Get out the BBQ sauce, there's a burger waiting!
I love, love , love barbecue sauce...homemade, out of a jar, it really doesn't matter, it's all delicious, especially when grilling season comes around.
One of my favorites is barbecue chicken pizza from Pizza Luce here in the cities. They call their's the Wrangler Pizza, and it is delicious! Crispy crust topped with barbecue sauce, loads of thinly sliced chicken, Monterrey jack and mozzarella cheese, thin slices of red onion and banana peppers...they make the pizza!
So a couple of months ago I decided to try and make a burger resembling the taste of barbecue chicken pizza, and the result, AMAZING! Try it for yourself if you wish...I served our burgers atop crisp buns topped with red onion and jack cheese, accompanied by chipotle slaw, so good!
Barbecue Chicken Burgers (by me)
1 lb. Lean Ground Chicken
1/4 C finely chopped banana peppers
salt and pepper
1 T barbecue grill seasoning
1/2 C barbecue sauce for basting the burgers while grilling
Monterrey Jack cheese, slices of red onion, hamburger buns, and more BBQ sauce for dipping
Grill as normal, basting every time you flip or every couple of minutes with BBQ sauce, top with toppings and enjoy!
