When looking for a twist on the usual burger, try this one with ground chicken and smoked cheddar. It's sure to become a barbeque favorite.


  • 1 1/3 lbs ground chicken
  • 1 cup sliced olives
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 4 oz smoked Cheddar cheese, sliced
  • 4 thick slices red onion
  • 4 whole grain buns, sliced in half and lightly grilled
  • garnish of mixed baby greens


  • Mix chicken with 1/2 cup olives, breadcrumbs, barbecue sauce and green onions until evenly combined. Form into 4 (1/3 pound) patties and grill over medium-high heat for 4-6 minutes.
  • Flip burgers and cook for 4 more minutes, then sprinkle with remaining olives and place slices of cheese on top of each. Cook for another 1-2 minutes until cheese is melted and burgers are cooked to desired doneness. While burgers are cooking, grill onion slices for 3-4 minutes on each side. Place one red onion slice on the bottom half of each bun. Top with burgers. Garnish with baby greens if desired and cover with bun.
