Preparation for Cilantro Lime Chicken Burgers

  1. Place the ground chicken in a large basin designed for mixing. The yellow onion should next be shredded using a box grater and placed on top of the chicken.
  2. Include chopped cilantro, lime juice, lime zest, garlic powder, dried red chili flakes, as well as salt and pepper in the recipe.
  3. Hand-mix everything gently, then shape into 5 patties of similar size.
  4. Stovetop: Warm up two tablespoons of olive oil in a pan that doesn’t stick on medium heat. When the pan is hot, place the patties in it and cook them for six to seven minutes on the first side. Flip.
  5. Cook for a further 6–7 minutes on the other side. Or until the temperature reached 165 degrees Fahrenheit on the inside.
  6. When grilling, start by cleaning the grill and then heating it to medium-high, between 375 and 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  7. Be careful to lubricate your grill by either spraying it with oil or soaking paper towels in oil and spreading the mixture over the grill.
  8. Place the chicken patties on the hot grill, cover it, and cook for about 5 minutes, or until grill marks form. Turn the burgers over carefully and continue cooking them for another 5 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
  9. Put your burgers together on a toasted bun that has been buttered, and then top them with guacamole, tomato, lettuce, red onion, or any other toppings you choose.
