Semi-dried tomato chicken burgers

Wow – what a day. I felt like I barely stopped from the moment I got up, with a busy work schedule keeping me on my toes all day. Thankfully,  we had a quick and easy dinner planned for this evening. burger3 Sun-dried tomato and chicken burgers! The burgers themselves were super easy to make, thanks to the not so secret ingredient… IMG_2328 Semi-dried cherry tomatoes (oops I just realised these should have been sun-dried tomatoes!) IMG_2331 I picked up this variety a little while ago from our local supermarket, more out of curiosity than anything else. And, I figured they would be the perfect flavour enhancer for our burgers this evening. Combined with chicken mince, garlic, flaxmeal and a sprinkle of salt and pepper, shaped into 4 patties and set aside in the fridge for half an hour or so to firm slightly. IMG_2333 As to cooking the burgers, my trusty George Foreman grill was the perfect solution (given it is a bit chilly to stand outside cooking them on the BBQ), with a slice of mozzarella added to each patty during the last few minutes of cooking. IMG_2350 I served the burgers on a couple slices of GF bread that I had toasted lightly… IMG_2345 And finished them with some other delicious burger ingredients including avocado, tomato and cos lettuce. burgercollage And my favourite? IMG_2343 Fresh basil. IMG_2356 As far as mid week meals go, this one was a winner – fast, easy and healthier than their chain store counterparts. IMG_2355 And not to mention being packed with flavour. burg4 But then again – the chicken + semi-dried + basil combination rarely fails to disappoint lol. Sundried tomato and chicken burgers (makes 4)

  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Place all ingredients in a bowl, and stir until just combined.
  2. Shape into 4 patties, and place on a plate lined with baking paper.  Cover with cling wrap and place in the fridge for 1/2 hour to firm slightly.
  3. Heat non-stick pan or grill, and spray lightly with oil. Cook patties for 4-5 minutes each side, or until cooked through.

  1. i like trying different varieties of burgers, but the one i make most is quite traditional (except with ground buffalo instead of traditional ground beef) 🙂 these sound great!

  2. These look delicious! and that GF bread actually looks good too, I think I may need to seek it out 😛

    I'm noy much of a burger girl, actually. But then again, I also don't like sandwiches – I'm an open faced/toast girl 😛

  3. Looks fabulous, Lisa! I've just started to really love sun-dried tomatoes. I never really ate them growing up because of mum's allergies. Love how fresh your cos looks!

  4. I love having veggie burgers mid-week – although sometimes my pattie and salad get paired with an English muffin or a wrap 😛 It's one of the easiest dinners around. I really the idea of sun-dried tomatoes and basil too, I'll be adding them next time I make burgers.
