Southwest chicken burgers

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pounds Ground chicken or turkey meat
½ cup Shredded zucchini
2 tablespoons Canned chopped green chilies
½ teaspoon Cumin
½ teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon Freshly ground pepper
½ cup Prepared salsa
2 tablespoons Chopped green onions
2 tablespoons Chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon Plain nonfat yogurt
4 Hamburger rolls; split and toasted
Lettuce leaves


1. Combine chicken, zucchini, chilies, cumin, salt and pepper in bowl.

Shape into four ½-inch-thick patties.

2. Coat large nonstick skillet with vegetable cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Add patties; cook 5 minutes per side. Combine salsa, green onions, cilantro and yogurt in small bowl. Arrange each burger on the bottom half of a roll. Top each with 3 tablespoons salsa mixture, lettuce and remaining roll halves. Makes 4 servings.

Read the label carefully to look for chicken or turkey breast meat that contains about 97% lean meat. The chicken mixture is very moist, but it cooks up nicely.
