These are deliciously moist and seasoned chicken burgers over a bed of spinach, topped with a mango jalapeno topping. The base recipe is not spicy at all - but it can certainly be made spicy by adding some more jalapeno!
Ingredients
Chicken Burgers
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ of large red pepper, finely chopped
  • ¼ of a jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped [add more if you want them to be spicy]
  • ½ of a small onion (about 4 tbsp), finely chopped
  • 1 tsp minced garlic (2 cloves)
  • 1 lb Ground Chicken Breast
  • ½ cup fresh, coarsely ground bread crumbs (1-2 slices of normal loaf bread)
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup half and half
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ⅛ tsp chili powder
  • Ground black pepper, to taste
Mango Jalapeno Topping
  • 2 mangos, peeled and chopped into ½ inch pieces
  • ¼ of a small onion (about 2 tbsp), finely chopped
  • ½ jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped [add more if you want it to be spicy]
  • ¼ of a large red pepper, finely chopped
  • ⅛ tsp chili powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tbsp fresh lime juice
For plating
  • Fresh Spinach
Instructions
For the chicken burgers:
  1. In a small pan, heat the olive oil on medium-high heat. Sautee the red pepper, jalapeno pepper, garlic, and onion until tender, about 3 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the chicken breast, egg, half and half, and bread crumbs. Mix until combined. Add salt, chili powder, and black pepper, and stir to combine.
  3. When the sauteed vegetables have cooled, add to the chicken breast mix and mix well.
  4. Set to marinade for 15 minutes in the fridge. (This would be a good time to make the topping).
  5. When ready to cook, lightly grease a pan and raise heat to medium.
  6. Loosely shape a handful of chicken into a ball and drop onto the pan. I had patties of about ¾ inch thickness. Let patties cook, flipping every 2-3 minutes, for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
For the topping:
  1. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients until mixed well. Store in the fridge while coking the patties.
