Tasty Tuesday: Wicked Good Chicken Burgers

Today’s recipe is courtesy of Wicked Good Spice Mixes.  I met these amazing ladies at the Brick Farmer’s Market.  I found them last year BUT I have been using the heck out of their products this year.  I hit them every Saturday to make sure I have enough of the Peach and Wild Berry Infused Balsamic Vinegars.  I was a total salad dressing girl until I started using these with their organic olive oil.  Now, I’m hooked.  So check out these recipe….
Ingredients:
2 lbs of Lean Ground Chicken Breast or Ground Turkey
1 small jalapeno peppers , seeds removed, diced
5 cloves of garlic, finely diced
2 medium onions diced
1 10oz package of frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed to remove moisture
1 tablespoon of Garlic Explosion ( More if you love garlic as much as I do!)
1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
2 tablespoons of olive oil
Directions:
  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil and saute garlic and onions until caramelized and soft.
  • In a large bowl, mix chicken breast, jalapeno peppers, salt and pepper,garlic and onion mixture and Achilles heel Blend and Garlic explosion blend and spinach
  • Form mixture into 8 large burgers or 12 smaller burgers.
  • Heat a griddle pan and cook burgers  for about 4 minutes and turn.  Burgers should be nicely browned and check to make sure they reach an internal temperature of 170 degrees.
Serve with roasted veggies or salad and ENJOY!

Want to know more about Wicked Good Spice Mix Co?  Here is what they have to say on their website:  The main reason we started this company was to show people how easy, healthy and fun it can be to make a delicious meal at home!  I always think the hardest thing about cooking is how much of this spice and how much of that spice you should add.

So go ahead and throw all of those spices you use infrequently and start using our spice blends! They are fresh and economical!  Our blends are perfectly formulated to use for just about everything you like to cook.  Recently we have added fruit infused balsamic vinegars and olive oils to our collection.
