Barbecue Chicken Burgers
Last night I was looking for something fun and quick to make for dinner that I could also feed to my milk-free munchkin. I was craving burgers (and he can’t eat beef), so I decided to whip up bbq chicken burgers. Not only were they SO easy AND healthy, but we all actually loved them! I didn’t have time to take a photo, but I promise I’ll try to get one next time around.
1 pound ground chicken (you could also use turkey)
1/4 cup of your favorite bbq sauce (plus more for garnish)
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 onion, sliced (optional for garnish)
milk free sandwich thins, or any other favorite milk free bun you prefer
about 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil
Heat a large non-stick or cast iron skillet over medium heat. While the pan is heating, mix the chicken with bbq sauce, onion powder, and garlic powder and form into patties (I made my munchkin’s patty super thin so he would be able to bite into it easily). Patties will be super sticky, but don’t worry! Add the oil to the pan and spread evenly throughout. Place two patties in the pan at a time, and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side, depending on their thickness. While the patties are cooking, you can caramelize the onions to top your burgers (I left this off my little man’s burger, but mom and dad gobbled them up).
When your burgers are done, place on your bun, and garnish away! We topped ours with a squirt of bbq sauce, and caramalized onions. You can also melt on a slice of dairy free cheese if you like, or for anyone wanting real cheese , swiss works great.
That’s it! So simple, yet so good! Do you have a similar dairy free burger recipe? Please share!
