Notes

Don't press on your burgers or flip them more than once - this will release the flavor and moisture into the grill and result in dry burgers.

Ingredients

  • 1 package PERDUE Fresh Ground Chicken (1 lb.) or PERDUE Fresh Ground Turkey Breast (1 lb.)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 scallions, trimmed and minced
  • 1/4 Cup minced fresh parsley
  • 2 Tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 2 Teaspoons grated lime zest
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 Cup guacamole (optional)
  • Lettuce, tomato, onion slices (optional)

Directions

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

In a medium bowl, stir together chicken, scallions, parsley, cilantro, garlic, lime zest, salt and pepper. Form into 4 patties.

Grill 3 to 5 minutes per side until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest part registers 165°F. Toast buns during last 2 to 3 minutes.

Set a piece of lettuce, slice of tomato and slice of onion on each bun. Place a burger on each of the onion slices, top with some guacamole and serve.
