Chicken Burgers with Pineapple Salsa
- Preheat grill. For salsa, in a medium bowl combine crushed pineapple, sweet pepper, half of the green onion, the cilantro or parsley, garlic, and jalapeno or serrano pepper. Cover; chill until serving time.
- In another medium bowl combine the egg, bread crumbs, remaining onion, basil, sage, seasoned salt, and pepper. Add ground chicken or turkey; mix well. Shape into four 3/4-inch-thick patties. Grill patties on the grill rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 14 to 18 minutes or until juices run clear and an instant-read thermometer inserted in side of burger registers 165 degrees F, turning halfway through grilling. (Or, preheat broiler. Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat on an unheated rack of broiler pan for 10 to 12 minutes.) Serve burgers with salsa. Makes 4 servings.
From the Test Kitchen
Because hot peppers contain oils that can burn your eyes, lips, and skin, protect yourself when working with peppers by wearing plastic gloves or bags. Be sure to wash your hands thoroughly before touching your eyes or face.
