Chef Lucas' Mexican-Style Chicken Burgers

Enjoy a new take on an old favourite! This recipe was created by Chef Lucas for the Hispanic market, but knowing how we love to try new things, I thought you might like to add it to your reperotoire.

Chef Lucas’ Mexican-Style Chicken Burgers

• 1 lb. ground chicken
• 1 egg
• 1 Tbsp. capers
• 1 medium tomato
• 1/2 purple onion finely chopped
• 1 cup cilantro (chopped)
• 1 Tbsp. hot sauce
• salt and pepper to taste
• 4 pieces Pita Bread or Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns
lemon juice

In a bowl, add egg and beat with salt, pepper and hot sauce. Add chicken, onion and
tomato, finely chopped. Next, add cilantro and capers.

Make medium-size balls and place them in the Tupperware Burger Press. Grill on each side as desired. Once they are ready, sprinkle with lemon juice. Cut the bread in halves and place Mexican-Style Chicken Burgers on them. Garnish with lettuce and tomato and other condiments as desired.
