Tasty Chicken Burgers (Makes 4 or 5 burgers)

Here is a wonderful way to transform ground chicken into first class burgers. Chilling the chicken mixture before shaping makes it much easier to form attractive patties. Heart-healthy folks will appreciate your efforts.

1 pound ground chicken
2 cups fresh bread crumbs, divided
1/2 cup fat free milk
3 tablespoons grated sweet onion
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3/4 teaspoon salt
Black pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil

1. Place chicken in a mixing bowl. Using a rubber spatula, fold in 1/2 cup bread crumbs, milk, onion, cayenne, salt and pepper to taste. Mixture will be very wet. If you wish, chill mixture before shaping into patties.

2. Place the remaining 1 and 1/2 cups bread crumbs on a piece of waxed paper or dinner plate.

3. Shape mixture into 4 or 5 patties. (I like to use food handling gloves as the mixture will remain sticky.)

4. Coat each patty with bread crumbs.

5. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and when hot, fry patties until golden and cooked through, about 5 minutes per side.

6. Serve immediately with or without bus. Enjoy!

Note: To make fresh bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and put into a food processor with steel blade inserted. Pulse until bread crumbs are desired size.
