There is an amazing amount of flavor packed into the burger - so much so that John did not ONCE complain about having to eat chicken burgers rather than beef. Well, to be more accurate - what he thinks is beef but is really turkey. Please let's just keep that our little secret. What he doesn't know won't hurt him in this instance right?
Anyway, back to the burger, packed with flavor, so incredibly delicious, the perfect way to celebrate your summer. Incidentally, these would also be perfect the first few weeks of fall when you actually want to turn on your oven to make these rolls AND you can totally justify having burgers because well, football season will be upon us. But until then, we'll celebrate the bounty of summer, and try and hold on to these last few weeks. I don't know about all of you but it has literally FLOWN.
Chicken Jalapeno Popper Burgers
1 pound ground chicken
2 jalapenos, diced
1 scallion, sliced thinly
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon black pepper
6 ounces of cheddar cheese, grated and divided
4 Cheddar-Jalapeno Rolls (or hamburger buns)
Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. In a large bowl, combine chicken, jalapenos, scallion, salt, black pepper, and 2 ounces of cheddar cheese. Form into 4 burgers. Grill for about 4-5 minutes per side, until fully cooked through. In the last 2 minutes, top each burger with the remaining cheddar cheese and let it melt over the burger. Remove the burgers from the grill and immediately serve them on cheddar-jalapeno rolls.
Until the next time my oven is on...
