Texas Chicken Burgers

These were so easy and quick to make, and taste amazing! Next time we’re making them on the grill, which will probably be even better!


  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 small zucchini, shredded
  • 1 medium carrot, shredded
  • 1 tsp chili power
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/8 tsp ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • whole wheat hamburger buns
  • lettuce & tomato (optional topping for burgers)
You’ll need a medium batter bowl, a piece of wax paper or a plastic plate, and a large skillet (sprayed with non-stick cooking spray).
In medium bowl combine chicken, green onions, zucchini, carrot, and spices and blend until mixed.  I found mixing with my hands to be the best method.
On the wax paper or plate, shape mixture into 4 patties, pressing firmly so they won’t fall apart.
Heat your prepared skillet over medium hight heat for a few minutes, then place patties in hot skillet, cover and cook for 5 minutes, then flip and cooke 5 minutes more.  Keep flipping until cooked through (either use a meat thermometer to make sure it’s at least 165 degrees F, or cut into a patty to make sure it’s not pink inside).

Serve with lettuce & tomato and or your choice of condiments…
