1 3/4 lbs. chicken cutlets
1 lg red bell pepper, finely chopped
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
3/4 cup purchased chili sauce (I use Bennett's)
1/2 tsp canola oil
4 oz sliced part-skim sharp cheddar cheese
8 lite hamburger buns (I use Merita brand)
1 lg red onion, sliced
8 lettuce leaves
2. With your hands, mix the bell pepper, cilantro and chili sauce into the ground chicken until just combined. Do not overmix. Form into eight 1/2-inch thick patties.
3. Preheat grill. Lightly oil grill rack. Grill burgers on rack over moderate heat for 5 minutes. Flip burgers and top with 1/2 ounce of cheese and continue grilling until chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes more.
4. Meanwhile, grill the buns, cut side down, until golden brown, about 1 minute. Arrange burgers on buns and serve with onion and lettuce.
Number of Servings: 8
