BBQ Chicken Burgers
With the days getting longer, sunnier, and brighter, burgers are coming back into the regular weekend rotation and very very appreciated by my crew of teens & young adults! Spring & Summer are right around the corner and I’m SO EXCITED to get grilling outside more often!
BBQ Chicken Burgers are juicy and ultra flavorful, especially with this homemade BBQ sauce! Do yourself a huge favor and definitely make this BBQ sauce to go with your burgers!
Don’t get me wrong here – I love my carbs and enjoy a healthy amount of them. But full transparency- I usually enjoy my burgers best wrapped in crisp lettuce with all the trimmings! Sometimes a big ole’ bun is just too much and (especially) when your burger is juicy and ultra flavorful, just let it be the star of this show (my stomach usually feels better later on as well!).
I *will* suggest saving your carbohydrate for a big serving of our Baked Beans or Sweet Potato Fries alongside this burger! Now we’re talking!!!
And for those who need to keep their carbohydrates lower, serve these burgers with a side of our Coleslaw!
Clean, Delicious Condiments and Sides:
- Best Homemade BBQ Sauce,
- Homemade Mayonnaise,
- Homemade Ketchup
- Pickled Red Onion
- Crockpot Baked Beans
- Baked Potato Wedges
- Garlic Herb Sweet Potato Fries
- Healthier Coleslaw
- 1-1/2 lbs ground chicken
- 2 tsps sea salt
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 3 tsps olive oil or avocado oil
- homemade BBQ sauce
- fresh lettuce leaves
- tomato, sliced
- red onion, sliced
In a large bowl, combine ground chicken, olive oil, garlic powder, sea salt, and black pepper.
Shape your mixture into 4 patties, then allow your burgers to rest for 5-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat your BBQ grill or indoor grill pan to medium-high. Carefully brush the grill or grill pan with avocado oil.
Grill your burgers for about 5 minutes on each side or until they are nicely browned and no longer pink in the center.
Place each patty (burger) on a piece of lettuce with sliced tomato, pickles, and onion, top with a Tablespoon of your BBQ sauce, and another lettuce leaf or two.
Wrap up the lettuce around the burger and serve with French fries or potato wedges.
