Summer Heat Chicken Burger Recipe #BreakUpWithGroundBeef
Last week I co-hosted the #BreakUpWithGroundBeef Twitter Party with a few fellow bloggers where Maple Leaf Prime brought on Chef Bob to talk about the many ways you can spread the love to turkey and chicken. I loved the challenge so much that my friend Sober Julie and I decided to have a challenge of our own, a recipe cook-off. To celebrate, we are giving away $50 in Maple Leaf Prime product coupons.
Take the original Maple Leaf Prime Nacho Chicken Burgers recipe and remake it into another version. Of course there is no prize for us but a little friendly competition never hurt. Make sure you enter the giveaway at the bottom for your chance to win $50 in coupons.
My Recipe vs Sober Julie’s
Neither of us have been privy to the other recipe making each quite unique. I’m eager to see what Julie has come up with; knowing Julie it will be something pleasing to the eye as well as full of flavour. Immediately upon taking the challenge I had the use of pineapple set in mind, pineapple and chicken already go well together in other recipes but this is a burger. Burgers are meant to have a little more bite and what better to pair with the sweetness of the pineapple than a little heat. I made this Grilled Corn Avocado Salsa to put on top of my burger and add a flavour burst but you can keep it as a side appetizer, if you prefer. Be prepared for a messy meal if you keep it on the burger; for me, a messy burger is just right.
In the burger you will seek your heat from the jalapeño and seasoning and once this 3 cheese burger hits your mouth with toppings of juicy mushrooms, pineapple and spinach it will melt together in your mouth. Take a look through my recipe and let me know which recipe you think you’d prefer, mine or Sober Julie’s. Don’t worry, you won’t hurt our feelings.
