Chicken Vegetable Burger w/ Low Carb Bun
Chicken Vegetable Burger w/ Low Carb Bun AZ

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground chicken, preferably half dark and half white meat
  • 3/4 cup coarsely grated zucchini, excess liquid squeezed out
  • 2 tablespoons grated (yellow)  onion, drained of liquid
  • 2 tablespoons no sugar added ketchup (I use Primal Kitchen or Walden Farms from Sprouts)
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley (avoid if you have kidney stones!)
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced scallion, white and light green parts only
  • 1 tsp sea salt or kosher salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil (or organic canola oil), plus extra for coating hands
  • 4 low carb hamburger buns (Thinslimfoods.com which are low carb buns)

Toppings of your choice: sliced tomato, sliced avocado, sliced red onion, pickles, mustard, lettuce, etc

  1. Place the chicken in a large bowl. Add the zucchini, onion, ketchup, garlic, basil, parsley, scallion, 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper and mix well.
  2. Lightly coat your hands with oil and form the chicken mixture into 4 patties (they will be quite moist). Place on a platter or rimmed baking sheet and refrigerate for 15 minutes to firm up.
  3. In a nonstick griddle or large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, heat the vegetable oil. Arrange the patties in the pan and cook until browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Flip the burgers and cook for an additional 4 to 5 minutes, until cooked through.
  4. Place the burgers on the buns and serve with your favorite toppings.
