Basic Chicken Burger & Balsamic Coleslaw

July 1, 2014

Burger time! I made this one today in honour of Canada Day…it’s probably the simplest burger recipe I have, but it’s a good standard. It takes literally ten minutes to throw together and you’re ready to grill.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • Half medium onion, diced
  • 2 stalks of celery, diced
  • Cloves
  • Garlic powder
  • Pepper

Put your onion and celery into a bowl and hand mix in the ground chicken. Add the spices and continue to mix until just combined.  Use either a half cup or one cup scoop to measure out the meat, form into balls and then patties. Cook on a pre-heated flat top grill. THAT’S IT!! I serve these on big Boston lettuce leaves with some salsa on top.

For a quick and yummy side, try this incredibly healthy coleslaw filled with vitamins A and C and iron:


  • Half head green cabbage, chopped
  • Half head red cabbage, chopped
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 1 beet, grated
  • Glug of EVOO
  • A few shakes of red wine vinegar
  • A few more shakes of balsamic vinegar

Put all the veggies in a large Tupperware tub and pour the EVOO and vinegar on top. Put the lid on and shake vigorously. BOOM. Done. Depending on how many people are eating, you’ll have a bunch left over for a couple of lunches or dinner again the next day.

It honestly doesn’t get easier than this.
