HAWAIIAN CHICKEN BURGERS
1 pound ground chicken
1/2 cup canned pineapple tidbits, drained
2 tablespoons coconut aminos
5 green onions, chopped
3 tablespoons almond flour
1. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients and form into 4 large burgers. *Note – it will be easier to form the ground chicken in to burgers with wet hands. The mixture will be sticky and not as easy to handle as beef or turkey.
2. Place the formed burgers on a parchment-lined plate, then place into the freezer for at least 15 minutes.
3. In the meantime, preheat the grill to high heat (roughly 400 degrees).
4. Generously brush the grates with oil and place the burger on the grates. The grates will need to be well oiled so the burgers don’t stick. You may have to wet your hands again, or gently roll them off the parchment paper.
5. Cook for 4-6 minutes per side.
6. Serve with more diced pineapple if desired.
7. If cooking on stove top, add PLENTY of oil to a skillet or pan to avoid the burgers sticking. Turn heat slightly above medium/high and place the burgers into the once the oil is hot (do not add the burgers before the pan is HOT). Sear 2-3 minutes per side then transfer to the oven at 350 degrees for roughly 8-10 minutes until thoroughly cooked.
*Note: you MUST used canned pineapple, not fresh. Fresh pineapple will break down the burgers, and they will fall apart while cooking
