Scrumptious alternative to ground beef. These delicious ground chicken burgers are the perfect quick and easy meal for 2 to 4 people. These burgers can be prepared in advance and put in the freezer (uncooked) for a quick dinner idea. Also these are very yummy with ground turkey as well. Serve with spicy mustard or ketchup. These burgers are great without the bread as well if you are controlling your carb intake.

  • Section mixture into 4 equal portions and form into flat, round patties.

  • Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat, spraying with cooking spray if needed. Place burgers in the hot skillet and cook until browned and no longer pink, about 5 minutes on each side. Serve on warmed buns.

Cook's Notes:

You can use fresh basil instead of dried, and wheat hamburger buns instead of white.

Cooking times may vary depending on thickness and size of burgers.

These were good! I liked the addition of Parmesan. Only thing I did differently was add a bit of bread crumbs, I wanted to grill them on the bbq and they seemed to hold together better for the grill. Read More

Our first words were, "It's interesting" and "It's flavorful". Won't make again but if you love basil, you'll like this. Read More

I really liked these! I do have to say, they are heavy on the basil, so if you're going to eat them on their own without the bun you might want to cut back on the basil because I felt it was too overpowering. But with a bun and all the other toppings (cheddar, lettuce, tomato), the flavors balanced each other out and it made for a great burger! I loved the addition of the Parmesan. Read More
