Ridiculously Good Ground Chicken Patty- so full of flavor!

Green Chili Chicken Burger Recipe

Seriously these chicken burgers are so full of scrumptiously delicious flavor! We love ’em here at our house.

My local Sprouts store has chicken breasts on sale for $1.99/lb quite often. I just ask the meat clerk to grind the chicken for me and he does this at no extra cost.

I always double this recipe because they re-heat up really well for the next days meal or they freeze great for an even later date.

We love these chicken burgers with “Ramen Burger Buns” but usually just eat them with lettuce as the buns because lettuce is always available in the fridge and we really don’t need anything else. However I really do love a portobello mushroom as a bottom bun when I plan ahead. The taste adds to the burger and I like the extra shot of vitamin D mushrooms provide.

Mushroom buns

I can’t imagine actually using two mushroom buns. That’s way too much mushroom! Who besides Carly Simon and Mick Jagger has that big of a mouth anyway?

It just amazes me how much these portobello mushrooms resemble hamburger buns. Its like natures way of saying, “hey, use these as buns!”
