Asian Inspired Chicken Burgers
Asian Inspired Chicken Burgers (Serves 4)
1 pound ground chicken
3 Tbsp teriyaki sauce
1 Tbsp ginger (powdered/grated - I used Penzey Spices brand)
2 tsp minced garlic
4 slices of pineapple, four 1/2-inch-thick rings
4 Alexia Foods Onion Rings (in your freezer section) (Left over rings can be served on the side)
4 whole grain hamburger buns (lightly toasted)
1-2 TBSP olive oil to coat pan for pineapples
Cooking spray (about 4 sprays)
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix ground chicken, teriyaki sauce,garlic and cooking spray. Make 4 individual patties. Turn on broiler. In an oven safe dish, add olive oil to coat, then add pineapples. Keep pineapples in the oven for about 10-15 minutes, checking in five minute intervals. I flipped the pineapples over every time I checked on them. You want them to be golden & soft - not charred. While the pineapples are beginning to cook, place burgers in grill pan. Cook throughly. Follow the directions on the onion rings, which take about 10 minutes to bake.When burgers, pineapples and onion rings are done, add to lightly toasted buns. Enjoy!
PS- Can you tell I have a thing for pineapples?
