Chicken cheeseburgers with green garlic dressing

Chicken cheeseburgers with green garlic dressing

This isn't your regular chicken cheeseburger — it's got a clever twist! Instead of adding the cheese on top, we mixed it in with the meat making the burgers wonderfully juicy on the inside and nice 'n' crispy on the outside. This mouthwatering, higher-satiety meal will have you wondering why we ever needed buns in the first place. Napkins required!

Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Finely chop the scallion and add it to a large bowl with the ground chicken, shredded cheddar cheese, paprika powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well with clean hands. Shape into two patties per serving. The thinner they are, the faster they will cook.
  2. Heat a large non-stick frying pan with oil over medium-high heat. When hot, fry the burgers for a couple of minutes on each side until cooked through. The cheese will make a nice crispy crust.
  3. Combine the mayonnaise, garlic powder, basil, and black pepper in a small bowl.
  4. Place a patty on a lettuce leaf, add a dollop of dressing, thinly sliced tomato, pickles, and top with another patty to make your chicken cheeseburger. Enjoy!
