Amaranth Chicken Burgers
These delicious Amaranth Chicken Burgers are very low in fat yet are light and moist thanks to the addition of amaranth, a superfood that's much less known than its 'cousin' - quinoa - though equally healthy (if not more) and versatile.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 6 minutes
Total Time 21 minutes
Servings 6 burgers
- 3 chicken breasts about 500g, diced
- 1 cup cooked amaranth rinsed, strained
- 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
- 3 spring onions/scallions finely chopped
- 4 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 3 tablespoons breadcrumbs plus more for coating
- Olive oil for frying
Place the garlic, onions, parsley and the meat in a blender and process for a few seconds, until the mixture is well combined and solid.
Add the amaranth and 3 tablespoons of the breadcrumbs, season and stir well. Form burgers and coat in the remaining breadcrumbs.
Heat up a little oil (about 3 tablespoons per batch) and fry the burgers over a low/medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side. Serve in a burger bun of your choice with fresh lettuce or this easy bbq sauce.
