You don’t have to be a master chef to come up with your own tasty chicken burgers recipes. By using some of your favourite seasonings and ingredients, you can create a low-fat burger that will have you enjoying our short-lived Canadian BBQ season.
I like to experiment with different toppings and seasonings when I make my burgers, then when I find a favourite, I add it to my recipe repertoire. This weekend, I’m going to get creative by using seasonings like curry or tarragon, or maybe I’ll create a Hawaiian chicken burger using grilled slices of pineapple. The possibilities are endless!
Here’s my take on a Mediterranean flavoured burger which is not only delicious but reheats well so make plenty to have for leftovers the next day.
