Chicken Fajita Burgers

Ingredients
Makes 4 burgers


For the burgers:

  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • Dash of paprika
  • Dash of crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice

For the topping:

  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced thin
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced thin
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced thin
  • Guacamole
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 4 sandwich buns

In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, egg, bread crumbs, garlic powder, seasoned salt, cumin, chili powder, paprika, red pepper flakes and lime juice. Use your hands to combine. Pat into 4 equal sized patties.


Place the chicken patties on a hot grill over medium heat and cook for 5 minutes. Flip and continue cooking for 5 minutes. Top with the cheese, turn off the grill, and close the lid to let the cheese melt. Remove to a plate.


While the burgers are cooking, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add butter and allow to melt. Add the sliced peppers and onion to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until peppers and onions are tender, about 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, place the buns in a toaster and toast until light brown.


Top the buns with guacamole, burgers, and vegetables to serve.
