh mushrooms (optional)
2 medium
carrots, chopped
2 lb
ground chicken
1/2 c
fresh bread crumbs
1 Tbsp
old bay's seasoning
kosher salt to taste
black pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

One day I brought home this Tyson All Natural Ground Chicken and decided I would make a patty out of this chicken and see what I got, well this made all the difference in the WORLD in the taste of my chicken patties! This is the only ground chicken I will use. They also have an Italian Ground Chicken that I tried but I always go back to just the regular "All Natural" Ground Chicken.
The other tool I use when making the "Grilled" Chicken Patty is of course A GRILL! But I am a single girl and not real fond of firing up a grill every time I want a simple chicken patty. This handy indoor grill has always worked out best for me, but I am sure any indoor grill will work out just fine, but grilling is the key to these little jewels. I tried baking and frying blah blah...but always went back to grilling :-)
Preheat an outdoor/indoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil grate (if needed)
Lightly spray a saute pan with cooking or oil spray over medium heat. Saute the onion with the garlic first, then the bell pepper, then the mushrooms, and carrots, all to desired tenderness. Set aside and allow all vegetables to cool completely.
In a large bowl, combine the chicken and vegetables. Add the egg, bread crumbs and seasonings to taste.
Mix all together well and form into 6-9 patties, depending on how thick you would like your patties.
Grill over medium heat for 5 to 6 minutes per side, or to desired doneness. ENJOY!
