Jamaican Jerk Chicken Burger

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground white meat chicken
  • 1/2 cup cooked Quinoa
  • 1/4 cup Jamaican jerk marinade
  • 3/4 teaspoon coarse grained salt
  • Cracked black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoon mayo

Instructions

  • If you don’t have a meat grinder- place chicken in the food processor and pulse until it is completely minced.
  • Place chicken in a mixing bowl, add quinoa, jerk marinade, egg, mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
  • The mixture will be wet which means it will be a bit sticky forming it into patties, that is a good thing it means moisture. Divide chicken meat into 4 sections (you decide which portion size is best for you) and using your hands, shape into patties. Set each patty on a baking sheet. Heat olive oil on a grill pan or a large skillet. Cook patties until golden and cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Serve immediately.
