This chicken burger is delicious. Why shouldn't it be? Because this recipe is from the famous, Giada De Laurentiis, taken from www.foodnetwork.com. Rosemary, garlic and mayonnaise work out great together, both in the burger as well as on the buns. The addition of this mixture in the burger makes it really moist, tender and absolutely delicious! Even though the recipes calls for the burger to be grilled, I fry it in very little oil in a non-stick pan. Drain on paper towel, then toast the burger buns a minute or two in the pan, and it's ready to be enjoyed.
This is so simple and so easy that it takes only minutes to prepare, and really delicious! My kids are already asking me to make this again!
This is the first Giada's recipe that I tried. Check out the great reviews from foodnetwork on this burger recipe. Now I'm really looking forward to her other recipes. No idea what to prepare for your weekend lunch? Try this!
Chicken Burgers with Garlic-Rosemary Mayonnaise
(source from : www.foodnetwork.com courtesy Giada De Laurentiis)
Prep. Time : 20 min
Cook Time : 15 min
Serves : 4 servings (I got 5 good-sized burgers)
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1 clove garlic, minced
1 pound ground chicken
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 sandwich rolls or burger buns
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup arugula, divided
For the mayonnaise: In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise, garlic and rosemary. Set aside.
For the burgers : Preheat a gas or charcoal grill or place a grill pan over medium-high heat. In a large bowl, add the ground chicken, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and 1/2 of the mayonnaise mixture. Using clean hands, gently combine the ingredients and form the chicken mixture into 4 patties. Place the burgers on the grill and cook for about 7 minutes on each side. Transfer to paper towels and let rest for a few minutes.
Brush the cut side of each roll with the olive oil and 1 teaspoon of the mayonnaise mixture. Grill for 1 to 2 minutes until slightly golden.
To assemble the burgers : Spread a dollop of the remaining mayonnaise mixture on the tops and bottoms of the toasted buns. Place the chicken burgers on the bottom halves of the buns. Top each with 1/4 cup of arugula and finish with the top half of the buns.
