Big fatty burgers coming at you guys today. I have to say I didn’t MEAN to make them so big. Truly, this recipe is supposed to make 8 good sized ground chicken burgers, but I KIND OF went a little overboard and made my burger a bit larger than the rest and, as you can see, wind up with a biggun.

  • 2 pounds ground chicken
  • 2 1/2 cups spinach chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup manchego shredded
  • 2 jalapeno peppers diced
  • 2 ounces beer
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • 1 teaspoon dried garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs if desired

  • Toasted buns
  • Whatever toppings you desire – I used a bit of extra cheese roasted jalapeno peppers, fresh sliced tomatoes and hot sauce

  1. Add the chicken, spinach, manchego cheese, jalapeno peppers and beer to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Heat a small pan to medium heat and add the rosemary, thyme and peppercorns. Dry heat them for about a minute, until they begin to become fragrant. Cool slightly then grind in a mortar and pestle.
  3. Add to the mixing bowl with the remaining ingredients.
  4. Hand mix the ingredients until they are roughly combined. Do not over process, or the burgers can become mealy.
  5. Form the mixture into 8 equal sized patties, about 4-5 ounces each. If the patties feel too loose, add a bit of breadcrumbs to each and incorporate to tighten them up.
  6. Heat a grill pan or grill to medium heat and lightly oil. Grill each burger patty 4-5 minutes per side, or until the chicken is cooked through completely.
  7. Top with extra cheese, if desired, and allow to melt.
  8. Serve over buns with your additional toppings!
