About this Recipe

These flavourful chicken burgers are a healthy alternative to traditional beef burgers.


2 lbs Maple Leaf Prime Naturally® Extra Lean Ground Chicken
1/3 cup breadcrumbs
2 cloves garlic, grated or minced
1 small onion, grated
1 jalapeno, finely chopped, seeds and membrane removed
3/4 tsp roasted cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tsp lime juice
2 tsp grapeseed oil


Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
Place meat in a large mixing bowl.
Add breadcrumbs, garlic, onion, jalapeno, cumin, coriander, salt, pepper, lime juice, oil.
Mix ingredients together with hands to combine.
Divide mixture into 6 balls, flatten into patties.
Spray grill with cooking spray or grease with oil on a cloth.
Place 2 patties on grill. Cook 3-4 minutes* or until well done then set aside. Repeat with the remaining burger patties.
Allow burgers to rest 3-5 minutes before topping with desired garnish.


*IMPORTANT: I cooked these burgers on a George Foreman Grill, which has heat on the top and bottom. You may need to increase cooking time to 5-6 minutes if using a traditional BBQ grill, making sure to flip the burgers halfway through the cooking time.
