Bacon-wrapped chicken burgers is one of my favorite meal.

Ingredients

  • 1½ pounds (370g) ground chicken
  • 8-10 strips bacon,fat trimmed
  • 8 oz (240 g) smoked cheddar, chopped
  • 2-3 cloves garlic,peeled and minced
  • 1 cup fresh mushrooms,chopped
  • 1 yellow onion,peeled and sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for sauteing onion and red peppers
  • kosher salt and ground peppercorn, to taste

Method

Step 1

In a large nonstick skillet, cook bacon until cooked through. Pat dry with paper towel and set aside.

Step 2

In a large mixing bowl, combine ground chicken, Worcestershire sauce, and seasoning. Mix well, using your hands.

Step 3

Form 8 evenly formed balls. Press into ½-¾ inch Patties.

Step 4

Form a dimple into the center of each patty. In the center of 4 burger patties, spoon ¼ of chopped mushroom and cheese mixture.

Step 5

Cover each of the mushroom-cheese burger patties with the remaining four burger patties. Press the edges of the bottom and top patties together, forming 1 burger patty with the mushroom and cheese mixture inside.

Step 6

To wrap chicken burgers, lay 2 strips of bacon over the prep-plate. Form an X shape with cooked bacon.

Step 7

Place the burger over the center of the crossed bacon. Tightly pull the bacon up and around the side of the chicken burger. Secure the bacon with toothpicks. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Step 8

Remove meatballs from refrigerator. Allow to stay at room temperature for 15-20 minutes.

Step 9

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Step 10

Brush exterior of burger patties with olive oil. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.

Step 11

Grill chicken burgers over preheated grill for 3-5 minutes per side.

Step 12

Remove cooked chicken burger from the heat. Take off toothpicks. Cover with aluminum foil and set aside for 3-5 minutes before serving.

    This recipe is a little confusing. There is no mention of how the sliced onion and red pepper ae prepared. (Only mentions sauteing them.) Are they just a garnish after the burger is done?

    The ground chicken is very juicy and I had to drain it a bit to get the patty to hold together. With chopped mushrooms and Worcestershire Sauce, it is still too juicy, hard to hold together.. Also, what is considered the “seasoning?” I only saw salt and pepper. There are no directions as to when to add the chopped garlic. in this case should it be included as seasoning for the ground chicken or the mushroom mix?

    A lot to assume with a new recipe.

      Hi there! The red pepper is sauteed and then the onion is sliced and added. The ground chicken has been seasoned with salt and pepper, and you may also have added Worcestershire sauce. The seasoning would be the herbs or spices used to add flavor to the meat. There are a wide variety of types of seasoning that could be used, including but not limited to garlic powder, cayenne pepper, oregano, basil, thyme, parsley, and dill. With a short ingredient list, you do need to be very careful with the measurements. The ground chicken is very juicy and does not hold together well if the ratio of meat to seasoning is too much higher than the suggested amounts. Thanks for reaching out to us, we work hard at improving our experience and will keep you in mind for future suggestions.
