Sweet and Spicy Chicken burger

 Burger Showdown!

Can you believe that summer is almost over? It’s the last week and a half to the beginning of school and everyone is in a mad dash to get ready. What I think we should be doing is getting in those last BBQ’s, while basking in the non-existent morning traffic. Why are we in such a rush to get back to the hectic school term? The first step in enjoying the last few weeks is to indulge in this delicious chicken burger. It’s sweet, and spicy, filled with delicious pineapple and crispy bacon.
To grill or not to grill that is the question. I was contemplating doing a fried chicken patty, but then felt that the dish needed a grilled chicken patty to impart the traditional burger smokiness. For the sweet, I used guava jam and grilled pineapples (In truth I went a little over board on the guava jam).  As for the spicy, I added red pepper flakes to the burger and the patties were seasoned with a hot scotch bonnet pepper. Here in Jamaica depending on who grows the peppers, they tend to vary in their degree of heat so the hotter the pepper the less you will need.

My burger patties were large and thin, but if you like thicker burgers you can certainly make them thicker; just make sure to test the inside to make sure it’s cooked. The only thing I would recommend adding to this burger is some mayo on the top bun (how could I have forgotten) but apart from that its perfection. 

For the patty
1 lb CB chicken breast ground
1 teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon Black pepper
½  small Onion chopped
¼  teaspoon scotch bonnet pepper minced
¼  teaspoon Allspice
1 tablespoon Coconut oil
½  teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
½ cup panko breadcrumbs (optional)
Warm Guava jelly
Grilled pineapple
Romaine lettuce
