Happy long weekend, yo. I know it is coming to an end but don't you want to go out with a bang? These will do it. A huge bang, a flavorful punch in in the mouth if you will. With just a few ingredients you can whip up a batch of these bad boys an impress even the biggest chicken burger skeptics.
Watch out Trader Joe's we might be putting you out of business. Well, hopefully not, we still love you. Xoxo.

Form into patties
Umm yeah, flavor town. I was really surprised how juicy these stayed they really were fantastic. A little mayo on the bun is all they needed although crisp lettuce would be a fantastic addition as well. We added them to our grilling rotation.
Chili Lime Chicken Burgers
Makes 4 burgers
1 lb ground chicken
2 green onions, diced
1/2 of a red pepper, diced small
1 tablespoon cilantro, minced
1/2 teaspoon season all salt
A few grinds of black pepper
Juice of 1/2 a lime
Pepper Jack cheese
Buns for serving
Mayo (we used light Miracle Whip) for serving
In a medium bowl, combine the chicken, onion, red pepper, cilantro, season all salt, pepper and lime juice. Form into 4 patties and spray each side with cooking spray so they don't stick.
Preheat the grill to about 500 degrees. Place the burgers on the hottest part of the grill. Grill for 3 minutes. Turn the grill down to medium high heat and flip the burgers to a cooler part of the grill. Grill for an additional 5 minutes. In the last minute of grilling, add the cheese to melt. Before taking off the grill be sure to check the internal temperature or that they are no longer pink in the middle.
Serve on buns with Mayo/Miracle Whip. Enjoy!
