apple-chicken burgers

 i threw some ground chicken in my grocery basket this week. there’s more to life than ground turkey.

i love chicken/apple sausage for breakfast, so that combo would make a darn good burger.  while training for my comp, if my meal plan called for apples that week, i would go get the BIGGEST ones i could find, lol.  i have really grown to love red delicious apples- eat one every day now.

aminos!  low sodium soy sauce alternative i use to marinate my proteins in.

i added the aminos along with my chopped apple, herbs, and seasonings into a mixing bowl with the chicken.

one more time close up.  no reason.

mix it. real good.

then grill’em up.  you can cook them in a flat iron pan too, or even bake them in the oven. i just have a thing for grill marks, that grilled taste, and it’s the quickest method.

apple-chicken burgers

serving size: 2 oz patty

the stuff:

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 egg white
  • half a large apple (approx. 1 cup, diced)
  • handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 medium shallot, diced
  • 1 tbsp smokehouse maple or any seasoning of your choice
  • 3 tsp Bragg’s liquid aminos
  • fresh cracked black pepper
  • 2 tsp liquid smoke (hickory or mesquite, you choose)

do this:

mix and grill. 4 min on each side should be perfect. watch them though.

cover the meat and let it rest for a few minutes afterwards.

 i made a sandwich and used Prophet Ezekiel’s sprouted grain sesame bread.  sprayed a little ‘i can’t believe it’s not butter’ on the slices first, and toasted them.

i like how the sesame seeds get toasted too- gives your sammich so much texture and crunch when you bite into it.

the chicken is lean, but the apple helps keep the patty moist.

add your toppings.  that’s almond cheese- yep. this is a GREAT brand i found through an IG buddy, @spoonfulofit.  it’s Lissanti and i found it at Whole Foods.  it melts and tastes just like regular dairy cheese, she was right!

topped it with plenty of spicy mustard, and there’s some fig butter hiding under the tomatoes 😉

i shoulda let the cheese melt on the patties, what was i thinking? next time.

ok enough sammich pics, go make one.

Prophet’s Ezekiel also makes great whole wheat pita pockets.  the stats are better than Trader Joe’s by far.  only 100 cals compared to TJ’s 160 (same size pita) and has a whopping 7 grams of protein!

have a happy, lean & clean friday in advance,

le
