Chicken Tequila Burgers

This is another easy (and different) weeknight burger recipe.  I enjoyed this recipe more than my husband did – but you can’t win them all!  Next time – will try these on the grill instead of the broiler.  I served them with some tortilla chips and salsa.  Enjoy!


  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 3-4 tbsp. cilantro
  • Zest of ½ a lime
  • 1 oz. tequila
  • Dash of soy sauce
  • Kosher salt and ground black pepper
  • ½ cup panko bread crumbs

For serving

  • Burger buns
  • Sautéed bell pepper and onion
  • Lettuce

1. Preheat the broiler.  Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with with olive oil. 

2. Combine the garlic, jalapeno, ground chicken, cilantro and lime zest in the bowl of a medium bowl. Mix in the tequila, soy sauce, salt and pepper to taste, and panko until evenly mixed.

3. Form the mixture into 4-5 patties and place them on the prepared baking sheet.  Broil the burgers for about 12-15 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking to brown both side.

4. Serve on buns with sautéed bell pepper and onion, and lettuce as desired.
