Make these now.
1 lb ground chicken
1/4 cup BBQ sauce (homemade or your favorite brand)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon paprika
salt/pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup cheddar cheese (extra for the top if needed)
Caramelized red onion
In a large skillet over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil, sliced red onion and cook and a pinch of salt, stirring frequently until onions are caramelized. This should take about 10-15 minutes. Set aside until needed.
In a bowl, combine chicken, BBQ sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, cheese, and salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly and form into patties (I made four rather large patties, but feel free to make yours smaller). Refrigerate until ready to cook.
Heat a large skillet or grill to medium high heat and add olive oil. Cook burgers on each side for about 6 minutes. Once the internal temperature reacher 165 degrees, you can remove the burgers from the heat.
I used these sandwich slims from Trader Joe’s instead of a bun and layered my burger with spinach, cheddar cheese, caramelized red onions, BBQ sauce and cilantro.
These are sooo good! If you have ever eaten the BBQ Chicken pizza from California Pizza Kitchen, this tastes exactly like that!!
