  • First, throw this into a food processor:
  • ◦4 oz. wilted spinach
  • ◦1/2 small onion
  • ◦1 clove of garlic
  • ◦2 green onions, roughly chopped
  • Try not to drool into the food processor when your kitchen becomes overwhelmed with the smell of fresh garlic and onion. Then, stir this mixture into 1 lb. ground chicken and add:
  • ◦2 T. balsamic vinegar
  • ◦2 t. soy sauce
  • ◦1 t. lemon juice
  • ◦1/2 t. chili powder
  • ◦1/4 c. shredded cheddar cheese

Step 1

Then, I added about 1/2 c. of Panko (NO EGG!), mixed it all together, and formed them into patties:
I refrigerated these for about 2 hours prior to dinner. It allowed all the garlic and onion to release into the meat. Also, the soy sauce and balsamic are super flavorful – more so after a few hours in the box. You could grill or broil these, but I chose to cook them in my 10″ skillet.
