Oh my burger, I love this! If I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life, it would be this burger. Just... go make it. And then we'll talk about it.
Spicy Hawaiian Chicken Burgers
halved from The Girl Who Ate Everything
4 pineapple rings, sliced 1/2 inch thick
4 slices pepper jack cheese
4 hamburger buns
1 lb ground chicken
1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp seasoning salt
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/2 clove garlic, minced
optional for topping: red onion, chipotle mayo
Combine the ground chicken, soy sauce, paprika, chili powder, seasoning salt, cumin, and garlic in a large bowl. Lightly mix with your hands and divide into 4 large even balls. Form patties. Refrigerate about 30 minutes. Preheat grill to medium heat. Coat grates lightly with oil. Grill burgers over medium heat about 6 minutes per side until done. Top with cheese for the last 1-2 minutes of cooking time to melt. Remove to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Add the pineapple rings to the grill and cook about 2 minutes per side. Assemble burgers by topping the burger and cheese with pineapple, onion (optional) and chipotle mayo.
