Welcome to grilling season! It's the time to throw everything on the BBQ & eat outside, and enjoy the wonderful weather. These easy grilled chicken burgers are a great way to use your grill and please your tastebuds.
Season 4 chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Place on hot grill or cast iron skillet. Cook for 5-6 minutes, then flip. If there's room, add 4 onion slices to grill and grill for about 5-6 minutes.
Cook 2nd side of chicken for 5-6 minutes. Check doneness after 10-12 total minutes by checking internal temperature with a thermometer or by slicing breast in half. Center should not be pink.
Add cheese. Cover until ready to serve. Set out condiments, toast buns if desired, and enjoy!
I find that most grocery store chicken breasts are about 6-8 ounces, adjust cooking time and serving sizes depending on how big your chicken breasts are. Also adjust serving size to meet your own needs, you might want a whole chicken breast or a portion of it.
You can top your burgers with anything, but I love grilled onions, tomato, and lettuce. Avocado, peppers, & grilled pineapple are all great toppings.
I like to serve my burgers with french fries and cut fruits and vegetables to offer my guests a couple choices. Alexa sweet potato fries are awesome and easy to prepare.
