Chicken Burgers with Chipotle Cream


Another healthy dinner, in my tummy. I even exercised today! But don't worry, I evened this out by baking Peanut Butter M&M Butterscotch Cookies this morning. It's about BALANCE, my friends. (More on those later...)

For some reason, I've always thought ground chicken would be dry and flavorless. Well, not if you add Greek yogurt (instead of eggs) and panko (instead of bread crumbs) and spices, honey, lemon zest, garlic, cilantro, and things like this. DELICIOUS! NUTRITIOUS!

I served this with a Chipotle Cream from this recipe, but I cut it in half. It offered a wonderful kick, and my leftover sweet balsamic onions really balanced everything out. Balance.

Excellent - but I spy an M&M neatly tucked into the middle of the burger - trying to pull a fast one?

The look delicious Siri! I love chicken burgers! The addition of Greek Yogurt is brilliant, I'll have to try that trick next time I make them.
