Chicken Tequila Burgers

Oh wow, these are amazing! I found this recipe on Annie's Eats, and I flagged it to possibly try this summer. When figuring out our menu for this week, I thought this would be festive for Cinco de Mayo so I added the ingredients to the shopping list. The only difference I made was I used ground chicken instead of grinding my own like Annie did. Oh, and we grilled them instead of broiling. Do yourself a favor and make these! They were so easy and so delicious.


1 pound Ground Chicken
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
1 Jalapeno Pepper, seeded and diced
3-4 tablespoons Cilantro
Zest of 1/2 a Lime
1 ounce Tequila
Dash of Soy Sauce
Salt & Pepper to taste
1/2 cup Panko Bread Crumbs
In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients until mixed and form the mixture into 4 patties. Line a grill with tin foil sprayed with non-stick spray. Place the burgers on the grill and cook until done. Serve on a bun with sauteed onion and pepper (which we also cooked on the grill).
