Who knew a burger could taste so light and bright? Lime zest and juice as well as fresh cilantro and red bell pepper brighten this one beautifully. Don’t leave off the pickle; that little bit of tang and crunch makes a big difference.

Excellent burger! As with ALL recipes I try, the first go is strictly 'by the recipe.' This was no exception and was found to be very flavorful with the Lime and Cilantro the most pronounced flavors. The onion and bell pepper were noticeably present and played well. As some have commented, the burgers are not appetizing to the eye bc they do not brown up and I was sure to brush with adequate oil. A left over burger the next day was heated in my carbon steel skillet and the char was indeed an addition. Topped with hot sauce and chill lettuce - noticeably improved.
These burgers are excellent and have a tremendous amount of room for customizing. Btw, I ground the chicken in my mixer attachment.
Give them a go! You'll be very pleased. Thank you FC!!
This was pretty good. I think for most it would be excellent. We just have a bunch of people who don’t like green stuff in their food and so they wouldn’t eat the burgers. I may make this again for adults who like to eat healthy, but not for my kids.
Made according to recipe. But cooked on range griddle. Browned nicely and tasted delicious!!!! Kids loved it too. Will put in menu rotation!
