Don't want beef? Fair enough, here's a chicken burger!
1 pound ground chicken breast
1/4 cup finely grated sharp cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup BBQ sauce – use homemade or your favorite!
4 whole wheat buns
1 onion, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
BBQ sauce for topping
gouda cheese for topping
In a large bowl, combine chicken, BBQ sauce, paprika, onion and garlic powder, salt, pepper and cheddar cheese. Mix until just combined, then form 4 patties. Preheat the grill or a skillet and cook the burgers until fully cooked through.
While burgers are cooking, heat a skillet on medium heat and add olive oil. Add sliced onions with a pinch of salt and saute until caramelized, about 10 minutes.
When burgers are ready, place on a toasted bun & top with gouda (or more cheddar), onions, BBQ sauce and fresh romaine.
