Lemon Cilantro Chicken Burger

This time of year, I love to cook on the grill.  It keeps the heat out of the house and there’s fewer pots to clean!

To me, nothing says summer like a good burger grilled to perfection.

But since I’m trying to watch how many calories I eat, I usually opt for ground chicken instead of ground beef.

The problem with ground chicken is that it doesn’t have a lot of flavor, so it needs some help to make it into a good burger.

That’s where this Lemon Cilantro Chicken Burger recipe comes in handy…the extra spices definitely make for one tasty burger!

Servings 4 burgers


  • 1 pound ground chicken or turkey
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro or 1 Tablespoon of dried cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper


  • Pre-heat the grill.  Using a non-stick grill spray* on the grates will help prevent the burgers from sticking.
  • Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl.  I usually start by mixing with a large spoon, and then use my hands to finish the job...it's easier to get everything well mixed that way.
  • Form patties out of the meat.  You should be able to make at least 4 patties (and I have made as many as 6 patties if I was making small ones).
  • Grill the patties over medium high heat for about 6 minutes per side, or until they are no longer pink inside.  Do not press the burgers down with a spatula...that will squeeze the juice out of them and make them dry.
