i threw some ground chicken in my grocery basket this week. there’s more to life than ground turkey.
i love chicken/apple sausage for breakfast, so that combo would make a darn good burger. while training for my comp, if my meal plan called for apples that week, i would go get the BIGGEST ones i could find, lol. i have really grown to love red delicious apples- eat one every day now.
aminos! low sodium soy sauce alternative i use to marinate my proteins in.
i added the aminos along with my chopped apple, herbs, and seasonings into a mixing bowl with the chicken.
then grill’em up. you can cook them in a flat iron pan too, or even bake them in the oven. i just have a thing for grill marks, that grilled taste, and it’s the quickest method.
serving size: 2 oz patty
1 lb ground chicken
1 egg white
half a large apple (approx. 1 cup, diced)
handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
1 medium shallot, diced
1 tbsp smokehouse maple or any seasoning of your choice
3 tsp Bragg’s liquid aminos
fresh cracked black pepper
2 tsp liquid smoke (hickory or mesquite, you choose)
mix and grill. 4 min on each side should be perfect. watch them though.
add your toppings. that’s almond cheese- yep. this is a GREAT brand i found through an IG buddy, @spoonfulofit. it’s Lissanti and i found it at Whole Foods. it melts and tastes just like regular dairy cheese, she was right!
i shoulda let the cheese melt on the patties, what was i thinking? next time.
ok enough sammich pics, go make one.
have a happy, lean & clean friday in advance,
