One of my favorite things about summer is eating BBQ. Usually we have burgers, hot dogs, brats or steaks with all the other traditional BBQ foods. Sometimes though, I feel the need to mix it up. Step outside of the norm if you will! It was on one of those days that this recipe materialized and quickly became one of my favorite BBQ foods. I promise you no one will be disappointed and your friends and family will be amazed by your creativity. Enjoy!
Chicken Teriyaki Burgers
1 pound ground chicken
1 bottle of SoyVey , or whatever brand you prefer
Fresh , sliced in rounds
3 Garlic cloves, minced
Salt and Pepper
Your favorite buns
Put ground chicken into a mixing bowl with minced garlic, about 1 tbs of soy sauce, just enough to lightly flavor your meat and add a couple shakes of salt and pepper. Let this sit, covered in the fridge for 20 minutes. Slice onions and pineapple, set aside. Take meat out of your fridge and form it into patties. I like a good sized patty and normally get 4 patties from 1 pound of meat. Brush teriyaki sauce onto both sides of your burgers, stick on grill for 5-7 minutes per side, depending on the temperature. While those are cooking, immediately begin caramelizing your onions on medium heat. When you flip your patties, brush again with teriyaki. The last 3 minutes put your pineapple on the grill. If you want, brush that also with teriyaki but it's not necessary.
When the meat is done, assemble these delicious burgers with your pineapple, onions, fresh tomatoes and spinach. DELICIOUS!
I absolutely love these burgers! They are different, tasty, EASY and sure to please even picky eaters! :)
