Chicken & Spinach Burger

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Tasty Tuesday!!!!

This recipe is inspired by some frozen patties I saw in the grocery store.  Since the grocery store version had so many preservatives and additives I decided……why not make my own. That way I can put the things I like, want and need into it without any unnecessary additives.

So let’s dive in….

Ingredients:

5-6 Organic boneless skinless chicken thighs (you can certainly use breast or mix breast and thighs…..I prefer thigh because of it’s, moistness and ability to take on deeper flavors quickly).
2 Cups of fresh organic spinach
1/2 Cup organic diced onion
1/2 Cup organic diced pepper (red, yellow & green)…..or whatever you have on hand

Dried Seasonings/Herbs:
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp no-salt seasoning blend (21 Salutes, Mrs. Dash or my preference Costco’s organic no- salt seasoning)
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cardamom
1/4 tsp coriander
1/8 tsp thyme
1/8 tsp sage
1 Tbsp amino acid (or low sodium soy sauce)

*In my cooking I like to use lot’s of different herbs/spices…..I love flavorful food and the enjoyment of friends saying what’s in this and trying to guess…..they usually can guess/taste & distinguish a few…lol.  If you don’t have the herbs/spices on hand then just go with what you have.  If I am cooking something and I can make do without it….I go without those ingredients and cook on anyway…..there’s alway’s next time.

Method:

1.  Place all ingredients in a ( large 6-8 Cup) food processor and pulse for 1-2 minutes.

* I now prefer making my own ground meat. If I forget to take out something for dinner it takes a lot less time to defrost boneless skinless chicken in cool water and vinegar. Over pre-packaged ground meat. This also allows me to clean the meat properly.

2.  Now using and ice cream scoop you can make even size patties. You can opt to cook them as you desire (I put mine on the grill this time) or freeze the patties (up to 2 months) for future cooking.

That’s all there is to it……if you have any questions please feel free to email me or leave a comment below.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, I greatly appreciate it.

Until Next Time,
