As we embarked on the end of school this year I started switching gears and wrapping my head around all the exciting foods we would be eating this summer. Big chucks of watermelon, corn on the cob, fruit crisps, Heirloom Tomato Salad and of course, burgers! Last week I shared Salmon Burgers with Quick Pickled Cukes and this week I’m back with these BBQ Chicken Burgers for Rewind Wednesday. You’ll never miss the beef with either of these burger recipes because they’re so darn easy and satisfying. You can use light or dark ground chicken in them (the darker meat giving you more fat and flavor), if you’re looking to sink your teeth into a burger reminiscent of what you would get at a fast food joint or right off your barbecue. What gives them extra zip and zing, though, is your favorite barbecue sauce you choose to add to them. No matter if you like them a bit more sweet, vinegary or spicy there are an enormous amount of sauces at the grocery store to satisfy your craving or you could even make your own. My only advice is to avoid the ones where it lists corn syrup as one of the first two or three ingredients as they will be a bit too syrupy, sticky sweet.
When you’re planning a big get together and want a simple recipe to satisfy your crowd’s cravings give these Barbecue Chicken Burgers a whirl. You’ll be glad you did!
To me, summertime means burger time! I like to switch it up and get away from the usual beef burgers and instead try something different like these BBQ Chicken Burgers. If you have visions of a meal time mess, fear not. Since you add your favorite BBQ sauce into the mixture in this recipe, the burgers take on all the tangy, sweet and spicy flavor without it dripping all over you and your kids' fingers and clothes while you eat.
The next time you're having a party or family gathering whip up a batch of these burgers and look around at all the happy (and clean) faces!
