Shopping List
  • 1 pound ground chicken breast (or lean ground turkey)
  • 1 cup bell pepper, diced
  • 33333333/100000000 cup cheese of choice (shredded mozzarella, shredded cheddar, feta, etc)
  • 1/4 red onion
  • 1/4 cup fresh herbs of choice (cilantro, parsley, and/or basil)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons spices of choice (cumin, all purpose, basil, etc)
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil, for frying
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Grate the onion using a box grater (the side normally used for cheese) in a large bowl. Collect all of the grated onion and juices. Finely chop any leftover onion that you can't grate and add it to the bowl.
  2. Step 2: Add all of the remaining burger ingredients, except the cooking oil, to the bowl. Mix everything together until uniform.
  3. Step 3: Wet your hands with water and shape the meat mixture into burger patties. The water helps keep the meat from sticking to your hands.
  4. Step 4: Heat the oil in a wide skillet over medium-hight heat. Once hot, add the burgers, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Cook the burgers until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. After the 6 minutes, add 1/4 cup of water to the hot pan and then cover it with a lid. The steam will help cook the burgers all the way through. Keep steaming the burgers for 2 to 3 minutes. Then, remove the lid and check the burgers for doneness. They may need an extra 1 to 2 minutes if they are especially tall.
  5. Serve: Enjoy these burgers over salads, in a low-carb bun, with fries, or just as a quick protein-filled snack.

Recipe Notes

Every 1 cup of bell pepper is equal to about 1 small bell pepper.

Some commercially-produced non-dairy cheese options are loaded with additives and questionable ingredients. Always read the labels. You can also substitute the cheese here entirely and instead use 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast or use Instant Vegan Parmesan in place of the nut-based cheese.
