Healthy Chicken Burgers





My son has been a fan of chicken burgers for a while now and homemade ones are always much better than elsewhere. I put a lot of really healthy alternatives in these mini burgers for your little ones. This is one of my son’s favorites and he’s always quick to gobble them down. I cut out bread into a cute shape because as you know it’s all about the presentation when it comes to kids. As soon as my son saw this he was excited and wanted to eat it. 

To Freeze I bake, wrap individually in foil packets then place 3 in a freezer bag. When needed I simple pop the foil packed into the oven at 350F for about 15 minutes. 

1 pound ground chicken
1 small red onion, chopped
1 apple, grated
1 carrot, chopped
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 garlic clove
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 tablespoons olive oil

1.      In a small 9-inch skillet on medium heat add red onion, apple, carrot, thyme and garlic. Cook until tender about 4 minutes.

2.      In a food processor add onion mixture and pulse. In a medium sized bowl add chicken and onion mixture. Mix well. Shape into small patties.

3.      Pre-heat oven to 350F. On a baking sheet and non-stick baking mat brush remaining olive oil. Place the burgers on baking sheet and bake until golden for 10 minutes on each side until thoroughly cooked.

Yields: 10 patties

    Well these look yummy and inviting, my son loves heart shaped sandwiches. :) Are those the local grapes that are in season, they love them, tart with no seeds. yumm! Does he no like any condiments? No mayo, come on Talal I thought you were Saudi, the place were they give you more mayo than ketchup for your fries. :P

    I am not sure where the grapes are from but dh always buys organic. Sometimes a lot of organic comes from Al Qassim though. He will not eat any condiments or anything ugh hes so picky.

    I absolutely love cooking with ground chicken. I don't want to eat ground beef all of the time and I much prefer the taste and texture of ground chicken compared to ground turkey. We make chicken burgers as well. For my kids, I do plain with fontina cheese. For the adults, we put sautéed mushrooms onions and fontina cheese. YUM!!!!
