Cajun Chicken Burgers

Here’s another recipe using my Cajun spice mix.  These Cajun chicken burgers aren’t quite as spicy as the jumbalaya recipe – and for a version with a little less heat, substitute plain mayonnaise for the creamy Cajun dip.

I have trouble finding good lean ground chicken at my grocery store.  They sell ground chicken, but it is typically not breast only meat.  So, instead of buying ground chicken, I just used two chicken breasts I had in the refrigerator.  Simply cut them into chunks and blend in the food processor!

Creamy Cajun Dip:

Combine the following ingredients in a small bowl and then chill in the refrigerator while preparing the burgers:

  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun spice mix

Cajun Burger Ingredients:

  • 3/4 pound of ground chicken breast (or two medium chicken breasts, ground in food processor)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun spice mix
  • Green leaf lettuce
  • Sliced tomato
  • Creamy Cajun dip (above)
  • Wheat rolls

Cajun Burger Directions:

Combine the ground chicken, egg, breadcrumbs, and Cajun spice mix in a mixing bowl.  Shape into burger patties (this will make two large burgers or three smaller burgers).

Brush a nonstick grill pan (or fry pan) with a small amount of oil, and preheat over medium heat.  Place the burger patties on the grill pan, cooking for about 5 minutes on each side.  Cook the burgers until an internal temperature of 160°F is reached.

Spread the creamy Cajun dip on both sides of the wheat rolls.  Top with one burger, lettuce, and tomato.
