HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN CHEESE BURGER
In a large bowl, combine ground chicken, bread crumbs, egg, grated parmesan cheese, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. Mix until just combined, being careful not to overmix.
Divide mixture into four equal portions and form into patties.
Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Add patties and cook for 5-6 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
HOW TO MAKE THE GRILLED MUSHROOMS AND ONIONS
Add butter and oil into a separate pan. Add sliced onions and mushrooms and cook until softened and caramelized, about 10-15 minutes. Season with garlic powder for more flavors.
BUILD THE BURGER
When the burgers are almost finished cooking, add a slice of cheddar cheese to each patty and allow it to melt slightly.
Assemble burgers by placing a patty on each bun with mayonnaise, followed by a generous helping of grilled onions and mushrooms. I added dried parsley to brighten up the toppings.
Devour and enjoy!
DIET TRENDSETTERS SUBSTITUTIONS
VEGAN – Use a meatless patty like Impossible Chicken Patty or Gardein Chick’n Filets. I’ve tried both brands but they’re high in sodium. To swap out the cheese, use plantbased cheese. The smoked gouda cheese from Follow You Heart is my favorite and will pair well with the grilled toppings.
LOW CARB/KETO – Swap out the buns for keto buns or use lettuce and wrap it up around the burger.
OTHER PROTEIN – You can use lean ground beef or if using lean ground turkey, season it well.
