Serve on an Iceberg or Butter Lettuce 'Bun' with your favorite condiments. I love Creamy Sriracha Sauce.


  • 1 1/4 pounds ground chicken - I buy boneless breasts to chop in food processor
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (or 1/2 t regular salt)
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper


  • Combine the chicken, garlic, Worcestershire, Tabasco, parsley, egg, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
  • Mixture will be fairly wet, but portion into 5 burgers. I use a metal ice cream scoop and two pieces of waxed paper for nicely even portioned and flattened burgers.
  • Sear the burgers in a nonstick skillet in 2 teaspoons olive oil, over high heat for a nice crust, then lower heat and gently cook for 4 to 5 minutes per side, until just cooked through. No need to overcook.
  • Keep them juicy and remember to never smash a burger down with a spatula.
