  • 1lb ground chicken
  • 1/2 yellow onion, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 jalapeño, seeds removed and diced
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • Optional Toppings: Avocado, guacamole, tomatoes, salsa, red onion


  1. In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and use your hands to ensure the ingredients are well combined.
  2. Separate the chicken mixture into 4 and form into patties using your hands. (This recipe makes 4 large patties or 6 medium sized patties.)
  3. Season the burgers with a little extra pinch of salt and pepper on both sides before adding them to the grill.
  4. Heat a grill or grill pan to a medium heat, and cook patties for 5-7 minutes per side until cooked through to an internal temperature of 165ºF.
  5. Dress burgers with toppings of your choice to serve. I opted for guacamole, tomato, and leaf lettuce.
  6. Enjoy!
