Ohhhh yeah…..this is a good one, folks. It’s kind of funny how the recipe came about. My dear hubs had requested pesto chicken and pasta for lunch, and I took the package of chicken out of the freezer, thawed it, and made the pesto. When I opened the package, however, it was ground chicken. Not chicken pieces as I had thought. Now what? I wasn’t about to make a whole other lunch after having gone through all that trouble already (all that trouble…hahahahahahaha), so I thought, “Self? What should we do?” And I replied, “Mix ‘em both together and make a burger out of it.” “Ha! Great idea!” “I know!” So that’s what I did. The whole talking to myself thing and everything. LMAO
1 1/2 pounds ground chicken breast meat
1 recipe for pesto
6 buns, spread with butter, garlic and a bit of salt, toasted.
Combine chicken breast and pesto and form into patties.
While buns are toasting, grill or pan grill the burgers about 4-6 minutes on each side, depending on thickness.
Serve on prepared buns.
