In honour of Hamburger Day…here is our favourite chicken burger recipe as first posted on January 6, 2007.  This recipe has been modified since then.

We’ve had fun with this one and we all enjoy it…in fact my 6yr old dips hers into additional pesto (yikes)!

Chicken Pesto Burgers
1 lb – ground chicken
1/2 cup – dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup – green onions, chopped
1 tbsp – fresh parsley, chopped
1-2 tbsp – grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp – dry mustard
1 – egg, beaten
1/2 tsp – salt
1/4 tsp – pepper
1 heaping tbsp pesto (home made or bought)
Hamburger Buns

In large bowl, mix together chicken, bread crumbs, onions, parsley, parmesan cheese, mustard, egg, salt, pepper and pesto. Form into patties. (we are able to make 6 patties)

In non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium heat or heat BBQ grill to medium-high heat. Grill your burgers for 4-5 minutes per side or until golden brown and no longer pink inside.

We serve these with mozzarella or gouda cheese melted on top, sautéed mushrooms and additional pesto on the bun. Add whatever additional fixins you enjoy (onions, lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, etc.).

Salad, Fries or Pasta goes well with any hamburger!
