This recipe technically makes a single serving, but it's a generous one by my standards (about 15 shrimp) It's so quick and easy, but packs some serious spice! My measurements in the kitchen are never really exact and yours don't have to be either. You can adjust to make it as hot (or not) as you like.

BBQ Chicken Burgers
Very Good 4.0/5
(42 ratings)

What a treat these burgers are! I love how the tangy flavor of the sauce and the peppery notes of the greens play off the savory burger.

A very delicious variation on chicken salad. Using Dijon and honey in the dressing make the difference. It's great to make a whole batch and just eat on it all week. Super crunchy, super good, you'll want to serve this at all your brunches and lunches.

I just whipped this recipe up to use a little leftover chicken I had and to feed my "hungry as a bear" husband some lunch and it was a hit. You may wish to season a little different according to taste.
