Basil Garlic Chicken Burger


I don't know about you, but I crave a burger on about a weekly basis.  Now, if I ate a beef burger on a weekly basis I would have to get my big butt to the gym a whole lot more than I currently make it there.  So instead of letting the beef burger get the best of me, I like to substitute with healthy ground chicken.  A weekly chicken burger has curbed my burger cravings, kept my waist line at a reasonable circumference and (bonus) fulfilled the toddler-will-eat entree requirement for one night a week.  I like to add basil, garlic and Worcestershire sauce to my chicken patties to give them a little zip.  Enjoy!


  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup chopped basil
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped yellow onion
  • 1 tsp Worshestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

In a medium sized bowl, combine all of the ingredients except the olive oil.  Press the raw burger into 4 patties for large burgers and 8 patties for small burgers.  In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat.  Cook the patties in the skillet for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through.
