Grilled Chicken Apple Cheddar Burgers

April 25, 2015



One of the most popular posts on ShreddedSprout is the Chipolte Apple Turkey Burger. Well, move over… have some serious competition!! This chicken burger with apples, cheddar cheese, red onion, bacon and Dijon has just won over my love of the “white burger.” Start with lean ground chicken breast and end with toppings you love.  Serve with homemade Sweet potato chips!

Grilled Chicken Burgers

Makes 6

1.5 lbs ground chicken (have your butcher grind up fresh chicken breasts)

1 small granny smith apple, diced small

5 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated

2 strips bacon, partially cooked and chopped (optional)

1/2 red onion, diced small

Dollop of Dijon mustard

Salt and pepper

Toppings: Avocado, tomato

Mix the above together with your hands and form into 6 burgers. Grill over medium heat for 5-8 minutes per side, until cooked through (center of patties reach 165 degrees). Serve on whole wheat bun and any extras you like. We enjoyed an avocado, tomatoes and a bit of avocado garlic aoili.
