Ingredients

Chicken Fajita Burgers

Toppings

Instructions

  • Dice onion and bell pepper. Set aside.
  • Chop boneless, skinless chicken thights into 2" pieces.
  • In a skillet over medium high heat melt the coconut oil and add the diced onion and diced bell pepper.
  • Saute until the onion is lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool.
  • In your food processor, place the chopped chicken thighs and hit pulse 20 – 25 times until the chicken is coarsely ground. Note, you don’t want to just hit automatic and walk away as the texture will be more like a sausage and not like nice hamburger if you do this.
  • Add in the spices and hit pulse 5 – 8 times until well combined.
  • Spoon the mixture into a bowl and with a spoon mix in the sauteed onions, bell pepper and pepper jack cheese. Shape into four 4″ chicken patties.
  • Place a skillet over medium high heat and add the chicken patties.
  • Grill until golden brown, roughly 6 – 8 minutes and then flip and repeat.
