Rosemary Chicken Burgers

I’ve been looking for some ‘healthier’ recipes for the summer season so when I saw Giada on the Food Network make these chicken rosemary burgers I was all over it like jam on toast.

I will say I ran into a bit of a problem-these are meant to be sticky—really sticky. But, when I halved the recipe, I failed to half the olive oil. Oops! So these were a sloppy mess and they didn’t quite stay together on the grill pan. Regardless, they were absolutely phenomenal and I will make these again. So if you are trying to cut out beef (did I really just say that??) these are the perfect alternative. I also used Smart Balance mayonnaise to cut back on some of the fat.

I paired these up with homemade buns (recipe from King Arthur). I make the dough in my breadmaker, then I pulled it out to shape the rolls, let I them rise, and then in the oven they go. From start to finish about 2 ½ -3 hours with about 10 minutes hands on time. Who knew making homemade rolls would be so amazing? Seriously…try these. You will never buy rolls again from the store!I added sliced peaches to the tops of the burgers for some added taste—amazing!!!

I have been thinking about making homemade rolls... but then I just buy them in the end. One day! I'll bookmark the recipe for that day!

finsmom-they were so good, I bet if you love rosemary you will love these.

Coco Bean- I was aprehensive about making my own rolls at first but if you have a bread maker it does all the work. Once you see how flippin easy it is...you will make them all the time. It literally only takes minutes. Its great!

I am betting for those who can't give up on the beef that the rosemary would work very well with beef too.
