Chicken Apple Burgers

Summer in Maine is in full swing and I wanted to share a quick and healthy burger recipe. My family loves this because it’s easy to put together and can be served on a bun, lettuce wrap, or on top of a salad. Enjoy!


  • 2 onions – finely chopped
  • 2 apples – finely chopped (I use either Granny Smith or Pink Lady)
  • 1 lb. of ground chicken
  • Neutral oil (vegetable or olive)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Get your outdoor grill started so you can cook the burgers on medium heat.
  • Add oil to a saute pan (you can do this on the grill or on your stovetop.)
  • Add onions and apples and season with salt and pepper.
  • Cook for 5-7 minutes, until soft.
  • In a bowl combine chicken, onions, and apples.
  • Season again with salt and pepper.
  • Form into 4 burger patties.
  • Either oil the grill grates or place an oiled piece of foil directly on the grill.
  • Add burgers to the grill and cook on each side for 4-5 minutes, or to desired doneness.
