Chicken Fajita Burger

This chicken fajita burger recipe is even better than the classic! A juicy with just the right amount of spice chicken burger is topped with bell peppers and onions of course cheese makes for a fun twist for your Mexican meal fix. My grandchildren didn’t like the bell pepper and onions (they are not into vegetables) But they did eat the burger.






Chicken Fajita Burger

1 pound ground chicken
1 egg
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
1 Tablespoon Sriracha hot sauce (or your favorite brand)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt

For topping:
2 bell peppers, your choice of colors
1 Red onion
2 Tablespoons butter
Guacamole, optional
4 slices cheddar cheese
4 sandwich buns
4 tablespoons butter
In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, egg, bread crumbs, hot sauce, garlic powder, and salt. Use your hands to combine. Pat into 4 equal sized patties.

Place the chicken patties on a hot grill over medium heat and cook for 5 minutes. Flip and continue cooking for 5 minutes. Top with the cheese, turn off the grill, and close the lid to let the cheese melt. Remove and cover to keep warm.

While the burgers are cooking, heat a large skillet over high heat and melt the butter, add onions and peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until peppers and onions are tender crisp and slightly browned, about 7 – 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat another skillet over medium heat and butter each bun. Toast the buns the buns until golden.
Top the buns with guacamole, burgers, peppers and onions; serve.
