Chicken tequilla burgers

This isn’t the prettiest photo. But that’s OK. Because this burger was very yummy. I don’t really drink alcohol on a school night. Don’t get me wrong, I would love to. But for me, a glass of wine on a weeknight seems to be crossing an invisible line I have made for myself.

So that is why an alcoholic burger on a weeknight felt particularly delicious and sinful. You can taste the alcohol, but not to the point of it being overpowering. It also makes for a juicy pattie, but it still holds together really well. It is also really simple to make.

I got the recipe from Annie’s Eats and I think we will definately be making this one again!

Chicken Tequila Burgers
via Annies Eats

2 cloves garlic, chopped
½-1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
2 chicken breasts (about 1 lb. total)
3-4 tbsp. cilantro
Zest of ½ a lime
1 oz. tequila
Dash of soy sauce
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
½ cup panko bread crumbs

For serving:
Burger buns
Sautéed bell pepper and onion

Preheat the broiler.  Line a baking sheet with foil and brush lightly with olive oil.  Combine the garlic, jalapeno, chicken breasts, cilantro and lime zest in the bowl of a food processor.  Pulse several times until the chicken is uniformly ground.  Mix in the tequila, soy sauce, salt and pepper to taste, and panko.  Pulse a few more times until the ingredients are well blended.

Form the mixture into 4-5 patties and place them on the prepared baking sheet.  Broil the burgers for about 12-15 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking to brown both sides.  Check for doneness before serving.  Serve on buns with sautéed bell pepper and onion, and lettuce as desired.
