Grilled Chicken Tequila Burgers

My husband and I enjoy grilled turkey burgers.  I have discovered that I actually prefer them over a hamburger!  I hadn’t thought of making chicken burgers until I came across this recipe at Annie’s Eats.  She has a great site with fabulous recipes – check it out!  This is the 2nd recipe I’ve tried from her site that has been wonderful!  Thanks Annie, for giving me my favorite new burger!!  I changed it slightly by adding the juice of a lime and put the chicken breasts through my meat grinder instead of using the food processor.  I love the taste produced by the grill, so I took these to the grill and I wasn’t disappointed!  Either way, you’re in for a treat with these burgers!  An added bonus is that they freeze well for a quick weeknight dinner. 

Grilled Chicken Tequila Burgers


2 cloves garlic, chopped
½-1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
1 lb ground chicken breast
3-4 tbsp. cilantro
Zest of ½ a lime
Juice of ½ a lime
1 oz. tequila
Dash of soy sauce
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
½ cup panko bread crumbs

For serving:

Burger buns









Preheat the grill.   Combine all ingredients with the ground chicken until well blended.  Form the mixture into 4-5 patties. Grill approximately 10 minutes per side.  Serve on buns with mayo, spinach, tomato or desired toppings.  Enjoy!!
