Chopped Chicken Burgers with Berbere Spice and Goat Cheese
Sink your teeth into this delicious delight in this Chopped Chicken Burgers with Berbere Spice and Goat Cheese recipe. Enjoy the flavors as they unfold in every bite!
- 1 large egg
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons Berbere Spice
- ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
- Pinch kosher salt
- 1½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into large chunks
- 2 ounces prosciutto
- 4 hamburger buns
- 4-ounce log chevre (soft goat cheese)
- Heat a grill to medium. Oil the grates, or coat them with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the egg, garlic powder, berbere, black pepper and salt. Set aside.
- In a food processor, combine the chicken and prosciutto. Pulse until the meat is well chopped but still chunky, about 10 seconds total. Scrape the sides of the bowl and pulse again if any large pieces remain unchopped.
- Transfer the meat to the bowl with the egg mixture, then mix well. Form the meat into 4 loose patties. They will be moist and not hold together well.
- Use a spatula to carefully place the burgers on the grill and cook, covered, for 4 to 5 minutes. Flip the burgers — they should be firm enough to move easily now — and cook for another 4 to 5 minutes, or until a thermometer reads 165 degrees F at the center of the burgers.
- Top each burger with a quarter of the cheese, then serve on a bun.
