Chicken Burgers

chicken burgers

Some nights you might find me at the grocery store wondering what I will serve my family for dinner. I usually have an idea of what I would like to cook during the week, but it changes as the week advances. I don't really plan a menu and when it's 4 o'clock I drive to the grocery store to quickly pick ingredients for our meal. The cashiers all know me by now because they see me everyday. I like to serve my family fresh food.

These burgers were created after I came back home with chicken and buns. I still had no idea what I would do with the chicken and just opened my cupboard and saw La Grille Smouldering Smoke Applewood. I simply decided to use it in a marinade for my chicken. We grilled this chicken on our Kamado Joe, and we were delighted with the smoky, wood-fire flavour.

If you want to serve these at your next BBQ, why not cut them in four? They are so cute and the small ones will be able to eat them.
