This may be one of the BEST chicken burgers I have ever eaten. I’m not even joking. Don’t get me wrong, I love a classic beef burger, but these cilantro lime chicken burgers are next level. With a tangy flavor and mild kick, these burgers are super nutritious, healthy, and honestly taste like you’re eating at a fast-food restaurant. Crazy, right?

How to eat these juicy and healthy burgers

I love serving these burgers with my balsamic roasted sweet wedges. They are tangy, delicious, and roasted in the oven yielding a perfect crunch on the outside, yet are deliciously tender on the inside. Plus, they could not be any easier to make.

As for toppings, you can use anything you’re craving!

  • Tomatoes
  • Lettuce
  • Cheese
  • Raw onions
  • Ketchup
  • Mayo
  • Mustard
  • Jalapeño slices
  • Avocado

The options are endless!

What bun to use for healthy cilantro chicken burgers?

Personally, I absolutely LOVE using Outer Aisle low-carb, keto-friendly cauliflower thins. You can simply pop them into the toaster oven on 400 F for 5 minutes or put them in the toaster on medium. Think warm, slightly crisp parmesan heaven. I’m obsessed to say the least.

These protein-packed cilantro lime burgers are incredibly tender, juicy, and perfect for a barbecue. With summer in full swing, I know I’ll be making these a lot!

Description

These tender and juicy cilantro lime chicken burgers are healthy, super nutritious, and jammed packed with flavor. This gluten-free, low-carb, and paleo-friendly recipe is absolutely perfect for a summer weekend grill-out. Plus they only take 25 minutes to prepare!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped spinach
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped white onion
  • 2/3 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp red chili flakes
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Form 4 equal-sized patties.
  2. Heat a non-stick skillet to medium (optional: spray with avocado oil or a drizzle of olive oil). Add burgers to the skillet and cook 6 – 7 minutes on the first side. Flip. Cook 6 – 7 minutes on the second side. Or until the internal temperature reached 165 F. 
  3. If using outside grill, heat and cook burgers 5 minutes on the first side and 5 minutes on the second side.
  4. Construct your burgers with toppings and bun of choice. I love using Outer Aisle Gourmet cauliflower thins toasted until warm and crispy! I paired my burger with a side of sweet potato fries.

    I made these cilantro lime chicken burgers on Saturday night and they turned out fantastic. I added a little McCormick Montreal Chicken seasoning to it, used sliced pepperjack and topped it with lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, avocado and red onion served on a whole wheat bun. Healthy and delicious, first time ever using ground chicken for a burger!
