The Best Chicken Burgers!

My family loves burgers. We are always cooking burgers around here. Because we love burgers so much, I am always looking for new and different ways to make them.

I ran across a great sale on ground chicken breast, so I packed my freezer full!  With our love of burgers and a freezer full of ground chicken, I was on a mission to find a great recipe for chicken burgers.
I found this recipe on the Food Network site, chicken burgers with garlic-rosemary mayo.
Garlic-rosemary mayo sounds delicious.  I have been wanting to make a chicken recipe using the rosemary I have been growing on my windowsill for the past year. Boy did this  chicken burger satisfy. The mayo and the rosemary made the burger extra moist and flavorful. I will be making these burgers again, and soon!
 The Best Chicken 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 with your favorite burger toppings and enjoy!
